Facebook's service recently changed application access of your Facebook account to expire after 2 hours. If you are using the Sparkbooth's "facebook" uploader, this can be an issue if you have to re-authenticate Sparkbooth with your Facebook account every 2 hours. This update will extend the expire date of the access. Since Facebook can change their rules on access, Sparkbooth now shows the expire date and time after you sign in. Some other issues to be aware of:

  • If you are currently signed into Facebook in Sparkbooth, you will need to logout and log back into Facebook to extend the access time
  • If you are using the Commercial custom Facebook App, you will need to provide your App's Secret. You can get that value at your app's detail page at https://developers.facebook.com/apps
  • This change only affect the "facebook" uploader. If you are using the "Guest Facebook" or "Guest Upload Chooser" to upload to Facebook, the expiring access token does not affect you.
