Hey guys,
I don't know when it stopped doing it, but I just noticed now - the Travelpod App on Facebook has stopped updating - so for example, on TP I've visited 39 countries, but on FB the TP map says it's 38.
Do I need to delete the app and add it again? Is it because of the map changes during the upgrade?

Hmmm... did you click "refresh map now" on the FB app?

Mine FB app is off by only one trip...

Yeah, I did that already. When I said I'd only just noticed, I noticed a few days ago, but kept forgetting to ask about it - so I've given it time to 'catch up' on that basis I guess....?

Clicking "Refresh map now" should do the trick.

Let us know if it's still off and we'll double check the logic. Sometimes the country count can be a bit tricky because of changing borders in the Baltic countries.

No, that doesn't work...I think it was in sync until my recent Portugal trip, but I might be wrong

Also, it's not just the number of countries, the number of photo's and entries are out of sync too between them

That's weird - I added the TP app as a tab at the top of the page, and it's in sync on that - the issue seems to be isolated to the main front page (it's still out of sync there)

Facebook is pretty determined to cache things on their side. Perhaps you could check back in a day?

I hope we can get this sorted.

Just thought I'd mention that I'm having the same issue as Kathryn. The map on the profile isn't syncing with new entries, and the "refresh map" link also doesn't seem functional.

Thanks for the update. Roy and I will be working on the MyTravelBlog Facebook map in the coming week, so we'll surely address these issues.

We'll be incorporating the new map that appears on your profile and cleaning the look up in general.
