OptiACCESS No Longer Supports Facebook

3 September, 2018

Effective August 1, Facebook no longer allows any third-party applications to publish on an End-User’s wall, due to changes made to its Application Program Interface (API) documentation. As a consequence of this change, OptiACCESS no longer supports Facebook posting.

Please note, users currently trying to post via the OptiACCESS on Facebook will receive an error message back from the server about permissions. See below:

Requires either publish_to_groups permission and app being installed in the group, or manage_pages and publish_pages as an admin with sufficient administrative permission

In recent months, Facebook has been aggressively making changes to their API to make it more secure and to protect user data; this was one of the changes introduced.
