Facebook Now Requires Page Publishing Authorization by Page Owners

FBtutorial.com — Facebook is requiring people who manage high potential reach Pages to get authorized to publish as their Page. Facebook Page Publishing Authorization is said to be an effort to increase accountability of Facebook Pages.

If you receive a notification from Facebook, you must get authorized by the deadline posted in the notification to continue to publish posts as your Page.

For one of our Facebook pages with high potential reach, we were giving a deadline to complete the new page publishing authorization by August 28th to continue publishing as our page.

Page Administrators who don’t complete the authorizations process before the deadline, will  have their Page’s default setting for “Posting as” and “Liking and commenting as” automatically changed from your Page to your personal profile.

You’ll know if you need to get authorized if you receive a notification from Facebook.
