Connect Your Social Accounts

The Content Marketing Platform (CMP) currently supports the following social accounts:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • LinkedIn
  • YouTube
  • Tumblr
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest

Let's get started

Step 1: Make sure that any of the social networks you plan on connecting to are not logged into on your computer. 

Step 2: Navigate to the Social Account authentication page in CMP

For Facebook Integrations: Your user credentials must be the admin of a page. When posting assets to Facebook, these assets will only post to a page. These will not post to a personal page.

For LinkedIn Integrations: Your user credentials must be the admin of a company page. When posting assets to LinkedIn, these assets will only post to a company page. These will not post to a personal page.

For Twitter Integrations: Posting assets to Twitter will post to a Twitter feed regardless of whether or not the account is a personal account or a company account.

For Instagram Integrations: The CMP cannot publish directly to Instagram due to restrictions on the the side of the Gram'. So, the CMP will email you a perfectly formatted image that you can post directly to Instagram from your browser or mobile device.

For YouTube Integrations: Autenticate your YouTube Accounts, select your Channels, and the CMP will automatically pull all of your existing videos into the CMP so that you can publish them to your blogs or share them out to their social networks. 

Once Channels with videos has been added, go to My Assets and you will see a new tab on the left column called YouTube. Clicking that tab will take you to a list of the Channels, from there you can click in to see a Gallery of your YouTube videos. Clicking a video will bring up the Preview Pane, where you can see:
 
* The Video Title
* Play the YouTube Video
* Stats on the Video including Original Publish Date, Views, Likes, Dislikes, Favorites, and # of Comments
* Whether the Video is Public, Private, Unlisted, or Draft
* Click “Video Information” and see the Original Publish Date, Definition, Link to the Video, and the Embed Code

For Tumblr Integrations: First go to your settings page and auth your Tumblr blogs. Now, when you create a social post, you can select Tumblr as your distribution channel. When you select your channel, you can then add an image. You can also make your single image a link post. 

FYI: Tumblr does not allow link posts on galleries of images, so your link will be removed if you try to publish.  Don’t worry, article posts and video posts are coming soon.
