How to connect your social media accounts

You can connect these social networks (and profile types) in Post Planner:

  • Facebook: pages and groups (must be administered by you)

  • Instagram: business accounts (must be linked to your connected FB pages)

  • LinkedIn: profiles and pages

  • Pinterest: any account

  • Twitter: any account

  • TikTok: personal accounts

To connect a social network, go to Settings > Social Networks and click "Connect" on the relevant row.

Once you click "Connect", please accept/allow ALL permissions that Post Planner asks for. We request the minimum permissions we need to make the app work for you.

Here are specific instructions for connecting each network:

Facebook

  • Click "Connect" on Facebook row

  • Accept/allow ALL permissions

  • Connect ALL pages and groups

    • If you connect only a subset of your pages/groups, your connection for FB and IG will likely fail

    • Please connect ALL your pages/groups and then activate (add a green checkmark to) only the ones you want to use Post Planner to post to

  • Post Planner will pull in all the FB pages and groups your connected FB personal profile is an admin of

  • Post Planner will also display the profile pic of the connected FB personal profile.

    • You will NOT be able to activate your personal profile for posting. Facebook does not allow apps like Post Planner to post to personal profiles.

    • We display your FB profile pic to help you see which pages and groups are linked to each FB personal profile you connect in Post Planner (you can connect as many FB accounts/profiles as you need)

  • NOTE: for group posting, you must explicitly add the Post Planner app to your groups

  • NOTE: for group posting, you can choose to post as yourself (your FB profile) or as one of your pages. You will be prompted to choose when you activate the group

How to activate and deactivate your connected social profiles

Once you have your social networks all connected, it's super easy to activate and deactivate your connected profiles, pages and groups.

You just click them.

  • Active profiles = green circular border + green checkmark

  • Inactive profiles = dimmed and no green border or checkmark

Keep in mind: order to deactivate an active profile, you must delete all its scheduled posts first.

You're all set!
