System Update for Facebook Specification Changes

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

Thank you for purchasing a Sony product.

Certain features will no longer be available when using Facebook in the DPF-WA700 and DPF-W700 digital photo frames after April 30, 2015. This is due to specification changes made by the service provider.

In response to these specification changes we are preparing system update for release in late May. Once it is ready, we will post it on the Drivers and Software pages for the digital photo frames.

Some features will change after the system update in accordance with the specification changes by the service provider. More information will be available on the system update page.

If you are using these features, we apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
