Edit Social Media Service

This dialog displays when you click the edit icon for a supported service in the Social Media Services dialog. Use this dialog to view, enter, or edit the values required to register CommonSpot with a social media platform. Values entered or displayed here are generated by each service. See the overview of Social Media and specific instructions on Integrating Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Note: The application tokens entered in this dialog expire over time and require re-authorization. CommonSpot allows admin-level users to automatically reauthorize access and provides a notification option for others. See Invalid Access Token.

Once you save valid values in this dialog, you can set up channels (accounts) for each service, schedule postings, create and manage rules, and monitor comments and updates through the Social Media section of My CommonSpot. (See the CommonSpot Content Contributor's Reference.) Social media managers must have Social Media admin rights in Site General Security.

Click Cancel to exit without saving, or click Save to keep your settings and update registration status. The service displays as registered in the Social Media Services dialog and sets the registration flag to enabled for any channels defined for this service.

The next step is creating individual social media channels.
