Facebook has recently changed its policies regarding what apps can do within Facebook.  One of the new changes is that apps are no longer allowed to post to Facebook automatically.  Therefore we will no longer be able to support or auto ad posting to Facebook.  

Work Arounds

If you still want to post your listings onto Facebook there are 2 alternatives you can use.  The first alternative is to use the "Share" button on the property on your website to post the listing to Facebook.  This will get the listing on Facebook however you cannot post directly to business pages using this feature as Facebook has removed support for that as well.  

The final work around is to go on your website and look up the property you want to share.  Then copy the web address of that page and then go on Facebook and paste the link into a post on a business page or personal account.  This will share the link on Facebook so that people can access that property directly.  The images and descriptions will not come over as Facebook will not be able to pick up that information from the link alone.

We will be looking for some ways to improve upon this in the future and will keep you up to date on our new feature.
