Facebook blocking automatic cross-posts
« on: August 03, 2018, 01:41:13 AM »
"It doesn’t seem like Twitter users looking for other workarounds will have much success either, given this situation. Other apps, like IFTTT, for example, are throwing errors as of today, too."

FB is still allowing crossposting to FB Pages only, no xposting to timelines.  All networks and services must reapply for that.  Companies are being more tightly screened as entities before approval and access to the new API.

I'm thinking it is just a matter of time before the other social networks tighten up too, mainly Twitter.
