Facebook Completes Rollout Of Developer Alerts

Facebook announced that it completed the rollout of its developer alerts feature earlier this week, and it is now available globally.

The social network announced developer alerts earlier this month, saying at the time that they will be used in the following instances:

  • If apps are using functionality that Facebook is altering or removing, alerts will be issued 90 days, 60 days, and 30 days prior to the changes taking effect, as well as on the day of the event.
  • When the status of app submissions changes, such as when open graph actions are approved.
  • Violations of Facebook’s platform policies and subsequent enforcement, such as relegating offending apps to sandbox mode.
