Connecting your Facebook page to Buffer Publish

In order to connect a Facebook page to your Buffer Publish account, we'll need to authenticate through your personal Facebook profile that has the Page Admin or Page Editor role on the page you're looking to connect. Learn more about Facebook Page roles here. Whilst we authenticate your Facebook pages through your personal profile, we won't access your personal information or publish content on your profile.

This article contains the following sections:

  1. Connecting your Facebook page
  2. What to do if your Facebook page is not listed

Connecting your Facebook page

  1. We recommend first logging into your Facebook profile that has the required permissions.

    ⚠️ You must log into your Facebook profile that has the Page Admin or Page Editor role on the Page you're looking to connect. Whilst Facebook removed the ability to log in as your page some time ago, it appears that some long-standing Facebook users are still able to do that. If you log into Facebook as your page, this connection process will not work.

  2. In Publish, click Manage Channels at the bottom of the left hand sidebar.

  3. Click Add a New Channel and then click Facebook Page.

  4. Click Continue as [Name].

  5. Click OK. In this step, it's important not to change any of the permissions or uncheck any pages.

  6. Click on the page you'd like to connect. Not seeing your page listed? Please jump here for further guidance.

What to do if your Facebook page is not listed

First, check that your personal Facebook profile has the Page Admin or Page Editor role on that page. Learn more about page roles here.

It's also important to note that it is not possible to connect a Facebook page if you are a Page Admin through inheritance from a parent page. To find out, visit your Facebook page, and find the Page Roles section within settings. If you see yourself listed under a section labeled "Admin (inherited from parent page)", then unfortunately you will not be able to authorize the connection between the Facebook page and Publish.

If you have the correct page role and it's still not listed, it means that Publish does not have the required permissions from Facebook. To resolve this, please follow these reauthorization steps and then try connecting your page again.
