Sharing with Facebook broken


I can no longer use the Share Function along with Facebook. All attempts to authorize Facebook every time fail with security error. The German error message roughly translates as:

Facebook has detected that NewsBlur does not use a secure connetion to transfer information. NewsBlur has to update its security settings before you can use Facebook to authenticate.

I got this error on the Website, iPad and iPhone respectively.

In addition, the Facebook button is gone from the website, I only see Twitter there.

Any insights?


It’s probably because of the recent changes over the Facebook’s side. They removed auto sharing capabilities for personal accounts. Only Pages can use that now. I believe that’s why Samuel removed the button.
