Facebook API changes regarding publishing to user personal profiles

Changes to Facebook API for Publishing to Personal Profiles

Facebook has recently made important changes to their platform to combat spam and misuse. As part of these changes, Facebook no longer supports publishing to personal profiles. To align with these modifications, e-clincher has implemented the following updates:

Removal of the ability to publish to connected Facebook personal profiles within e-clincher.
Cancellation of scheduled posts to Facebook personal profiles starting from August 1st, 2018. Please note that any scheduled posts to personal profiles will not be sent to Facebook as they will fail.

However, we have introduced a new option called the "Share Now" button, which allows you to share content to Facebook personal user profiles.

These changes have no impact on your ability to publish and schedule posts to Facebook pages and groups that you own or where you have an assigned admin role.

We encourage users to convert their personal Facebook profiles to Facebook Pages. Facebook actively promotes the use of Pages for businesses and organizations, providing Partners with more publishing options and analytics data. By converting to a Page, you can take advantage of features like direct publishing to Instagram pages and advanced Instagram analytics offered by e-clincher.

To learn more about why you should convert your Personal Profile to a Facebook Page, please refer to the Facebook FAQ linked below:
