Looking for a plugin to add OpenGraph, Twitter and other Soccial Media metadata to the Newsletter...
Category: JFBConnect

Monetizing it is most important.

ACYMailing has a panel called "Header" where I can add things like:

Code:

<link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Cinzel" rel="stylesheet" />

and it gets picked up.

I was thinking that a plugin for ACYMailing could populate that panel with the Social Media metadata for a particular article and then ACYMailing could handle the processing of that metadata so that when the Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or whatever Social Media icon is clicked a nice post is sent to the Social Media venue.

Of course the page could be scraped to locate the metadata on the page, that is an approach that ACYMailing could develop all by themselves.

The thing is how do we monetize this. How many people use your page tags, and then how many people that use those page tags would then take the trouble to worry about that in their newsletters?

I wanted to do this, because I am always looking for way to increase reach.

Category: JFBConnect

Looking for a plugin to add OpenGraph, Twitter and other Social Media metadata to the Newsletter so posts of articles can be made directly from the Newsletter.

ACYMailing has a primitive social media tag that will allows adding an image, that has the string Facebook, twitter, LinkedIn, etc. in the file name, in the folder media/com_acymailing/templates, to the social media post from the newsletter. But this only allows for one image to be used for each social media venue, i.e. the organization logo in the correct size for the particular social media venue..

The way I see this happening, with bulletins that go out with the posting of each new article on the site, is that I would like to include the image, title, description, and all the properties for Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn when the user clicks the social media icon on the bulletin containing the latest article, so that the post going to each of these social media venues is complete and well formed. Granted they can always come to the site by clicking the Read More link, but they may not do that, and I want to give them the opportunity to post right from the email/article bulletin.

I asked ACYMailing about this a year ago, and I still don't see a plugin available.

Alex is this possible, would it be profitable for you to do this, in other words would this be an enhancement that would draw more people to JFBConnect?

The statistics of what is hte most popular Social Media venues has changed since SourceCoast...
Category: JFBConnect

Thanks for the heads up Melissa. Good to know you guys are on top of it.

I had to do some research on which Social Media venues were the most popular in 2019 and I came up with that list.

Again, good to know that you guys have already looked into it, and I trust that you will provide the most appropriate solutions as you always do.

2.  Facebook Messenger
3.  WhatsApp
4.  Instagram
5.  Twitter
6.  LinkedIn

Are you going to be adding those in this lineup that aren't currently supported to JFBConnect and SCLogin any time soon?

Facebook disabled the App used by JFBConnect for posting articles and logging in.
Category: JFBConnect

I have to add, that when I try to post to the organizations Facebook page as the owner of the Facebook channel, I get the following message when trying to save the Channel data:

Facebook API Error: Error validating application. Application has been deleted.

The application has not been deleted and it is live. I have changed the channel email address, but I have updated that everywhere it needs to be update, yet when I save I still get that message. When I login as the social media manager and owner of the Facebook channel for the website, I do get the authentication message like I should be getting.

There is something about putting that Facebook App in development mode, but when I do that there is no difference still get the Application has been deleted message.

Since I have changed email addresses, is there something else I needs to be doing to get JFBConnect to connect to Facebook?

Facebook disabled the App used by JFBConnect for posting articles and logging in.
Category: JFBConnect

Alex, Melissa, Rather than trying to comment on that old post, I decided to create this anew.

If you recall Facebook disabled the app for www.911tap.org because it "created a negative user experience."

I appealed several times to have the ban lifted on the app with no response from Facebook

I finally deleted and recreated the Facebook App and it is working for now.

I am now going to wait and see if Facebook disables the App again. If they do, then I think there should be no confusion about the fact that they are actively engaged in censoring content.

Not sure what the response should be at that point.

See: https://www.911tap.org

OK, I just made another appeal, we will see what happens.

Category: JFBConnect

I have logged another appeal, but it has ben two months since the last appeal and I haven't heard from Facebook.

Is there anything else I should be doing. I can see nothing that would suggest, that the App that allows people post content from our website, is in any way creating a negative user experience.

Haven't heard a word in over a week.

Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

I have looked, carefully, there is nothing except that message. One thing that did appear on the developer chat was that we had dishonored their brand by using icons other than the official branded Facebook icons. They provided a link to appeal and get the Apps restored, but the appeals form was down. When I asked about that they replied that they were in the middle of sweeping changes.

Here is the exchange with Facebook:


Timothy Michel

I have tested in both Firefox and Chrome and I get the same 404 Sorry the link may be broken or the page no longer exists.

I have looked in the Chrome Network page and all requests are http 200 successful.

I have looked in Chrome Console and there are no error messages. So Facebook is processing the request for the page.

The site where the app was disabled is https://www.911tap.org

All custom social media icons have been replaced with the official branded icons from each social media venue so that the brands of each are honored.

Hi Timothy,

If this is still occurring on your end, could you provide the app ID that is affected by this? You can use confidential reply for any sensitive info.

