Here is a quick video tutorial to show you how to add your social accounts to RecurPost.
Please note that you may be asked to grant RecurPost some permissions in order to take action on your behalf on your social accounts. Make sure to grant those permissions.
We support the following social platforms:
- Facebook Page
- Facebook Group
- Facebook Profile
- LinkedIn Profile
- LinkedIn Company Page
- Twitter Profile
- Instagram Personal Profile (for Creator account and to post on IG Story)
- Instagram Business Profile (for Non-Creator account)
- Google My Business
How to add a Facebook Page
Adding a Facebook Page is also a simple process.
However, if you want to give us an access to only a subset of your pages, then you need to be careful.
This video shows you exactly how it works and how to change permissions from Business Integrations settings on Facebook.
How to add a Facebook Group
Adding a Facebook Group is not as straightforward as a Facebook Page.
You have to be the admin of the group you want to add, or the admin must have given permissions for the group members to post.
Facebook wants you to install the app you want to approve on your Facebook Group.
RecurPost has been approved by Facebook and thus the app is available on the Facebook app store and you can install it from there.
This video shows you how to do that step by step.
How to add Facebook Profile
Check out the video here on how you can add your Facebook Profile. Please note that posting on FB Profile works via push notification and it is not a direct posting. This is a limitation from Facebook’s end.
How to add a LinkedIn Profile
Adding a LinkedIn profile is a straightforward process as well. You simply click on add, type your username and password and you are good to go.

How to add a LinkedIn Company
The difference between a LinkedIn profile and a company is that one LinkedIn profile can have multiple companies inside it. When you sign up for LinkedIn, you get a profile. Then you can go on to create multiple company pages. Here are the steps to add a LinkedIn Company (page) to RecurPost.
How to add a Twitter profile
Adding a Twitter profile is a pretty straightforward process.
You just need to have the username and password for the profile you want to add.
We support both profiles, the ones that have two-factor authentication enabled as well as the ones without two-factor authentication.
Here is a video that shows the steps needed to add a Twitter profile.
How to add Instagram Personal Profile
Facebook does not allow posting on Instagram personal profile directly. This is the same for every social media scheduler out there.
We do have a workaround for this limitation, which works via our mobile app.
When it is time to post on your account, we send you a push notification. By clicking on the push notification you will be able to post on your Instagram account.
How to add Instagram Business Profile
Instagram Business profile is different than the personal/creator profile as in this case we support posting there directly.
In order to add an Instagram Business profile, you need to be the admin of the Facebook Page that is connected to the Instagram Business profile that you want to add.
Here is a video on how to add your Instagram Business Account.
How to add a Google Business Profile
Adding a Google Business Profile (previously called Google My Business Location) is also a straightforward process with one exception.
Please note that as of January 2021 Google only allows you to add those locations that have not been marked as chains by them.
There is no standard definition of what is a chain, but when they mark a location as a chain, we will not let you add that to your RecurPost account.
As long as you are a manager (or owner) for the location, it will show up in the list to add it to RecurPost. In this video, we show you how to add your Google Business Profile to RecurPost.
