Page moderator can change timeline visibility - Facebook Bug


Description:

It was possible for a page moderator with Facebook Messenger access_token to change timeline visibility of a post by issuing a request to the following graph endpoint after setting proper values.

https://graph.facebook.com/v2.2/<PAGE-ID>_<POST-ID>?access_token=<MESSENGER-ACCESS-TOKEN>&timeline_visibility=hidden&method=post

The GET parameter timeline_visibility can have any of these values: hidden, normal or starred.

According to Page Role specifications, it should not have happened.

Upon successful request, the timeline visibility of the particular post changed into whatever state was passed through the parameter.
