The first step to getting your Social Wall up and running is adding a content source. In this article, we show you how to collect content from Facebook.

Supported Facebook Connections

Click on the Connection Type below to directly jump to the articles for guidance:

💡What about Facebook Hashtags? Facebook doesn't support collecting content from users by hashtag. However, Contentfry can display public posts from users on your page.

Connecting your Facebook Account.

  1. To get started, click on the Facebook icon located in the Connections panel on the right-hand side of the contentfry Dashboard.

2. Once the popup window opens, click on the 'Connect Facebook' button. You will be prompted to log in to your Facebook account and grant us access to your information.

3. After successfully connecting your Facebook account, it will appear in the popup. You are now ready to connect a Facebook Page.

Adding Your Own Facebook Page

1. In the popup window, click on 'Owned Page' in the top tabs. From the drop-down menu, select the Facebook Page which you want to connect.

2. Choose the type of posts you want to collect. You can select from the following options:

  • Collect all content ("page and visitors")

  • Collect only content posted by users ("visitors only")

  • Collect only content from your page ("page only")

3. If you are using the multiple language feature for posting on Facebook (adding different languages to one post), you may want to set the preferred language for the page you're connecting. Learn more about the Locale Setting here.

4. Select your Moderation settings, then click on the 'create' button to set up your Facebook Page and start collecting content.

Adding a Public Facebook Page

1. In the popup window, click on 'Public Page' in the top tabs. Next, enter the page url of the Public Facebook Page you want to connect into the designated field on the right-hand side.

2. Now, follow Steps 2, 3, and 4 outlined above in the "Adding Your Own Page" section.

Updating the Settings of your Facebook Connection

You can always update the settings of your Facebook connection later. To access the settings of an existing connection, click on the settings icon next to the connection.

💡Not happy with the displayed name of the connection? You can change it anytime. Learn how to do this and more in the Managing Your Connections article.
