How to Fix #200 Insufficient permission Error

This is one of the common errors on PostBoost and it is an error that has to do with permissions. Posting to Facebook groups require some permissions set by the user posting and the Facebook group admin.

#200 Insufficient permission is caused by one of the following with solutions;

If the group admin does not permit its group members to post to groups, sending a post with PostBoost to such group will pop up with #200 Insufficient permission error. There is nothing you can do to post to such group.

2. You did not set the right permission when authenticating your app.

If you fail to set the app permission to PUBLIC while authenticating, you will likely encounter #200 Insufficient permission error because the app does not have enough permission to post to the groups.
