Facebook is making a number of changes to their platform to discourage misuse of personal accounts and improve their ecosystem. Here's how the changes impact third party social media management tools, including Buffer:
Facebook Profiles: From today you will no longer be able to post to personal Facebook Profiles using Buffer. To learn more about this change and the difference between Facebook Profiles and Facebook Pages, please read this help article.
Facebook Pages: Unaffected by this change. You can still connect and post to Facebook Pages using Buffer.
Facebook Groups: You can still connect and post to Facebook Groups that you manage using Buffer. The steps to connect a Group to Buffer have slightly changed. Here's how to connect a Group.
We understand how disruptive changes like these can be and will continue to do everything we can to support your social media success! Ultimately, we believe this shift from Facebook will have a positive long term impact for the entire ecosystem, including brands and marketers that use healthy social media strategies with tools like Buffer. We're excited for the future ahead.
