  • The Pinterest integration in Publish is not available on the Free plan. If you're keen to try it out, start a trial of the Pro or Business plan here!
  • It was previously possible to connect Facebook Profiles to Publish. However, Facebook decided to make a number of changes to their platform to improve their ecosystem and prevent spam and misuse. One of these changes included removing the ability for third party apps to post to personal Facebook Profiles on your behalf. This change came into effect on July 26, 2018, and as such, it is no longer possible to connect Facebook Profiles to Publish.
  • Due to API limitations, we are only able to pull Instagram data into Analyze for Business Accounts that have 100 or more followers. Whilst it's technically possible to connect Business Accounts that have fewer than 100 followers, no data will be available. This aligns with Instagram's native behavior.
