First Facebook Fail

Better at the beginning than too late

  1. Publish app
  2. Reviews
  3. The next steps

Today I’ve opened my Facebook page from an external account and found that my posts are not displayed …

I was shocked because I have already spent 20 € for promotions and more amounts will still be incurred.

How could that be? I had programmed my Facebook app and my posts were displayed to me from my profile, but not externally.

Publish app

Of course, I went home immediately and looked for the cause of the problem. I noticed that the app is still in development mode and I have to publish it first. So I published the app but still could not see the posts. What a crap!


Luckily I had written a backup function that automatically sends me an email if a post could not be published on Facebook. The content of this mail was as follows:

In the mail it is written that my rights to publish a post have not been released by the Facebook team. So once again I went into the Facebook app and once again stated everything from the beginning. I wrote down what want to do with the app, how it works and i had to send them a Screencast too. Then the app was sent for review and i’ve asked how long it takes until it’s released. The answer was 2-3 days. In reverse, that means for me that the 30 euros were spent for nothing.

The next steps

I have now held all promotions and will only activate them again when my app is unlocked. Nevertheless, I will write down my learnings for you over the next week.
