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. Australian’s 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.

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 Brisbane Ice Cream Festival Returns To West Village This March And Entry Is Free, This Is What You Can Expect From The Final Piece Of The La Costa Puzzle Opening On Friday, and 500 Years Of European Art Will Call Brisbane’s QAGOMA Home While The Met Is Renovated—on Instagram 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 Brisbane 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.
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.
