As you probably know, my Powernaut pages have a Like button which links 
to Facebook.  When I follow the button, I get an admin page.  Today on 
that page I got this message...

Migrate Your Page

This is the administration interface for your webpage at Because External 
Pages have been deprecated this External Page can no longer receive new 
likes and will soon lose its ability to publish to users that have 
already liked the webpage. In order to continue gaining likes and 
publishing to those users, you should convert the webpage into a 
standard Facebook Page by clicking the 'Migrate Page' button below.

... uh, Facebook, am I reading this announcement wrong, or are you 
saying you want me to publish Powernaut comics on your site instead of 
mine?  Not gonna happen.  And I wonder how, say, the New York Times 
feels about *its* Facebook like buttons no longer working.
