Facebook Sharing Issue: User Opted out of Platform

When sharing a post to Facebook you sometimes get an error User opted out of platform: The action attempted is disallowed, because the user has opted out of Facebook platform.

Facebook Sharing

This happens when you've turned off a feature in Facebook. If this just changed even though you didn't update your preferences, it might be because Facebook added an app to this list.

Here's how to turn Facebook platform back on:
