Due to new issues in the Facebook connector, importing facebook pages is no longer supported and Exercises 13-4, 13-5 and 13-6 are no longer valid.

When you follow these exercises, Power Query throws the following error:
DataSource.Error: Facebook: (#10) This endpoint requires the ‘manage_pages’ permission or the ‘Page Public Content Access’ feature. Refer to https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/login-permissions#manage-pages and https://developers.facebook.com/docs/apps/review/feature#reference-PAGES_ACCESS for details.
Details:
DataSourceKind=Facebook
DataSourcePath=https://graph.facebook.com/

Here is the official statement from Microsoft:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/desktop-tutorial-facebook-analytics
which contains the following warning:
“Due to Facebook App permission restrictions, the connector capabilities described in this article are not currently working properly. We’re working with Facebook to return this functionality as soon as possible.”
