Facebook Hashtags

You may be wondering why TINT doesn’t support Facebook hashtags. This is because Facebook has not released an API for retrieving posts with hashtags for any third-party social aggregation service.

In the past, we were able to pull in hashtags from the V1.0 of the Facebook Graph API. However, that API was deprecated on April 30, 2015.

We have requested to be notified by Facebook if the situation changes. However, until Facebook releases a hashtag API, TINT will not be able to pull in any Facebook hashtags.
