Nixle: Resolving Facebook Permission Issues


Why is my Nixle agency unable to post to Facebook?

How do I resolve the permissions issue between my organization or business page on Facebook and Nixle?


Recently, Facebook changed how their organization and business pages interact with third-party applications such as Nixle. Changes like this often result in Nixle messages not automatically posting to the Facebook platform due to inadequate Facebook account permissions. To resolve these issues, please follow the steps outlined in this document


This guide follows two separate Facebook layouts. If your business or organization page layout is not consistent with the "Facebook New Page Layout" section below, please proceed to the "Facebook Old Page Layout" section. The steps found under the "Re-syncing Nixle & Facebook" section need to be followed by all users.

Facebook New Page Layout

1. Log into Facebook using the account you typically use to access your agency's page. Navigate to your agency's page by clicking on your agency's name, click on the three dots on the page, and select Page and Tagging Settings

5. Enter the name or email address of the person you would like to add as your agency's Facebook page administrator. This email address must already be associated with a personal Facebook account.

6. Once you've selected Give Access you will be prompted to re-enter your password.

When this is correctly provisioned, the name on the individual's Facebook account will appear (as seen here with "Devi kongara"). If it is just the email, the permissions will not work.
