Connecting Accounts: Video Walkthrough
The following video will provide a walkthrough on the connection process.
Connecting Social Media to SharpSpring
To connect social media accounts, do the following:
Note: If you change your password, you will need to re-establish your social media connection.
Tokens and Reconnecting
Social media connections are based on tokens. Facebook and LinkedIn tokens expire after 60 days. Twitter tokens do not expire. When tokens expire, you will need to reconnect your account.
As a preventative measure, email will go out 7 days before the connection is going to expire. The connections in the Social Media Settings page will also display About to Expire.
Scheduling posts more than 60 days in advance runs the risk that your connection will expire before those posts can be published. SharpSpring recommends only scheduling 60 days out to ensure that all posts you schedule are published.
