Version 10.0

Graph API

Released Tuesday, February 23, 2021 | Available until TBD | Blog post


Business Apps

Access Levels

Applies to all apps created after February 16, 2021.

All Business type apps created after February 16, 2021 will automatically be granted Standard access to the email and public_profile permissions.

Applies to all existing apps created after February 16, 2021.

All Business type apps created before February 16, 2021 will automatically be granted Advanced access to the email and public_profile permissions. Apps that are not using the email or public_profile permissions will be downgraded to Standard access for these two permissions.

Business type apps can upgrade to Advanced access for the email and public_profile permissions without going through App Review.


Groups

Applies to v10.0+. Will apply to all versions on May 25, 2021.

  • To align with other Facebook data retention policies, the Groups API will only include data created within the last 90 days of your queries. The data returned is dependent on the access level or mode of your app and your role on the app.
  • Groups API will now use a 2 tiered API access level system, Standard level and Privileged level, instead of Dev mode and Live mode access. Standard level access will only allow you to get data for users that have a role on your app, while Privileged level access will allow you to get data from all users in the group that the app is installed in.

Pages

Reinstated endpoint

Applies to v10.0+. Will apply to all versions on May 25, 2021.

The DELETE /{page-id}/tabs endpoint that was deprecated in v8.0 has been reinstated in v10.0 and will be reinstated in all versions on May 25, 2021.


Threat Exchange

Deletion of expired data

Will apply to all versions on May 25, 2021.

Data uploaded to ThreatExchange with a non-zero expire_time will be permanently deleted at the expiration time indicated. If you wish to delete data that is no longer valid, set the expired_on field to the current time to have the data deleted immediately.

Additionally, all non-Facebook ThreatDescriptors will be permanently deleted once they reach the expiration date set by the creator. If your application currently has expired ThreatDescriptors that you don’t want deleted, you must extend the expiration date or set it to ‘0’ to ensure that the data never expires.


URL

Ads Insights API

Updated date_preset parameter

Applies to v10.0+.

  • The lifetime parameter (date_preset=lifetime) is disabled and replaced with date_preset=maximum, which can be used to retrieve a maximum of 37 months of data. The API will return an error when requests contain date ranges beyond the 37-month window.
  • For v9.0 and lower, there will be no change in functionality until May 25, 2021. At that time, date_preset=maximum will be enabled and any lifetime calls will default to maximum and return only 37 months of data.

Business

Easing of Previous Endpoint Access Restrictions

Applies to 10+.
