User Posts


Facebook Pages are public forums and therefore if a user, regardless of their profile status being public or private, posts to a page their content will appear on the page and be collected by Crowd Convergence Social.

Facebook privacy settings only apply to posts which users put on their own timeline and on their friend's timelines.
