Add/Edit Social Media Channel

Access this dialog from Social Media Channels to create a new social media publishing channel for CommonSpot. This dialog displays in edit mode for existing channels.

You must first register CommonSpot with the service supporting this channel. See the administrative overview of Social Media and Integrating Facebook, Integrating Twitter, and Setting Up URL Shortening. Once channels are authorized, social media managers can create, view, and centrally manage channels for which they have permissions through the Social Media dashboard in My CommonSpot.

You must have separate accounts for each channel you create, for each service used. For example, a university creating separate parent, student, and alumni Facebook channels would have separate Facebook accounts and logins for each of these channels.

This release supports all Facebook account types. See or search for "Facebook pages and groups"
