    How can I read as an admin my customized posts (country, language) on my like-page if I don’t have the same location? All my postings for different countries disappeared on my wall.

    if you are an admin, you wno’t have problems reading the posts on your own page i guess. if yes, there must be some option for that.

    Between “language” and “country”, is it an “AND” relation or “OR” relation.
    For instance if I target my post to “Japan” as the country AND “Japanese” as the language at the same time, can people in US who use facebook in Japanese read that post?

    Thank you for your time.
