[Publish] How to connect your Facebook Group

Permissions

In order to connect a Facebook Group to your Buffer Publish account, we'll need to authenticate through your personal Facebook Profile that has the Admin role on the Group you're looking to connect. It is not possible to connect Groups that you are only a member of. Learn more about Facebook Group Roles here. Connecting Facebook Groups requires an additional step of adding the Buffer app within your Group settings in Facebook itself.

Please note, all posts published to a Facebook Group will appear as being posted by the Facebook member who connected the Group to Buffer Publish. Learn more about post attribution here.

How to connect (or reconnect) your Facebook Group

Enter your Facebook password and then click Continue. From there, please jump to step 5.

If you're on the Free Plan, click Connect More on the left hand side of your dashboard, followed by Group under Facebook.

If you're on the Pro or Business Plan, click Add a Social Account on the left hand side, followed by Facebook Group from the list of social account options.
