I can't get into Gransnet on either my laptop or mobile. Today's site keeps asking me to "share". I am in the process of leaving facebook, and it will take 90 days before I am free of it. If I go back into it they will assume I am re-joining. Do I have to "share" in order to access Gransnet?

Not sure I understand, why are you accessing GN through FB? Just use the GN website itself.

I think theres an issue with the daily email today - if you click on the link to a forum it is taking you to a Facebook share pop up. Maybe usual service will be resumed tomorrow? I checked and by opening GN the normal way you don’t get the pop up.

Hi all,

This is a feature we had previously and have been looking at bringing back. If you click on the thread you should get the thread as ever - if you don't want to share simply don't click on share. But we are grateful for your feedback and ironing out any kinks.

This is driving me mad on my PC.
I'm being asked to share, but I am not on Facebook and have no wish to be.
I cannot get rid of the pop up.

Am I the only one who joined on day one but doesn't remember having this share feature?
If it was there I certainly didn't use it then and wouldn't use it now if it were brought back.

If I go in via the daily email it wont let me past the link to facebook, I cant close it and I cant get any further. I dont want to share on Facebook!

It is impossible to access the first topic TomGransnet.

Agree with Bamm, impossible to access first topic, it's only because I have an old email from Gransnet that I am able to get into the site. PLEASE get rid of this!

Does everyone but me go to GN through an email I just click on my GN icon ?

I can't get on it via email either. I click on the topic and it takes me straight to share and wants to send me to Facebook. I can't go anywhere else as it won't let me. I am not clicking on share, this is where the link is taking me.
Only way I can access gransnet is to go directly in it.
I don't want to view topics via FB, I hope this isn't the way it is going to go as I will no longer be using it if it is.

I have a shortcut icon to the forums and so have no need to click on the email links. Bluebelle
