Summary: Facebook has recently announced it will be shutting off its API access on August 1st for automating posts into its ecosystem. For a large number of users this means it will be much more difficult to crosspost or syndicate their content into the platform. As a result, this week David Shanske and I discuss the good and the bad of this move as well as some general thoughts around the ideas of syndicating content from one site to another.
David also discusses plans he’s got for changes to both the Bridgy Publish Plugin and the Syndication Links Plugin.

Mixed feelings about the topic. This and the upcomming gdpr lets me question myself again if I should syndicate and backfeed in the future in general.
BTW: The way you pronounce @pfefferle‘s name in english sounds awesome 🙂
