|SharpSpring allows you to post to your social media accounts—but only after you connect your social media accounts to SharpSpring.
This article will detail how to connect and delete LinkedIn connections in SharpSpring.
Connecting LinkedIn to SharpSpring
If you are connecting a LinkedIn company page or group, then the username and password associated to that account must have access to that page.
Note: If you change your password, you will need to re-establish your social media connection.
Disconnecting SharpSpring from LinkedIn
If you have already connected LinkedIn, deleted the connection, and would like to re-connect and change your settings, you must first remove SharpSpring as a connected app in LinkedIn. To remove SharpSpring as a connected app in LinkedIn, do the following:
- Log in to LinkedIn.
- In the top-right corner of LinkedIn, click your profile picture.
- In the menu that appears, select Settings & Privacy.
- Click Partners and Services.
- Select Permitted Services.
- Click Change.
- Remove SharpSpring.
Deleting Social Media Accounts
To delete social media accounts from SharpSpring, do the following:
- In the top-right corner of SharpSpring, click User Settings > Settings.
- In left menu, under Features, click Social Media.
- Hover over the social media account that is to be deleted.
- Click the Delete icon to the right of the account.
- Repeat as necessary.
Tokens and Reconnecting
LinkedIn connections are based on tokens. Those tokens expire after 60 days. When they do, 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.
