Update: Facebook Profiles can no longer be connected to Statusbrew

You can no longer connect personal Facebook Profiles to Statusbrew, and from July 31, 2018, you will no longer be able to post to Facebook Profiles that were previously connected. You will still be able to connect and manage Facebook Pages.

This outcome is a result of Facebook's decision to improve their ecosystem and prevent spam and misuse. Of many changes to their platform, one of these includes removing the ability for third-party apps (such as Statusbrew), to post to personal Facebook Profiles on your behalf. This change comes into effect on July 31, 2018, and in preparation, we have disabled new Facebook Profile connections from today.

This change is part of a broader shift that Facebook is making to improve their ecosystem and discourage misuse of personal accounts. We believe it will have a net positive effect, especially for small businesses and organizations using healthy social media strategies with tools like Statusbrew.

Facebook Profiles vs. Facebook Pages

We believe that Facebook is also actively encouraging people to use tools like Statusbrew for their business or organization, rather than personal use. They are continuing to support the use of Facebook Pages, rather than personal Profiles, for things like scheduling, monitoring, and analytics. Below is a link to a Facebook FAQ, sharing more details on why you might like to convert your Profile to a Page:

Why should I convert my Facebook Profile to a Facebook Page?

We will continue to support Facebook Pages, and we're excited to keep iterating on our Facebook tools to bring you the best.

If you’ve been using Statusbrew to manage personal Facebook Profiles, we understand how disruptive a change like this can be. We’d love to continue to support you and want to thank you for being on this journey with us.
