Facebook changes permissions for third-party platforms

The privacy issue that Facebook has been accused of recently with Cambridge Analytica has been on the tip of our tongues at Purple Giraffe HQ this week.  In case you missed it, read more about it here.

Those who use Social Media posting platforms will be feeling the same pain we have been.

Taking steps to keep user’s information safe and secure, Facebook are making changes to the way third party marketing platforms, such as Hootsuite and Social Report, access data and information.  In turn, this changes how they can operate and the functionality they can offer.

There have been a number of articles written on the topic by these platforms.  Take a look at what is being said here: Social Report and Hootsuite.
