Smore Promoter - Connected Accounts
Smore will never post anything without your immediate permission to do so.
What are connected accounts?
What are permissions?
The list of things that Smore is allowed to do is called "permissions". Facebook defines a wide list of permissions that apps like Smore can request. Twitter has a simpler but similar model.
Smore only asks for the minimal set of permissions that it needs to make Promoter work.
What permissions does Smore need and why?
(Note: this list is subject to change based on updates to Smore Promoter and other features)
- Manage Pages: This allows Promoter to see what Facebook Pages you manage and also allows Smore to post to these pages.
- Publish Stream: This allows Promoter to post on your Timeline.
- User Groups: This allows Promoter to see what Facebook groups you're a member of, and to post in these groups.
- Read/Write permissions: This allows Promoter to tweet on your behalf.
If I give Smore permissions, will Smore be able to read my Facebook feed or my tweets?
- Smore will not be able to read your personal Facebook feed.
- Smore will be able to read posts on your managed pages (Timeline posts, not messages).
- Smore will be able to read your tweets.
However, Smore will never read your tweets or your Facebook posts.
What do you mean by "post" or "tweet on my behalf"?
Smore Promoter (or any other part of Smore) will never post on your behalf, on any service, without your express permission to post that specific post.
I have more questions about permissions and connected accounts.
