Facebook App Review Explained

Facebook has had an App Review process for a few years. While it's been a little tedious to explain why you want specific permissions, it has also generally been smooth sailing. Submit a request, get approval within a few days (or even hours). Done.

That all changed with the Facebook privacy issues earlier this year. Now, they dig deeper and, because of a large queue of submissions, take much, much longer. JFBConnect has been updated to help with the approval process and to improve your chances of getting approved the first time.

Facebook Is Changing Quickly. JFBConnect is Ready.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about Cambridge Analytica and the unauthorized use of user data coming from the Facebook Platform. In response to this, Facebook is rapidly making multiple changes to their platform. JFBConnect integrates with many different social networks, but Facebook is the most used of them all. Because of that, we want to make sure all of our users are aware of the changes we know of, the actions we'll be taking, and how to make sure Facebook integration continues working as expected on your site.

Hi Guys, JomSocial is very happy to announce release of JomSocial Version 4.5.1 Beta 2 - important release with performance improvement and 17+ bug fixes plus some other improvements.We would like to thank you for the positive feedback and bug reports in the 4.5.1 beta 1. In this release, we have addressed the performance issue also and expect more improvements in the upcoming releases.Performance Improvement - From real case study We evaluated fresh installed Jomsocial and also on multiple user site's with 5K+ conversations to understand the issue and plan fixes : Problems and Solutions:Problem: JomSocial ajax init chat loads all conversations at a time. If a user has too many conversions ( like ~ 4k), it causes slow loading and freezing browser. Solution: limit num of conversations at first load ( for now is 15) Problem:JomSocial chat is using ajax long polling that keeps connecting server for scanning new chats on the system. This will help make chat faster. However, some shared hostings limit the number of connections with the server, so website gonna be slow if too many users are online. Solution: Remove ajax long polling, and use simple ajax. Here is the comparison of the performance before and after on user site with 4757 conversationsRelease Changelog Details: Improvements Performance improvement for live chat when more users have chat messages, site loads slowly Group activity not showing for a user Alphabetical sorting in advance search for the Russian language 2. Bug fixes Infinity scroll search hashtag is not working Can't upload on android device JS 4.4.2: New chat message auto-complete does not work on mobile view Sending message with " straight profile cause to appear escaped " in chat JS 4.5.1 hardcoded text Got undefined error after uploading a photo on stream Missing ajax-loader.gif file Group announcement issue error on the JS Member Map + how to hide super user members on the Map. Error filling string COM_COMMUNITY_STREAM_LIKES_SINGULAR Privacy setting for video post doesn't work anymore Group Invite Friends: Selected, Email Sent, but not marked as Invited Infinity scroll is not working after post a status on stream Create Discussion: Upload image window is not responsive for mobile view Filter is working incorrectly after post new status Got PHP notice when open profile page with login Article comments on mobile: Can`t see SEND button Only Friends can Comment on Videos setting doesn't work properly How To Download And Upgrade? Go to your account and download JomSocial 4.5. Unzip downloaded package, and find beta installer. Make sure you are running minimum JomSocial 4.4 or JomSocial 4.5 version Create the backup of your website Create the shadow copy of the site Use the beta installer to manually upgrade shadow copy of your website to JomSocial 4.5.1 Beta 2 from Joomla Extension Manager

NOTE 1: JomSocial 4.5.1 Beta 2 is not a stable version and as such will not be officially supported by us. You are welcome to post eventual bugs and suggestions for improvements, but if you install this version on production site, you are bound to fix all issues yourself.
