As we shared in today's F8 keynote, we're re-opening app review, a process that Facebook uses as a way to help ensure the best possible Facebook experience for your app's audience. We made several updates to the review process that enables stronger enforcement of our Platform Policies.
Our primary focus is building tools for the ecosystem while creating value for people. As such, we're re-opening our app review with a heightened level of expectations as we're doubling down on our commitment to transparency and giving people more control over how their data is shared.
Developers familiar with our previous app review process should be aware of the following changes.
We're committed to building for people and businesses. We understand that a rigorous app review process can require additional work on your part, but we believe these changes are necessary to maintain trust in our ecosystem. We'll continue to evolve the app review process to improve the experience for you, while maintaining the high expectations people have for Facebook connected apps.
As part of these app review enhancements, and to improve the development cycle, we are also changing the behavior of development mode. For apps in development mode, API calls will return user data only for those with a role in the app (i.e., admin, developer, or tester). This applies to the Facebook Profile, Pages, and other APIs.
Today, we're launching Graph API v3.0 with the following updates.
For a full list of the Graph API v3.0 updates, please read the Graph APIs v3.0 Changelog. You can use the API Upgrade Tool to see if your app will be impacted by any version changes. Be sure to check how much longer we will be supporting the version of the Graph API you are running.
