How do I connect a Facebook or Twitter account?

When creating a Social Media Metrics Story, you’ll have the opportunity to connect a Facebook Page and a Twitter account per story.
 

To set up a new Facebook account for a Social Media Metrics Story:

  1. Click the Facebook icon (which will be grey if you haven’t connected one yet).
  2. When you click Connect new Facebook Account, a new browser window will open.
    • Talu will try to connect to the account you are already signed in to or else you can sign into an account.
    • Make sure to sign into the account that has Facebook Insights access to your desired Facebook page. 
  3. You’ll see a couple boxes pop up in Facebook, that ask for a few permissions. Click Okay through these.
    • We can assure you that we won’t post any content to your feed or look at your personal account details but feel free to reach out if you have any concerns.
  4. Then, back in Talu, choose a Facebook page.

Here is a short video that shows you how to do this step-by-step.

 

To set up a new Twitter account for a Social Media metrics Story:

  1. Click the Twitter icon (which will be grey if you haven’t connected one yet).
  2. When you click Connect new Twitter Account, a new browser window will open.
    • Talu will try to connect to the account you are already signed in to or else you can sign into an account. Alternatively, you can sign into the proper account on Twitter, prior to starting this process.
  3. Then, back in Talu, you can choose the desired Twitter account.

 

Once you've completed the above steps, give your story a unique name and create it!
