We’re still waiting to be reinstated.
When Facebook pulled the plug on Australia last week, a whole heap of pages got caught in the crossfire and were taken offline. Australians reacted with gifs and memes, and have had a good laugh but many pages, including ours, are still on hold. When they’ll be back online, we’re not so sure. (Featured image: @mattyzzy)
However, we totally understand that not everyone loves Facebook. And not everyone uses it. Probably less so now, which is why we have been posting our content—articles like The Immersive, Multi-Sensory Van Gogh Alive Exhibition Opens In Melbourne In Autumn, Melbourne’s Street Eatz Is Back And They’re Doing Two-Hour Bottomless Booze Packages, and All Aboard This Rickety Cart For A Multi-Sensory Trip Through The Spookhouse—on other platforms since before Facebook’s ban wiped out all news from the continent.
So, if you jumped on the #deletefacebook train or are diversifying from where you get your entertainment info, here’s where you can find all the juicy Secret Melbourne content that’s been MIA on Facebook since Thursday.
Yes, we know, Facebook owns Instagram. But some companies within bigger companies do their own thing and we’re hoping that this remains the case with Instagram.
Besides, Instagram is much better than Facebook.
If you’re still not on Twitter, then this might be the best moment for you to fly across because everything we write also makes its way onto our Twitter account. Also, all the things on IG that are making you laugh probably came from Twitter first. Or Reddit, but we’re not on Reddit.
Okay, so our newsletter is still in the works. But it’s coming and our soon-to-be first edition will be shot straight into your inboxes with all the juicy goss. You’ll find out about things to do, best restaurants and bars to visit, and everything art, culture and travel in your city because you can’t be expected to search for these things every week, right?
To sign up for our newsletter, head to the homepage and type your email into the little subscribe box you can see on the right-hand side of the page.
Before Facebook and other social media platforms became the main way we consume content written and published by others, we would punch in a URL and head to the homepage of that website. Funnily enough, this feature is still present on the world wide web in 2021.
To save you typing in the full URL, or even a part of it, you can bookmark our homepage so that it’s just one or two clicks away.
