Facebook Changes & Roadmap

Will today's change affect Supermetrics' public data connector?

"Pages API: Until today, any app could use the Pages API to read posts or comments from any Page. This let developers create tools for Page owners to help them do things like schedule posts and reply to comments or messages. But it also let apps access more data than necessary. We want to make sure Page information is only available to apps providing useful services to our community. So starting today, all future access to the Pages API will need to be approved by Facebook."

  • Hi Dan,

    thanks for asking. Yes, we're already working on it and hopefully there will be no interruptions in our connector.

    We'll release an update about this if it requires any action from your side.

    Best regards,

    -Supermetrics Team

  • Some of my queries on Instagram appear to have already been affected. Can you confirm what is going to work there, if not everything?

    I was using this to query public pages for content and like/comment counts on that content. Is there still a way to do that? Or to at least pull the images themselves? 

    Here is the changelog showing yesterday's sudden deprecation on IG:


  • We'll release an update about Instagram related queries next week. We're trying to get everything as back to normal as possible.

    Best regards,

    -Supermetrics Team
