RecurPost Responds To Facebook’s Changes To Groups and Personal Profiles

If you are part of our Facebook Group, then you might have probably heard about the new changes that Facebook made to its APIs in 2018.

Facebook has faced criticism for its handling of user data. To enhance the security of their platform, they have introduced several modifications in 2018. Some of these adjustments impact the functionality of RecurPost (and other similar scheduling applications).

The biggest change is in the way we post on personal Facebook Profiles.

You can Post on Facebook Profiles using RecurPost via Push Notification.

Unlike most other tools RecurPost has got your back. We have made few changes to the process of posting to let you still post on Facebook profiles.

We let you post on Facebook profiles with push notifications. With our service, you can post on Facebook profiles using push notifications. This requires you to download the RecurPost mobile app and remain logged in. When it’s time to post, our algorithm will send you a notification on your phone. By clicking on the notification, your message will be copied to your phone’s memory and you will be directed to the post dialog box in the Facebook app. From there, you can easily paste your message into the text box with a caption and you’ll be ready to post.

In light of recent changes to Facebook’s API, effective April 22nd, RecurPost has adapted an approach to ensure seamless posting experiences for you. With these changes, third-party apps like ours are no longer able to directly share posts on Facebook Groups.

However, we’ve implemented a new method using push notifications to facilitate posting to Facebook Groups. This requires you to install our RecurPost mobile app on your phone and log into your RecurPost account in the mobile app. Please make sure you allow notification from RecurPost if it is prompted on your screen.

We will send you a notification on your phone reminding you to share your post at the scheduled time that’s already on your queue. Once you click on the push notification, it will take you inside the RecurPost mobile app and then you need to tap on “Post Now” which will take you to the FB mobile app for posting.

Please note that when you tap on “Post Now” option then we will copy your image to your phone’s gallery and text to your phone’s clipboard.

When you switch to FB mobile app, you need to upload an image from your phone’s gallery that we have copied to your phone’s gallery and simply tap and paste your message in the caption that is copied into your phone’s memory before posting.

Please note that adding content in the library and scheduling the recurring posts or one-off posts are still the same and just like it was before. The only change is how you post now to FB Group.
