NextScripts: Social Networks Auto-Poster
Troubles setting up NextScripts on Facebook accou (5 posts)

    With a business account, when I go to FB> Developers> Apps, there is no create apps button or choice. The options whilst in FB do not match up to the instructions. Are the instructions outdated or am I having a problem specific to myself?

    Thanks!

    Hi myersmediagroup.

    Instructions are good, I just setup a new website this morning, and all items was there.

    Could you please send me the screenshot of what you have at the Developers -> Apps Page

    http://developers.facebook.com/apps

    Please send it to the support@nextscripts.com

    Thank you.
    Ludwig.

    The possible answer to your problem:

    'Business' or advertising accounts can't manage apps. Only real user accounts are able to create and manage apps.

    Please login to Facebook as a personal account to be able to create app.

    So this plug-in does not work with Facebook Fan Pages then, correct? Will there be a fix or workaround for this?

    Please don't mix up Facebook Fan Pages and special "Business" or "advertising" accounts.

    THERE IS NO PROBLEM HERE AT ALL. NO WORKAROUNDS NEEDED.

    Plugin does work with profiles, all kind of pages (personal pages, fan pages, business pages, etc), as well as Facebook groups.

    --------
    On completely separate note:

    "Business" and "advertising" accounts (accounts, not pages) are the special types of account registrations on facebook.com. Those accounts can't create apps. This is the limitation, but it does no affect plugin anyhow. You need to create an app from ANY personal account, then you will be able to authorize that app even from the "business" or "advertising" accounts.
