Why doesn't a link work?

Sometimes you'll click a link but won't be able to view the page it takes you to.

This might be because you need to be logged into that website, or to be a specific type of user (for example, someone's Facebook friend, or a specific customer).

Other reasons a link might not work are because content has been deleted, the website it's on is broken, or characters are missing or wrong in the URL you've clicked.
