I have added a Facebook like box and like buttons on my blog and, recently, I've been seeing on analytics a lot of hits to pages ending with
I've found a related thread on the Facebook Forums which, worryingly, mentions that for some weird reason IE8 users are being redirected to a blank page! This is terrible, am I losing a significant portion of my visitors because when they try to visit my blog they're greeted by a blank page? (I don't have at hand a Windows computer with IE8 to check)
Also on a related question on SO, it is suggested to add
xmlns:fb="facebook.com/2008/fbml" to the main
html tag (which I've done just now), and to add a
channel.html file. But I can't do the later, because my blog is hosted on blogger and I can't upload html files.
So my question is twofold:
- even after adding the
xmlns:fb, could this still be an issue that affects IE8 visitors
- how should I go about to fix it for my blog on blogger?
