[Publish] Facebook Profiles can no longer be connected to Buffer Publish

Buffer Publish no longer supports Facebook Profiles. We still support Facebook Pages and Groups.

Facebook decided to make a number of changes to their platform to improve their ecosystem and prevent spam and misuse. One of these changes included removing the ability for third party apps to post to personal Facebook Profiles on your behalf. This change came into effect on July 26, 2018, and as such, it is no longer possible to connect Facebook Profiles to Buffer Publish.

This is part of a broader change that Facebook is making to improve their ecosystem and discourage misuse of personal accounts. We believe it will have a net positive effect, especially for small businesses and organizations using healthy social media strategies with tools like Buffer Publish.

We believe that Facebook is also actively encouraging people to use tools like Buffer Publish for their business or organization, rather than personal use. We will continue to support Facebook Pages and Groups, and we're excited to keep iterating on our Facebook tools.
