How to get your Facebook App Reviewed Successfully

After the controversies of personal data leak to 3rd parties Facebook got real serious about the privacy standards as a result it became more difficult for Facebook app developers to get their app approved & get them out for the users. Although the approval process has became more complex & it takes some more time & extra efforts than before to get an Facebook app approved but it still can be done if you are not violating any Terms of use of the Facebook API. We do a lot of Facebook integration & was able to get our client’s applications approved without much issues & along the process we have learned some important things to get the Facebook app approved successfully that I am mentioning below

  1. Only request those permissions that your application actually needs & you can explain to the app review team about the actual usage of those permissions inside your application.
  2. Once you have decided the permissions you want to get your app reviewed for create proper screen cast videos that actually demonstrate the use of that permission inside your web or mobile application. For Example : If you are requesting for ads_read permission you should create screen cast of the page which is displaying data to your web or mobile application user being fetched because of that permission.
  3. Give Facebook the test user login details so that Facebook review team can login into your web or mobile application to give it a try on their own. If users of your web or mobile application logs in using your own separate platform credentials you will have to provide it to them as well.
  4. Make sure your web or mobile application which you want to integrate with Facebook API is publicly accessible when you submit your Facebook application for review. If they can’t test it like a any other user of your web or mobile application they will simply reject it.
