Dear Customers of Open-Xchange,

we would like to notify you about some Facebook API changes which affect the integration between OX App Suite and the Facebook social network. Specifically Facebook has reduced the ability to access the Fetch Contact Data from the Graph API. 

This does not change the ability for OX App Suite to display Facebook content on the portal it does affect the Contacts module.


Due to these new restrictions OX App Suite is no longer able to provide a stable way for users to enhance the address book using the Facebook API. This means that the subscription capability of the OX App Suite Contacts module, from Facebook accounts, will be disabled. Existing content will not be affected.

Open-Xchange is a company that is committed to openness and connectivity to other open platforms. Unfortunately because Facebook has introduced these additional barriers it makes open and stable connectivity impossible and subsequently closing their platform.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
Your Open-Xchange Team
