Are your Facebook photos disappearing? 

Mine are, too. I first noticed that some older photos were disappearing from a couple of my Facebook Pages.

Initially, I reported the problem on this Photos Bug Report page.

Then I posted a message in the Facebook Help Forum.

Then I found this FAQ page, which offers a form on which to file a report.

No response. It was like pissing into the wind.

But since only a few pix were missing, I decided to replace them.

Then I noticed that the pix which I replaced were disappearing. Yikes.

Then some photos from my Personal Facebook account (as opposed to my Facebook Pages) started disappearing. Double yikes.

It looks like the Facebook photo sharing application is eating pictures, so make sure you have backups.
