Facebook Aims To Curb App Spam: Starting Oct. 2, Developers Can No Longer Use API To Post Directly To Friends’ Walls

No Comments

Starting Oct. 2, applications on Facebook will no longer be able to use its application-programming interfaces to post stories directly to the walls of users’ friends, the social network announced in a post on its developer blog.

Facebook pointed to negative feedback from users as the reason for the change, saying:

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.
