Facebook Groups

Getting Started with Facebook

Facebook Groups modules allow you to monitor, publish or update posts, photos and videos in a selected Facebook Group.

Prerequisites

  • A Facebook account
  • The Integromat app installed on the Facebook Group

In order to use Facebook Groups with Integromat, it is necessary to have a Facebook account and the Integromat app installed on the desired Facebook group. If you do not have a Facebook account, you can create one at Facebook.

Module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Integromat scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!
