In order to ensure quality content is posted, Facebook requires that messages posted to Facebook be fully user-generated, and not pre-filled with any content that the user did not write themselves. As a result, we are making some updates to RSS Feeds for Facebook and the Hootlet/Social Share feature.
Updates to RSS / Webfeed for Facebook include:
- Removal of pre-filled link description in message body.
- Removal of pre-filled URL in message body.
- Increase to user-generated prepended text to 100 characters in message body.
Here are how the RSS / Webfeed updates look:
Updates to Hootlet / Social Share include:
- Removal of pre-filled text and URL in the compose message box for social networks that support link previews.
See Manage Hootlet for more details on what the new updates look like.
