The Rome school district has launched a new Facebook page due to technical issues with its prior page.
A notice on the district’s website on Tuesday said the new Facebook account is at www.facebook.com/romecsdny.
The district is “no longer able to access our previous official Facebook page,” according to the new Facebook site. It said “this is the new official page of the Rome City School District. Please like and share for the most accurate and up-to-date information.”
The previous page recently was locked by Facebook “due to a technical glitch on their end where they cannot verify our location,” district Superintendent Peter C. Blake said Sunday in his online blog. The district had been seeking to get the page unlocked with Facebook, he added, but “if we cannot get movement from them this week” it had plans to “move forward with the creation of a new Facebook page.”
Blake in his May 10 blog had said the Facebook corporation locked the prior page for location and management verification purposes.
