Facebook API changes for personal profiles

Posted by @audreylaine, Jul 19, 2018

Yesterday I received an email from Hootsuite, which I sometimes use for my personal social media accounts. Here’s an excerpt:

Facebook is making API changes that may affect your use of Hootsuite. As a result of these changes, starting August 1, the Hootsuite dashboard and mobile app will no longer support publishing or scheduling to personal Facebook profiles.

This change does not affect posting to Facebook Pages or groups. You will still be able to engage with your audience in a Facebook profile stream within Hootsuite.

The email also provided a link to this help article. If you use Hootsuite, Buffer, or another social media management tool for your personal accounts, take note.
