StreamYard allows you to easily connect your Facebook profiles to your StreamYard account.
How to connect a Facebook Profile:
- First, navigate directly to Facebook.com in a new tab in your browser and log into the Facebook Profile that that you are wanting to connect to StreamYard.
Head to the Destinations page on StreamYard and click Add a destination.
Click on Facebook profile.
- Click on "Continue as (your Facebook profile name)".
Select your audience. We recommend setting this to public if you’d like anyone to be able to see your stream, and for you to see comments in the studio. Click Done.
- Configure the permissions. If you make any changes here, be sure to grant access for ALL requested permissions for each of the pages/groups you want to use on StreamYard as well. Click Continue.
- Click on your Facebook profile to connect it.
You’ll only need to do steps #6-8 when you add a Facebook destination for the first time, or if you remove the StreamYard app from your Facebook account. This may be necessary if you need to reauthorize Facebook.
Why is the wrong Facebook Profile appearing for me to choose?
When connecting to Facebook, StreamYard will automatically connect to the profile that you are currently logged into your browser with. If you are seeing the wrong profile, try navigating directly to Facebook.com, logging out of your current profile and logging into the correct one there before trying to connect it again in StreamYard. Alternatively, try opening StreamYard an in a private window and connecting the profile there.
Why is StreamYard is saying it lost/will lose connection to my Facebook Profile?
Sometimes StreamYard may lose access to the correct permissions for us to be able to connect to Facebook and access your profile information. If you see that the connection is lost, navigate to your destinations tab, click the three dots on your Facebook destination and click Reconnect. If you still encounter issues, try clicking Remove to remove the destination fully, before adding it back to your account agin.
