You are trying to publish posts into a Facebook Group or Page and got an ‘error’ message. Occasionally, errors can occur during publishing. We know how annoying it is, and we are always working hard to avoid any problems from our side.

Unfortunately, some errors don’t come from our platform. To help bring you some clarity and help you try and solve it, we have prepared a collection of the most common Facebook errors so that you can find out where the problem is and follow our recommendations.

1

Facebook error: (#120) Uncaught OAuthException: Invalid album id

Why is it happening?

Sometimes this error can occur when publishing a photo to a group as user with a question mark with a message of non-trivial length. (This error might happen with some emojis too).

We recommend:

Remove the question mark from the post to succeed.

________

2

Facebook error: (# 200) Requires either publish_to_groups permission and app being installed in the group, or manage_pages and publish_pages as an admin with sufficient administrative permission (code 200, subcode null)

Why is it happening?

The user who created the post or who wants to post to the Facebook group does not have permission to do that.

We recommend:

  1. Make sure you are the group administrator.

  2. Reconnect to Facebook and make sure you accept all permissions.

  3. Connect your Facebook Group.

  4. Please try to publish again.

________

3

Facebook error: Your access token has expired or has been invalidated

Why is it happening?

Your token is invalid or expired.

We recommend:

Reconnect to Facebook to renew the token – accept all permissions and try to publish again after renewal.

________

4

Facebook error: Received Facebook error response of type OAuthException: An unexpected error has occurred. Please retry your request later. (code 2, subcode null)

Why is it happening?

Unfortunately, we do not know the cause of this unexpected error.

We recommend:

This may be just a temporary error. On the FB page check whether the post was actually posted or not – it may happen that the post was posted a minute later than expected, even though the initial attempt was unsuccessful. However, if your post hasn’t been posted, try to schedule it and repost it later.

________

5

Facebook error: code 368, subcode 1390008

Why is it happening?

It looks like you were misusing this feature by posting too many posts in a short period of time. You’ve been blocked from using it. Learn more about blocks in the Help Center.

We recommend:

The page most likely publishes too often, contains content that is too similar (which Facebook understands as “spammy” content), or a combination of both. In these cases, Facebook blocks the page, so that it can’t publish. Try diversifying your posts, avoid posting spam, or post a little less often.

________

6

Facebook error: (# 100) name parameter cannot be longer than 255 bytes. (code 100, subcode null) ‘null – null’

Why is it happening?

This happens when you modify the default link title and it is too long.

We recommend:

Facebook allows you to place a custom link title with a maximum of 255 bytes, which is approximately 255 characters long. To avoid this error, shorten the link title.

________

7

Facebook error: Your message couldn’t be sent because it includes content that other people on Facebook have reported as abusive. (code 368, subcode 1346003)

Why is it happening?

The post might have been reported as abusive by Facebook users and therefore could not be published.

We recommend:

Avoid posting any kind of content that may be or be considered offensive to other users. Try adapting your content and be respectful of others.

________

8

Facebook error: Received Facebook error response of type OAuthException: Invalid parameter (code 100, subcode 2061006)

Why is it happening?

It usually happens when your URL is not in the correct format, or due to an invalid link or a URL with an error.

We recommend:

Check the field with the pasted URL address and correct it by pasting it again. Then try again.

You can also verify the fact that your link is correct if you can see the correct preview.

________

9

Facebook error: Permissions error (code 200, subcode 1609008)

Why is it happening?

This happens when you are trying to post a link to Facebook in your post.

We recommend:

You are not allowed to post links to Facebook Event, Admin posts in Facebook Group, Facebook Profile posts (someone’s personal post). Remove the link from your post and try publishing again.

________

10

Facebook error: Received Facebook error response of type OAuthException: Service temporarily unavailable (code 2, subcode 1609010)

Why is it happening?

Communication via Facebook API was temporarily unavailable, therefore it was not possible to process the publication at this time.

We recommend:

On the Facebook page, check if the post was actually posted or not – it may happen that the post was published a minute later, even though the initial attempt was unsuccessful. However, if your post hasn’t been posted, try to schedule it and repost it later.

________

11

Facebook error: Received Facebook error response of type OAuthException: (# 32) Page request limit reached (code 32, subcode null)

Why is it happening?

Your page has reached its API call limit. It is based on the number of people active daily (DAP) – the higher the DAP of your website, the higher the bid threshold.

We recommend:

Once the threshold is reached, the page is blocked by Facebook and the only way to fix this is to wait for the page to unlock again.

________

12

Facebook error: Received Facebook error response of type OAuthException: Service temporarily unavailable (code 2, subcode 1363047)

Why is it happening?

Communication via Facebook API was temporarily unavailable, so it was not possible to process the publication at this time.

We recommend:

On the FB page, check if the post was actually posted or not- it may happen that the post was published a minute later, even though the initial attempt was unsuccessful. However, if your post hasn’t been posted, try to schedule it and repost it later.

________

13

Facebook error: (# 200) Insufficient permission to post to group (code 200, subcode null)

Why is it happening?

The user who created the post or who wants to post to the Facebook group does not have sufficient permissions to do that.

We recommend:

  1. Make sure you are the group administrator.

  2. Reconnect to Facebook and make sure you accept all permissions.

  3. Please try to publish again.

________

14

Facebook error: Received Facebook error response of type OAuthException: Invalid parameter (code 100, subcode 1349125)

Why is it happening?

This is an invalid parameter error. It means that something is wrong with the content (text, image, link, …) – there are some gaps (e.g. no text – empty post), or some other type of error (e.g. the image weighs too much because it has an extremely high resolution, the URL is in the wrong format…), etc.

We recommend:

Check the content (text, URL, image) and correct any invalid parameters. Then try again. You may need to verify or change your text, image, link, or more. The error can also occur due to the fact that your image/video might be too heavy, so you may have to change them.

________

15

Facebook error: An unknown error occurred

Why is it happening?

Unfortunately, we aren’t sure about what may be causing this error.

We recommend:

Because we have no further information on the source of this error, there’s nothing we can do or suggest to help you solve it. Please, try again later.

________

16

Facebook error: Please reduce the amount of data you’re asking for, then retry your request (code 1, subcode null)

Why is it happening?

It can happen with Facebook pages that are not very active when they try to publish “heavy” posts (with text + link + image + person or page tag etc.).

We recommend:

The solution may be to remove the mention of the other page in the post. If possible, skip other parts of your content (image, link) and then try to publish again.

________

17

Facebook error: Error validating access token: The user is enrolled in a blocking, logged-in checkpoint (code 190, subcode 490)

Why is it happening?

This error can occur when your account is temporarily flagged by Facebook for security or privacy reasons – this could include suspicious login, inappropriate content, breach of terms, etc.

We recommend:

  1. clear cache and cookies

  2. log in to your Facebook profile (or Facebook Business Manager)

  3. answer security questions when logging in, when asked
