What is it?
Due to Meta policy changes, we are required to manage accounts differently on our platform. Partners and their clients will be required to reconnect Facebook following the steps described here. The timeline to complete this is August 30, 2023.
Why is this important?
To continue syncing information to Facebook in Local SEO, it is necessary to reconnect your account(s).
How does it work?
Step 1 - Click on "Business App Connecting Page" link in the banner at the top of the screen.
Step 2 - The link will lead to Settings → Connect Accounts → Reconnect.
Step 3 - Click "Continue as" account.
Step 4 - After clicking “Continue as” select all pages even if only one or two of the pages is desired for connection as this is a MUST ask from Meta. Then click “Next” as shown below.
Step 5 - After clicking “Next” turn on all as this is required by Meta. Then click “Done” and click “OK” on the next screen.
Step 6 - After clicking "OK" the user will be redirected back to Business App as shown below where the user can select the Facebook page required to connect.
Step 7 - Once successfully connected the banner will no longer be seen in Local SEO.
When is it available?
This update will be released on June 27, 2023 to all Partners with clients that have Local SEO activated.
