How To Connect To Facebook
Navigate to Settings > Social Profiles to authenticate as many accounts as you want to.
1. Authorize CoSchedule to Facebook.
Be sure you are logged into your Facebook Profile before beginning. You will need to authorize your profile first before you can connect your Facebook Pages.
To begin the process, click on Connect a Social Profile. A pop-up will appear asking for authorization. Follow the prompts and make the connection to your profile.
2. Connect your pages and groups.
To connect your Facebook Page or Facebook Group, repeat the above step, but click on Connect a Facebook Page or Connect a Facebook Group.
The next window lists all of the Facebook Pages or Facebook Groups your profile is an admin of. Click the Connect button and the page or group will be connected when the button shows "✓Connected."
Creating a message for Facebook is close to the same as creating messages for the other social networks.
Manage Your Facebook Privacy Settings
You may wish to have your CoSchedule posts published on your Facebook profile be readable by the public. However, Facebook's default settings are to have content sent by apps to be readable by your friends only. This is easily changed in your Facebook account.
1. Access your Facebook settings area.
In your Facebook account, click on the Down Arrow icon in the upper right corner. Then click on Settings in the menu that drops down.
2. Click on the Apps area in Facebook.
You will see a menu on the left side of your screen. Click on Apps to access the settings for all connected applications in your Facebook account.
3. Change the privacy settings for CoSchedule.
You will see a list of all of the applications connected to your Facebook account. Find CoSchedule. It will default to "Friends", meaning anything you publish to your profile through CoSchedule, will only be seen by your friends and not the public.
Click on Edit Settings at the right side of CoSchedule's listing. You will see a settings window for the CoSchedule App open up, where you can choose to adjust your privacy settings.
Click on the drop box to the right of "App visibility and post audience." Choose Public if you would like anyone to be able to read the posts you publish from CoSchedule, and then click on Save to save your changes.
As soon as you change the settings to Public, your posts will now be readable by anyone. The posts you published before this, however, will still be on the Facebook default "Friends" setting. You would need to change those manually on a post-by-post basis if you would like them available to the public. You can change these settings at any time.
Posting To Facebook Groups
You can publish to Facebook Groups just as you would anywhere else on Facebook. However, you cannot send a message to a Facebook Group using Buffer. Buffer currently has restrictions on who can and cannot post to Facebook Groups.
Facebook automatically creates an album out of all images that you send as an image message. This album will be called "CoSchedule." Facebook handles the appearance of these images on the network differently.
If your image post is a standalone message and not associated with a blog post, it may be grouped together with other image posts sent close together over a short time span. Even though you sent each image individually, it will appear to be a grouped gallery on Facebook on both the news feed and page. This is the same behavior you would get if you uploaded images on Facebook itself, one after another.
If your image post is associated with a blog post, it will be grouped together on your profile with other image posts sent recently.
However, in your news feed (what your followers see), the image posts will be seen as separate posts.
