The following changes can be enabled/disabled using the "October 2013 Breaking Changes" migration in the app dashboard until October 2nd when they will go into effect permanently for everyone.
Game Achievement action custom properties will appear in the
data field, and consistent with other Open Graph Actions.
Currently the API returns all likes by default. After the migration, fetching a user's likes via the Graph API will return 25 results at a time. We've added pagination to the results so you can page through to all of a user's likes.
Apps will be able to retrieve all likes on a post (rather than the first 4 as it is today) through paging. As a result of the functionality update, the like count will be moved to the summary field.
As we have deprecated
network based privacy settings on Facebook, we are removing the network privacy field from Graph API and FQL. Currently if an app attempts to create a post with a network privacy, it will default to 'only me'. After the migration period, posting with a network privacy will result in an error.
We have found that posting content via API (stream.publish) on a friend's wall leads to a high incidence of user dissatisfaction (hiding content, blocking the app). After the migration period, posting content to friends' timelines via
stream.publish will no longer be allowed. Please use the Feed Dialog for posting.
Currently, we have a bug where
limit=0 returns all results. After the migration period, specifying a limit of 0 in FQL or the Graph API will return zero results.
After the migration, the Send Dialog will use Open Graph meta tags and ignore
end_time field. Replacing
bid_type int values with enum values. You must now specify query params when retrieving information about adgroups. The only field returned by default will be id. See Ads API adgroup docs for more detail.
You must now specify query params when retrieving information about adgroups. The only field returned by default will be id. See docs for more detail.
include_budget_remaining flag. You must now specify query params when retrieving information about adgroups. The only field returned by default will be id. See docs for more detail.
run_status field. You must now specify query params when retrieving information about adgroups. The only field returned by default will be id. Creative types 8, 9, 10, 16, 17, 19 are removed. See docs for more detail.
After the migration period, apps cannot hash using CRC32, will only accept MD5 hash. See docs for more detail.
The following changes will go into effect on October 2, 2013.
Native apps that implement Facebook Login by embedding their own web views inside their apps provide inconsistent and subpar user experiences. For example, users who are already signed in to Facebook on their devices must re-enter their Facebook credentials when logging in via custom web views. This results in a poor user experience as well as lower conversion for apps. In contrast, login flows provided by Facebook's official native SDKs allow people to skip entering their credentials. See our iOS and Android SDK documentation for more details.
To provide a better experience for all Facebook Login users, we are changing our policy to prohibit native iOS and Android apps from using custom web views for Facebook login.
Native iOS or Android apps initiating their own web views for Facebook login are required to use our official SDKs for login by October 2, 2013. Native iOS or Android apps using third-party SDKs that provide Facebook login via custom web views have an extension until January 8, 2014 to work with their third-party provider to resolve this or to migrate to our SDKs.
