    But how can I upload a new animated picture on FB without taking an already existing one?
    Thanks!

  • bob says:

    Facebook page admins can not remove the status once it is posted via this………
    it will show up in “Recent Posts by Others ” and when an admin goes to delete it , it will stay the only way of removing it is to “hide” it…….

    possibly found a glitch?^

    • Arjun says:

      You cannot use this method to post on page. I’ll be posting an article to post the same on Facebook page. As you said, post will be shown in “Recent posts by others”. Yes, sometimes, this happens when we post in our own timeline via an application too.

  • Bikram says:

    (#100) Missing message or attachment

  • Bikram says:

    yeah it can be posted in pages via page access token..working perfectly mate…just one trouble..n am curious to know how to change page tab image to a gif…i know it might lil irritating for you asking again and again..sorry!

    • Arjun says:

    help me

  • Akilan says:

    That is a really great trick, but some more details are required! The User ID should be of the page or of our own profile? Do we need to “use facebook as page” before going into the Graph API Explorer? I have attached the link of my page here.. pls tell me what is the exact User ID for my page! 🙂 – “https://www.facebook.com/MedIcalMirAcle215105481924154”
    Does the Access Token matter in any way? And I think I am getting it wrong with the link of the animated page tab URL. Could you please clarify on it? 😉

    Thank You,
    Akilan!

    • Arjun says:

      Hi Akilan,

      Thanks for your interest! You should provide your own profile ID because you are going to share your animated page tab in your timeline. Next, you don’t need to use Facebook as Page. Your Page ID is: 215105481924154

      An access token matters a lot on Facebook for publishing something or gathering information from a Facebook user. The token is always an encrypted and temporary one. In this trick, you are going to publish something on your timeline via application. So, you need top permit the application to post on your Timeline. This information is provided by an access token.

  • Harsh says:

      Hi Harsh,
      Congratulations on your success! You may just change the picture of your tab and post the same tab using Graph API Explorer. You will be done!

  • makrem says:

    Thank you Arjun, it works 100% but i want to know how to change the pictures without changing the older one and excuse me for bad english

    • Arjun says:

      You can change pictures only by changing the tab. If any such method to change the image without changing the tab is found, I’ll post it on this blog. Stay tuned.

  • Munna says:

    bro i have followed whole process….. bt my problem is it is posting to my page wall via my profile……. & it is not posting as my page……..how to post as my page……???

    • Arjun says:

      Hi Munna,
      To post on page as page, you need to have page’s access token and not yours. To do this you need to open up Graph API Explorer. Open them and hit “Get Access Token’ button. In Extended permissions tab, check on manage_pages.
      Now, with GET as your mode, type /me/accounts. this will display the pages you administrate. Also, each page will contain an access token. Copy and paste it above box in Graph API Explorer.
      Now, change the mode from GET to POST. Type PAGE_ID/feed?. Here, PAGE_ID is your page’s ID – Get that from graph.facebook.com/pageusername.
      Finally as usual, you may copy page tab’s link and go further.

  • Sanjay Adatiya says:

    Hi Arjun…,

    Animation page tab & ‘shared a page with animation pic’ are successfull.
    thanks for that…
    but thare are some problems, i hope u’ll be solve them…

    1st when i clicked on pic animated page tab open instead of page…,
    when people clicked on animation pic only page should be open rather then page tab,
    and it apear that ”via Graph API Explorer”

    2nd, it apear on ‘RECENT POST BY OTHER TAB’ WITH MY OWN ID instead of page id…
    can i Hide a page tab for fans…???

    PLZ ANS ME ASAP…

    THANKS…

    • Arjun says:

      1. That will show up always as you are sharing through the application. To make the users to head to the page instead of the tab, just delete the page tab after posting the animated picture. The post and the picture will be appearing. Do not worry! The picture will animating too.

      2. This means, you have posted using your profile token. You just need page token for posting as your page. To get a page token, Click on Get Access Token and check on options such as manage_pages, publish_actions and publish_stream. Now, with GET as method, type /me/accounts and hit submit.
      This will generate the pages that you administrate and it also shows the access token. Copy and paste the access toke of the page in the top of the Graph API Explorer.
      Now, with POST as method, type /me/feed?.
      Add a new field and in the name field, type as link and in the value field, paste the page tab URL. Now hit Submit and voila! You are done.
