Workflow

Request: the code to send to the API

Send an API request to this endpoint in order to upload a video to the Facebook account of a user:

POST /push/identities/<identity_token>/facebook/video.json

The <identity_token> is obtained whenever one of your users connects using his Facebook account.

This endpoint is deprecated. On August 1, 2018 Facebook has removed the possibility for third-party apps to share to personal profiles. Alternatively you can use our API to upload videos on pages.
