Facebook Policy Updates — Changes to Sprout’s Compose Experience (April 2018)
In accordance with ongoing changes that Facebook is making to their data policies, the Page search endpoint has been suspended for all third-party applications. This impacts the following areas of the Sprout Social platform:
- Compose: Users can no longer mention Facebook Pages when composing a message.
- Compose: Users can no longer add the Branded Content tag when composing a message.
- Competitor Reporting: Users can no longer add new Pages to track in the Facebook Competitors Report. However, the report will still work for any Pages added prior to these changes.
These changes are part of a larger series of changes resulting from Facebook's ongoing updates to their data policies.
