Facebook allows you to create a post in multiple languages, which is then displayed to users in their preferred language. Technically, however, this is a single post for Facebook. If you still want to aggregate all languages used in your post, for example because you have separate social walls for each language, you need to setup a Facebook Connection for each language.

In this article you can learn everything you need to know about setting up a Facebook Connection on contentfry. In this article we jump directly to setting up your Facebook Page.

Important note: Only use this setup if you use the multiple language feature to post on Facebook as explained here. Don't use this setup if you create different posts for each language with language targeting.

  1. Click on Owned Page in the header of the Popup.

  2. Select the page you want to connect from the drop down menu.

  3. Choose what type of posts you want to display.

  4. Here comes the important step for you. Setting the "Locale" or language for your first Facebook Connection. We recommend to choose "Default" for the first Connection.

  5. Select your moderation setting. To finish the setup, click on "Create".

You have now created your first Facebook Page Connection with the locale Setting default. This connection will aggregate the posts in the language that you set as default when publishing a post.

Before your go on to your next Connection, we recommend that you rename the first Connection so you can tell them apart later.

6. Click on the settings Icon behind the Connection.

7. The dialog box of the selected Connection will open. You can now rename the Connection. We recommend adding the language to the name, so that you know exactly which connection has which setting. Click on «update» when you've finished editing.

Now repeat Step 1 to 7 for each language you post in. When you're finished you'll see a list of your added Facebook Pages with each locale/language in the Connection panel.
