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 “Register” button below the "Facebook" section.

 

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.

 

After logging in successfully, you will be shown the following message. Notice that the red cross under the "Facebook" section has been replaced by a green check mark.

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.
