FACEBOOK, special requirement from Facebook to have auto update working on the long term.

As you know Pix-Star has this great feature that once you've imported pictures from an external provider then your albums get AUTOMATICALLY updated by our system a few times a day. You have nothing to do, new pictures you put there automatically arrive inside your Pix-Star.


But Facebook is a bit different here... Since this year they require that for this auto update to be accepted by their system the user (you) log into our web site (us, www.pix-star.com) at least once every 2 months.

if you don't then after 2 months the auto update requests we send get rejected.

so if you want your FACEBOOK albums to be auto updated by us make sure every 2 months (at least) you log into your pix-star.com account and also we suggest that you go again to the "import external pictures" web page and just her click on the Facebook icon and just log in till you see your list of Facebook albums.

that's it.

It will guaranty we can continue auto-updating Facebook albums for you.

We are very sorry about this new requirement from Facebook but it has to be like this since they don't accept any other solution. No negotiation is possible...

None of the other providers we support have this requirement and it's a much more simple for us and you, but Facebook.. is Facebook!

Enjoy your Pix-Star!
