Social: Set Up Facebook Connector with Oktopost

 << Set up CNAME for Social Marketing Introduction  Set Up Google+ Connector with Oktopost >>

Facebook is one of several social profiles that can be integrated with the ClickDimensions Social Marketing feature powered by Oktopost.  You may include Facebook Profiles, Facebook Pages, and Facebook Groups and set up these integrations via connectors.  Connecting to these social profiles will allow you to create, schedule, and publish social posts from within your Dynamics environment, as well as track the interactions people have with these posts. 

After setting up the connector, it is required to have a CNAME set up for Social Marketing purposes.  Click here for instructions on how to set this up.

Once your CNAME is set up for Social Marketing, navigate to Settings > ClickDimensions Settings > click Connectors.



A new window will open and show you the current connectors you have set up for this Dynamics environment. Click +ADD to choose a new connector.


A new window will open and show you a menu of current available connectors to set up.  Select from the following options for Facebook:


Facebook Profile: Connect the Facebook Profile of an individual person so that you can create and publish posts directly from Dynamics to the individual's Facebook Profile.

Facebook Page: Connect the Facebook Page of an organization so that posts are created and posted from within Dynamics to the authenticated Facebook Page.

Facebook Group: Connect the Facebook Group so that posts are created and posted from within Dynamics to the Group. All Group members will be able to see the published posts.

If this is the first time you are connecting your social profiles, then you are prompted to include the first name, last name, and email address of the User who will be controlling these social profiles.  You may choose only one User for these details.

NOTE: It is recommended that this User is the person leading these social marketing efforts, as we will be sending communications, including re-authentication messages, to this email address.


Once you have entered in the required information and indicated that you have accepted the Terms and Conditions, click Connect.


You will then be prompted to continue through the authentication process while logged into the intended Facebook account. Click Continue as [NAME].


Click OK.


Click OK.


Once this connection is authenticated, you will see a success message.  You can then click to learn how to post to Facebook using this connector, click to set up another connector, or close the window.


The connectors window will now show the active Facebook connector with the other connectors set up for your Dynamics environment.


You are now ready to create a social post!
