She said, “No. Well, she actually said, “Try again.”
And by “she” I’m referring to Facebook. I don’t normally personify web applications, but this is a special case. Many entrepreneurs often confuse their business with their offspring. So I am keeping with the status quo when I say that my child was dumped by Facebook.
Let me explain. Unbeknowst to me, Facebook requires your mobile application to be approved before allowing you to use their Graph API. The Graph API allows third-party apps to integrate deeply with Facebook. Apps can use the Graph API to share rich, structured stories on Facebook. These stories can increase your app’s engagement, distribution, and growth.
Leaflets authenticates users by integrating Third Parties social networks like Facebook and soon to be Linkedin. This allows us to gain basic information about the user in order to create a better experience. Having to submit Leaflets to be approved by Facebook was a surprising delay. But because of the value it brings when creating a community within an app, it becomes a must. Although our app was initially denied due to some confusion on format, this value lights a fire under the characteristic that many entrepreneurs have-
The need to be accepted, approved, and validated.
