Facebook Fan Pages Feed operation requires an upgraded connector to access Facebook sites designed with New Pages Experience.

The Qlik Facebook Fan Pages Feed operation is great for harvesting Facebook posts designed with Facebook Classic Pages.  Recently, Facebook introduces a new page design called New Pages Experience.  Many users are adopting the new pages including my client.  Query against the new pages using Qlik Facebook Fan Pages Feed operation will result in the following error:

The new pages requires a page access token.  The regular user access token is invalid.

Would be nice to have future release of Qlik connector to include page access token to access the new pages.

The latest release of Qlik Web Connectors (June 2021 Patch 1) deprecates this connector so I wouldn't hold out much hope of them updating this... 

Qlik Facebook Fan Pages Connector
Deprecated - this connector will be removed in a future version and some of the tables will likely
stop working in November 2021 due to deprecation of the API version used.

From here.

Doesn't make sense to deprecate something without a suitable replacement.  When deprecated, how else to get the Facebook feed?  I hope there's something in Qlik Web Connectors to give users some compelling reasons to continue using it without going to the Facebook Graph API workaround.
