Facebook does no longer allow third-party applications to publish on personal profiles. If you still want to publish on your personal profile, Facebook recommends you to convert your personal profile to a page profile. Follow the instructions here.

Facebook Page or Group

If you select the Facebook Page or the Facebook Group icons, a new popup window will ask you to authorize Nelio Content to publish on your Facebook pages or groups.

If you connected a group, note that Facebook now requires you to install the app of Nelio Content on your Facebook group in order to be able to publish there using Nelio Content. To do this, follow the next steps. Otherwise your messages scheduled to be published on your Facebook group will still fail.

Group admins can locate and install Nelio Content in Facebook by using the Group Integrations interface, which is located in the Group Settings panel of the group’s Facebook page:

Go to Edit Group Settings to be able to install Nelio Content on your group in Facebook.

Then the settings of the group appear. Go to the Apps section and click on Add Apps:

A new dialog appears where you need to search for the Nelio Content app. Just type Nelio Content on the search field and Nelio Content appears in the results. Then click on it:

Search Nelio Content on the search bar and our Nelio Content app will appear.
Search “Nelio Content” on the search bar and our Nelio Content app will appear.

Now confirm that you want to add the Nelio Content app in your Facebook group by clicking on the Add button:
