Facebook Post: Message or Link

2 years 7 months ago #10068 by Shine Blue

Joocial posts requests to Facebook as type 'Message'. In order to measure the number of shares of an article (K2 item), one can query 'total_count' of 'link_stat' in Facebook Graph. However since the post is a 'message' it cannot measure any interactions.
If the post on Facebook is of the type 'Link', measuring the 'total_count' is ok.
My question is: how can I post to Facebook as type 'link'? I tried filling in the 'URL' field in the request, however the post to Facebook is still as type 'Message'.
Thanks for helping me out.

Hi, Nice to hear from you, I'd be happy to explain!

Facebook has removed Links in API v2.2: developers.facebook.com/docs/graph-api/reference/v2.6/link
This document refers to a feature that was removed after Graph API v2.2.

At this time, you can only publish Posts or Photos. In the upcoming, Joocial 8.7, we plan to introduce Facebook Instant Articles support.

Best Regards,
