Vega can post directly to Facebook pages as a Campaign Action. Each post can contain either a message and a link or a message and an image and can be tracked from within Vega.
Before posting to Facebook, the Facebook integration needs to be set up in the Admin area.
- Select the campaign action 'Post to Facebook'
- Complete the required fields in step 1: Name your Post. Select the date and time if wish to schedule the post.
- Complete the required fields in step 2: Build your Post
- Click the 'Post' when you are ready to post to Facebook. Alternatively, you can 'Save as Draft' to edit your post later.
Post statistics can be viewed by expanding the campaign which will show the five most recent actions. Clicking on the Facebook post action will load the post statistics. Note that you can click 'Show all Actions' to view older posts.
Please fill in at least one post field to post to Facebook
In order to post to Facebook or save a Facebook post as a draft, at least one post field needs to be populated in "2. Build your Post".
Invalid post time
Make sure the date and time you have scheduled your post for is in a valid format – e.g. dd/mm/yyyy and h:mm am/pm. After correcting this try posting again.
Scheduled posts need to be shared between 10 minutes and 6 months from when you create them
Currently, posts can be scheduled within 10 minutes and 6 months of the current date and time. If your schedule is outside of this period you can adjust your post schedule or select the "Now" button to simply post straight away.
Posts containing an image cannot contain a link
Posts can only currently contain either a message and URL/Link or message and image when posting to Facebook. If you have tried to create a post containing both an URL/Link and image, remove either one in order to post to Facebook.
You have already posted this status message
If you see this alert error it means you have tried to post a duplicate message to Facebook and has been rejected by Facebook to avoid spam. Changing your post and trying again will resolve this issue.
Please check post Link/URL is valid
The Link/URL you are trying to post has been flagged as an invalid URL, make sure you can load the URL you are trying to post in your browser. If the URL does not load in your browser then the link is not suitable for Facebook.
Please connect Facebook first
Vega has not been connected to Facebook and can be done so by clicking the button in the alert to be redirected to the integrations section of the Admin dashboard.
