I can't connect to my social profiles
How to resolve any issues with connecting to your social media profiles.
1) Make sure that you're logged into the appropriate social media profile on your browser. ContentCal will connect to whichever account you are currently logged in as.
Top tip: If you're having trouble connecting to Instagram, the above point 1 is most likely the reason why. Please head to instagram.com to login to the desired account before restarting the connection process.
2) If you're trying to connect to a Facebook Page, make sure you are an 'Admin' of the Page. You can check this by going to the Page within Facebook, selecting 'Settings' and then 'Page roles'.
Warning: We cannot connect to Facebook Profiles, only Pages or Groups
3) If you're trying to connect to an Instagram Business profile, make sure you are an 'Admin' of the Facebook Page that is linked to this Instagram account.
4) Try connecting through an incognito tab - you will be prompted for your login details to ensure you are connected to the correct account.
5) Try clearing your cookies
6) For Facebook, Instagram Business profiles, and LinkedIn, it's possible that you may not have given ContentCal all the necessary permissions to access your account. Skip to the relevant section below to resolve permission issues with LinkedIn and Facebook.
7) If you have having trouble connecting to a Google My Business Location, please check that your Location is verified and that you are either Primary Owner, Owner, or a Manager of this Location.
