One of the two notifications you get as a new user of Pilot Poster is that you have not selected the default application for your account. You can only post to groups with the apps that you have authenticated. And we recommend authenticating as many as possible so you can be switching from time to time.
The list of applications will always be updated by Team Pilot Poster. To ensure safety and avoid ban, we’ll be updating the apps list to give more freshness to posts from our system. So don’t be surprised when you don’t see some apps you’ve authenticated or when you see new apps. We’ll always put YOU first.
It is highly recommended that you add a facebook account first? Here is how to.
How to authenticate and set a default application for your account
