    Default Facebook stopping 3rd party app posting (Lightroom CC/Classic...)

    Sorry if this has been posted before, but I have just started to get messages in Lightroom Classic about not being able to use it to post photos directly to Facebook anymore from 1 August 2018:

    Not sure if anyone else uses the facility or not but thought I would pass on the info in case anyone hasn't seen it.

    Unsure how long this will be for, or if its permanent, but will have to resort to other means now.

    Itís a while since I uploaded an image from LR to Facebook. Next time I warm the valves up on my PC Iíll give it a go and let you know Andy. But I use a third party app rather than the LR one, not sure what the developer is doing (if anything to overcome this FB change)

    ST-EOS - I use the jF plugin - but even his website says it might stop working soon as it is changes that Facebook are making and not giving out the details to 3rd party apps.

    I use it to update my personal page with holiday snaps :D and also my "Photography by" page that I set up in case I went down the selling prints route at all.

    Don't use Facebook or LR but I would have thought that blocking 3rd party apps, especially ones used for posting image content, is rather counterproductive - if users can't easily post their images to their page, which is surely part of Facebook's raison d'etre, then I'd think there's a good chance they'll wander of to somewhere more user oriented like Instagram...
