Facebook has recently tightened user privacy and security, including changes to their API policies. Below, we've collected and answered the most common questions from our users.

How does BuzzSumo use Facebook's APIs?

BuzzSumo does not crawl personal Facebook posts, profiles or comments. 

The platform does rely on the publicly available Facebook Pages API to help track and analyze the most engaging public posts from Business pages.

What does this mean for me?

As part of the new policy, Facebook requires developers, like BuzzSumo, to submit our use of their APIs to be approved. We are currently in this process and expected to be completed shortly. 

There are no immediate changes to any of the services we provide to our customers. We’re working with Facebook on meeting these new standards, and we’ll keep you informed during the approval process. 

However, if you have any questions or would like to discuss this further, please contact our Support team.
