To preserve your privacy, Facebook recently started enforcing a policy that prevents third-party apps from posting directly on personal-profile timelines. Previously, Facebook granted apps access to publish posts to Facebook as the logged-in user. Facebook's update gives users more control over what appears on their personal pages- however, by doing so, our ability to post to your timeline has been restricted.

These changes effect Lucidpress's ability to automatically post your documents to your timeline when you share via our platform. Although Facebook has restricted posting on personal timelines, Facebook still allows for third-party applications to post to groups and pages.
