It's been nearly a year since we announced Graph API v2.0, the new Login, and a Login Review process where we look at and approve any permissions that your app requests beyond public profile, e-mail and friend list. We also announced that all apps requesting these additional permissions must undergo review by April 30, 2015, when we will deprecate Graph API v1.0. That deadline is approaching, and your app may break if you have not been approved for the permissions you're using, or if you haven't upgraded your app to call Graph API v2.0 or greater.
Here are some tips to prevent your apps from breaking after April 30th, 2015.
During Login Review, people on our review team actually use your app to see if the permissions you're requesting are used to improve the user experience, and is tied to a direct purpose within your app.
Graph API v2.0 contains some important changes from v1.0. Your app will automatically be upgraded after April 30th, 2015, but to prevent unexpected behaviors, we suggest you update all of your app's API calls well before that date. To help you upgrade, we've built tools to make it easy to see how your app behaves against v2.0:
Submitting for Login Review and upgrading to Graph API v2.0 or greater can happen independently. It doesn't matter which one you do first, or you can do both in parallel.
With the migration deadline coming up on April 30, 2015, we strongly encourage you to plan ahead so that you have enough time to submit your apps for Login Review as well as to third party marketplaces such as Google Play and the App Store.
