Why are my Facebook.com links not working?

  knowledgebase, Social Updates

There may be cases where you are unable to post certain updates using facebook.com links. This is due to a technical limitation imposed by Facebook in the aim to protect their users’ privacy.

You may see an error like such:

Facebook error: Permissions error (code 200, subcode 1609008)

Facebook.com links can be of different types and Facebook’s privacy restrictions may end up rendering some links not usable. You can take a look at different links here:
