This blog will be off of Facebook for a while
Last night I received a practical lesson in why you don’t depend on playing in someone else’s sandbox.
I was updated some posts last night, and for some reason known only to Facebook, they blocked the Facebook app I was using. This means I won’t be posting updates until Facebook decide to unblock the app. (I’ve already started the resolution process with Facebook, but that’s going to take a couple days.)
I really do not know why Facebook blocked the app; it wasn’t anything more than the bare minimum I needed to put updates on facebook. I set it up, and I know it didn’t do anything else. I also know that no one else could have used it, so there was no way for it to have been malicious.
Facebook did give a reason, but it doesn’t make much sense:
Your app XX has had some features limited because our automated systems detected that your app is receiving a high amount of negative user feedback. The disabled features are:
Publishing Feed Stories disabled
Why would anyone complain about my app? It’s just a little bit of code that does the one job.
If anyone knows the answer, please tell me.
