I've been struggling lately with setting up the Facebook app. I returned to the platform after a couple of years of doing other things and now I find that the app needs to go through a review process and also some verifications in order to get access to some scopes.
The issue is that I cannot submit my scope access requests until I have a video showing how they will be used and I cannot implement my solution integrating the Facebook API as long as my scope requests haven't been reviewed and approved.
What permissions you refer to? You can test most permissions with an app in dev mode.
