Registering Your Facebook Account with IRM Newsroom



Facebook is one of the distribution channels set up in Newsroom to post your announcements via social media. All you need to do is connect your Facebook account or page to Newsroom for a seamless process, as detailed in the instructions below.

To register your Facebook account with IRM Newsroom, navigate to the "Settings" option under the "IRM Newsroom" module of HQi.


On the right-hand side you will see the below options. Tap the “Login with Facebook” button below the "Facebook" icon.


Next, you will be asked to log into your Facebook account via the following screen. Enter your details and click the "Log In" button to continue.

Note: Make sure to log in using your company profile's login information because Facebook doesn't allow third-party to post to personal profile (linked to a company page) any more.

After logging in, you will be directed to this box that asks What is IRM allowed to do? We recommend that you select Yes on all options so that IRM Newsroom can successfully integrate with your Facebook account.

After clicking Done, click OK on the box that says You've now linked IRM to Facebook.


Notice that the red cross under the "Facebook" section has now been replaced by a green checkmark.

Important: One Facebook user can have personal and business/company accounts associated with their login. This next step makes sure that IRM Newsroom is linked to your correct company account and not your personal profile.


After you have entered your Facebook login details and returned to HQi, hit the "Refresh" button next to "Facebook Targets."


Once this has been selected, you will be given the option to link your personal profile or company page to IRM Newsroom. Pick out the relevant checkbox and click "Update."


You will now see that the "IRM" page sits underneath the "Facebook Targets" and is successfully linked. Remember to update your Distribution Channels to release Announcements to Facebook. 


To enable Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin on Newsroom Distribution Channels, follow the steps below:

Under "IRM Newsroom," tap the "Distribution Channels" tab from the HQi menu.

Tap the main heading under "Type" for the announcement group you would like to set up or amend.

Using the "Website", "Email", "Facebook", "LinkedIn" and "Twitter" tabs, you'll be able to select which channel you would like to change the settings for.

Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter: Here you can toggle between sharing the announcement to the various social media networks.

You can tick the button next to "Yes" or "No" for each of the social networks on each of their specific tabs.


To save changes, hit the "Save" button.

To check the approval process and where you have appointed each of your announcements to be released, you can return to the "Distribution Channels" main page.
