Resubmit Your Janrain Facebook App By August 1st To Retain Same Access

If you use the Janrain Facebook app to facilitate social authentication and sharing in Luminate Online and TeamRaiser, the app must be reapproved by Facebook by August 1st, 2018. Reapproval will allow you to continue collecting the same level of demographic data from Facebook that you get today. 

Why?  With recent updates to privacy policies, Facebook updated their permissions and App Review process. To continue collecting Facebook data as before, resubmit your Facebook app for review by August 1st. 

What happens if I don't? Your constituents can still use your Facebook social login and sharing setup for Luminate sites, but you'll no longer capture specific data about gender, age, Facebook friends, and profile link.

What do I need to do?  Follow these steps to resubmit your app to Facebook for reapproval:
  1. Log into  
  2. In the upper-right, click My Apps > See All Apps.
  3. Click on an App tile to open the details.
  4. On the left, click App Review. 
  1. Review the information and click Start a Submission.
  2. Select Login Permissions, such as user_gender, to request permission to access the content.  
  3. Follow Facebook instructions here to complete the resubmission for approval.
