With Social Media Connections, you can easily share your posts to Twitter and Facebook as soon as you create them, streamlining your multi-channel communications strategy. Sharing takes place within Posts, but first you’ll set up your accounts in the Social Media Connections module.
Access Social Media Connections from the Modules menu in the left-hand navigation. Click “Create Account,” then select whether you want to add a Facebook or Twitter account.
To connect a Twitter account, log into an authorized account from the popup window.
If prompted, enter the confirmation code that was emailed to you, then authorize the app.
The Twitter account will appear in the module window. Click on the gear icon to set up permissions for users to share to that account.
To authorize a Facebook account for Social Media Connections, you must first log in via the popup, using a personal account that has permission to post on the page(s) you want to connect.
Once logged in, select the checkboxes next to any pages that you want to connect and click Next.
Then, confirm that you will allow Finalsite Connector to:
Show a list of the Pages you manage
Read content posted on the Page
Create and manage content on your Page
You have the option to turn off any of these permissions, but it may prevent posts from sharing correctly.
Once completed, return to the Social Media Connections module and confirm again which pages you intend to authorize.
An account for each page you authorize will then appear in the module window. Click on the gear icon next to each page to set up permissions for users to share to that page.
Note: Be sure to double-check your connections before you add them! If you add a connection by mistake and need to have it removed, please contact our Support team.