App ID: XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Timothy Michel

This is the page that you referenced for making an appeal: https://developers.facebook.com/appeal

I have changed the icons on the website in question, https://www,911tap.org to comply with the official Facebook brand.

There is no form available at https://developers.facebook.com/appeal for submitting an appeal. It is just an information page as follows:

App Appeals

#ff6600



Restore Apps

#ff6600



Restore Admin Access

#ff6600



Missing Apps

#ff6600



So I do not see that there is any course of action I can take except for making an appeal here. Perhaps Facebook has rolled out a new AI platform that serves different pages to different users based on the context of their use of Facebook or based on the context of the content of their website which is linked via the App ID to Facebook.

I any event, I need instruction from you telling me how to proceed.

That is all there was and then I got the email saying that the 9/11 Truth Outreach App was giving Facebook users a negative experience.

Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

I finally was able to successfully file an appeal yesterday. Nothing so far. As mentioned earlier in this thread, I changed all of the icons on the site to the ones you provide, which upon inspection, appear to be the icons Facebook has determined best represents their brand. I gave them four screen shots, so there should be no ambiguity.

So all I can do is wait.

Found this while poking around: Deep learning frameworks and tools for research and production.

Was not able to find this section. They just changed their interface today.  Developer area in the Settings -> Advanced area for "Allow API Access to App Settings"

Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

Originally there was a message that said that they sent out a message last May asking users to reconfirm their apps by August 6 or their apps would be deleted. I didn't see the message and I was removed from managing the website for a couple of months. After they figured out that they didn't have anyone else to manage the website they asked me to upgrade the site and get it up to PHP 7.2 standards. All seem well until a couple of months ago when the Facebook Like and Share buttons stropped working and gave an error message instead.

I see that all the messages go to the owner of the website, not me and the owner never mentioned it to me.

Yes, I see this [Off  ] Status: In Development and when I hover over the [Off  ] button a popup says, "You may not make your app available to all users."

So I will just have to wait until Facebook lifts thew restriction.

I provided several screen shots showing the official branded Facebook icon.

this just came in as well: FACEBOOK, INSTAGRAM AND WHATSAPP HAVE BEEN DOWN FOR SOME USERS GLOBALLY

Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

Alex, Melissa, I see you are swamped with issues, so I will say I understand up front, if you are taking longer than usual to respond to individual request.

My Channel Facebook App on developer.facebook.com is still in Sandbox mode. I am still wondering what to do.

Log Into Facebook
Facebook Will Be Back Soon
Facebook is down for required maintenance right now, but you should be able to get back on within a few minutes. In the meantime, read more about why you're seeing this message. Thanks for your patience as we improve the site.

The organization I manage the website for are now telling me to just uninstall JFBConnect because they can just copy and paste an image and URL to Facebook when they write an article. I tell them that having the JFBConnect extension in place allows other users to post articles to their Facebook pages as well, they then say that there is such little traffic that it isn't worth it. I say the only way you are going to increase traffic is if you get exposure on venues like Facebook. They say we have had exposure on Facebook and still we have such little traffic.

At this point I just want to get the plugin working again and then walk away.

The problem is that Facebook has sandboxed the App. Do I delete the App and let JFBConnect recreate it, (no I create the App, and let JFBConnect add any Login, Share or Like Social widgets to the App with Autotune), or do I negotiate with Facebook to have the App returned to live status? The App isn't getting populated with Share and Like widgets by JFBConnect. Again, do I delete the App and create a new one, get the new App ID and Secret key and paste them into the Facebook Autotune Basic Info section, and then complete the Autotune process?

When I run Autotune with the existing App Id and Secret key, I am now getting the error message: "Facebook API Error: (#100) Failed to update the application" It may be that Facebook is down for a few hours instead of a few minutes.

I am going through the JFBConnect documentation again to see if there is something that I have perhaps missed. But I keep coming back to the same thing, should I delete all apps on the Facebook account, create new ones and then run Autotune?

Finally got the following from Facebook:

Mar-12-19 02:35:23
Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

No JFBConnect is the only Social Sharing Extension I use and I have it set up just like you do in the lower right hand corner of the page.

If I am logged in with the special Social Media email address that is an admin on the Facebook page, and that is the same as in the Facebook Channel settings email address, I can post to Facebook. I can post as Social Media admin and I can use the Share button to post.

If I log out and then log into Facebook with my personal Facebook account I get the following:

Error
Warning
App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions.

In other words I can only post to Facebook as a test user, not as a regular user

When I go to developer.facebook.com and log in with the special Social Media account that I set up specifically for JFBConnect and which is an admin on Facebook, when I look at the apps, they say that they are in developer mode. Nothing I can do in JFBConnect will change that except for create another instance of the App in developer mode on Facebook.

My question is, should I go ahead and click "Create Test App" from the JFBConnect App that is listed in the Facebook Page drop down to start the confirmation and approval process with Facebook. This has nothing to do with JFBConnect, nothing to do with the website, this has to do with getting Facebook to accept the JFBConnect App, which it isn't doing automatically. the other options is to delete those Apps and run Auto Tune again, which will recreate the App, but my suspicion is the App will again be in developer mode until I go through the Facebook confirmation and approval process.

Mar-11-19 18:56:17
Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

I got restored as admin, had Facebook send a new confirmation email and I confirmed, and now everything works again. Logged in with Facebook account and posted an article to Facebook and Twitter.

Notice that the character count restriction on Twitter has been increased considerably.

By the way, what channels can I set up besides Facebook and Twitter. I have been away from this for awhile and need a memory jog.

Oh I just looked, only LinkedIn.

I logged out of the 911tap.org, and tried to post using the "Share" button and got the same response:

Log in to use your Facebook account with 9/11 Truth Action Project.

#ff6600



#00cc00

I am given the option of creating a test app or deleting the app.

This got deleted because they sent out a message last May that all Apps had to be reaffirmed or they would be deleted. Facebook says that because people did no reaffirm, that 100s of thousands of Apps were deleted. The JFBConnect App is still there, in fact there are two versions of the same, bu it is in development mode with the two options I mentioned above.

Should I select to Create a Test App, and then go through the Facebook verification process again???

Feb-28-19 19:14:26
Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

Yes, I have to be restored to admin on that page, or there is nothing I can do. As you say, I can't login through the Joomla interface, I have to login using the Facebook login in order to be able to confirm. That means I have to be able to log into Facebook with those credentials or it won't work, and I can't do that unless I am admin.

Feb-28-19 05:18:56
Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

When I try to log in using Facebook, I get this message:

If I try to post an article to Facebook, I get the following message:

Log in to use your Facebook account with 9/11 Truth Action Project.

#ff0000



When I try to post an article summary to Facebook I get the following message, even though I can successfully log into Facebook:

Your Account Has Been Disabled

Go To Help Center

I have been pestering Facebook. When I go to the Appeals page, it say that there is nothing wrong with my account.


This just in.
The people who run the organization who's website I managed, demoted me to a moderator on that Facebook page and deleted that user that was connected to the Facebook Channel on JFBConnect. That is the reason the App got deleted, the user account listed in Channel settings, no longer exists on Facebook.

And the people that made that decision to delete that account on the Facebook page do not understand why this would cause a problem.

The board director who's name I used as the manager of that Facebook Channel probably saw that his email address on that page was [email protected] and had his new Social Media persons delete that account and create a new one using his regular email address. I would assume that since the App was no longer connected to any user on that page that Facebook automation just deleted the App during a regular cleanup cycle.

I have to be restored to Admin in order to create a new special Social Media channel user account that I can then list in Joomla users and select in the Facebook Channel interface.

Wish someone would have told me they did this. but I would expect that after they did this, the Facebook features on the website stopped working, then I get a call, and they say they have no idea what happened.

Feb-28-19 00:40:19

Alex, I am getting this error message when using the Facebook channel app.

App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions.

I have had one email from Facebook, and they asked me to describe the problem to them and give them the App ID so that they could restore it. I did that but havcen't heard back form them for 5 days.

Have any of your other clients been able to get their Apps restored?

When I go to developer.facebook.com and login in, I don't see any apps listed. What is it I should do to get create a new app? I get errors when I try.

This is the latest from Facebook:

Developer Appeals

I see that all the Apps have been deleted. I am trying to remember how to recreate the Apps using the JFBConnect component. Oh yes Auto-tune, but that isn't working.

I have zero love for Mark Zuckerberg at this moment, I really don't have time for this.

Facebook said that our Facebook login button doesn't clearly identify Facebook

I had a Webroot filter installed in Firefox and disabled that but no joy. I will have to register as a Web Developer on Facebook to leave as comment. Funny, they didn't leave any instructions for Firefox.

I tried it in Chrome as well. same result.

I will leave a comment. Maybe they will take a look at the site and see that I have swapped out all the custom social media icons for the official icons and perhaps that will be enough for them to reinstate the app.

This is the comment I left Facebook


I have tested in both Firefox and Chrome and I get the same 404 Sorry the link may be broken or the page no longer exists.

I have looked in the Chrome Network page and all requests are http 200 successful.

I have looked in Chrome Console and there are no error messages. So Facebook is processing the request for the page.

All custom social media icons have been replaced with the official branded icons from each social media venue so that the brands of each are honored.

I just want to make an observation here, Alex or Melissa, and that is all the HTTP request statuses for the page are 200, there are no 404 page not found error statuses. That means that Facebook is serving that Error page and it is not the result of an HTTP request failure. I imply from that that Facebook doesn't want to take any appeals at this time.

Guess I will have to wait until they make that appeals form available again. Maybe they were getting swamped with appeals. Maybe this was the result of an AI app gone wild.

Unfortunately, Alex when I attempt to file and appeal I get the following error.

    Search for appeal on developers.facebook.com

When I go to developers.facebook.com and click on "Appeal an App Decision" I get the same message.
