Potential Changes to Automated Sharing from Nearby Now to Facebook

Potential Changes to Automated Sharing from Nearby Now to Facebook

Hello, 

Facebook has announced policy and functional changes to their API as part of their continuing efforts "to make improvements to Facebook to keep people‚Äôs information safe, secure, and in their control."  

These changes include removing the ability of a third party app, such as Nearby Now, to automatically share client content like check-ins and reviews from client accounts to their Facebook business pages.

We are currently exploring options. However, it is likely that as of August 1, 2018, these changes will require us to stop automated sharing of check-ins and reviews from client accounts. 

Manual sharing is not at all affected. You will still be able to share check-ins and reviews to your personal or business Facebook accounts by clicking the Share links on the check-in or review reports in each client's admin dashboard.

We will provide further updates based on our investigations in late July.  If it does become necessary to sunset the feature, we will take care of the shutdown without requiring any additional effort on your part.

Best,
Nearby Now Support Team
