Thanks Eriol, this is great info to have.
@rowasc @Erioldoesdesign If they have a server to set it up + then it needs to be approved by Facebook. Usually not that complicated, the Uchaguzi-one got approved within a couple of days. But I would suggest we look into the version of the fb-api first, the one we use is pretty old and that might complicate the approval-process...
nice catch. I remember the version was potentially a problem at COMRADES and I don't think we fixed it back then because it wasn't affecting them
