Manage Social Media Accounts

This article will describe how to manage your AlertSense profile's social media accounts.

Updating Current Social Media Accounts

  • From the drawer, click Manage Social Media.
  • Any social media accounts that have been set up will appear in this section.

Note: Accounts that need to be re-authorized (Facebook only) will display in red. A link is provided to re-login to each account to validate permission to post.

  • If necessary, you can also delete accounts from the Social Media Accounts by clicking the Delete link.

Warning: Be sure to select the PAGES that you have access to with your Facebook login so alerts will not be posted to your personal account.

  • To authorize and associate a new Facebook account, click the Add button next to Facebook under Account Type.
  • Once you click Add, a pop-up will appear prompting you to login to Facebook.

Note: If you do not see this pop-up, be sure you have pop ups enabled for this page.

  • Follow the prompts to select the page you want to authorize AlertSense to post to.
  • Manage the actions that AlertSense will be allowed to do with your Facebook page by using the toggle button to enable or decline specific options.

Note: AlertSense may not work properly if you turn off these actions.
