How Do I Set Up A Stream For A Facebook Page?

This page covers adding a Facebook Page Stream service to your account so you can read and respond to updates like Direct Messages in real time.

Please Note:
When adding a posting profile to Sendible, a streaming profile is automatically added to your dashboard. To add a Facebook Page profile to Sendible, see How Do I Add My Facebook Page To Sendible?

1. To view your Facebook Page streams, go to Engage > Stream.

2. Select a Facebook Page that you want to read and respond to updates in real-time.

3. As a default, when you select a Facebook Page Stream, you'll be on your Facebook Page Home feed.

4.  Here is where you can view the original source on Facebook.

5. Within the real-time stream, you’ll have the ability to delete posts from Facebook.

Please Note:
The post you have deleted will still appear within the Outbox > Sent view on Sendible. Facebook is the only social site at the moment that allows third-party platforms to delete posts from their platform via their API.

6. You have the ability to like comments.
