How do I connect to Facebook and Twitter?

Only those users who are assigned the Administrator role will have access to the Admin section of LibraryAware.

The Social Accounts page is where you will manage your organization’s social media (Facebook and Twitter) accounts. This page allows you to post Promotions to Facebook and Twitter directly from your LibraryAware account.  To access this page, select Admin from the top of the LibraryAware page, select Account Management, then click the Social Accounts link.   


Facebook Settings

To Authorize a Facebook Page:

Before you can post to one of your organization’s Facebook pages, you must first authorize Facebook to pull content from your LibraryAware account.  You can authorize as many Facebook pages as you like.  If you have multiple Facebook pages, you will be able to select which page to add your content to when you post an Item to Facebook.

Note: You must already have the permissions to post to your organization’s Facebook page from your own personal Facebook account, before you can authorize LibraryAware to post to Facebook.

  1. Click the Authorize button under the Facebook Settings heading.
  2. A new window will pop up, asking you to log in to Facebook.  Enter your email and password and click the Log In button. Note: This will not give other LibraryAware users access to your personal Facebook account, just to the Facebook pages for which you are an admin.
  3. You will then return to the LibraryAware Social Accounts page, with all of your Facebook pages listed under Currently Authorized Facebook Pages.  
  4. Click the checkbox beside any Facebook pages that you do not want the other users at your organization to post to, and click the Deauthorize Selected Pages button.
  5. If you want to authorize additional Facebook pages under a different login, log out of Facebook before repeating the above steps.

To Deauthorize a Facebook Page:

When you deauthorize a Facebook page, the users at your organization will no longer be able to post to it from LibraryAware.  However, this will not affect messages that previously have been posted from LibraryAware.  

  1. Under Currently Authorized Facebook Pages, click the checkbox beside the page that you want to remove.
  2. Click the Deauthorize Selected Pages button.
  3. This Facebook page will be removed from your LibraryAware account.

To Authorize a Twitter Account:

Before you can post any Twitter messages from LibraryAware, you must first authorize your library’s Twitter account.  To authorize another Twitter account, you must log out of the previous account that you authorized and log into the next Twitter account that you want to authorize.

  1. Click the Authorize button under the Twitter Settings heading.
  2. A new window will pop up, asking if you want to authorize LibraryAware to use your account.  If you are not already logged in to Twitter, enter your Twitter username or email and your password then click the Authorize app button. If you are already logged in to Twitter, click the Authorize app button.
  3. In the Organization Hashtags box enter any hashtags your organization wants to use and click the Save Hashtags button.  These hashtags will appear in all of your organization’s Twitter posts.  All hashtags must include the ‘#’ symbol.  If using more than one hashtag place a space between each one.  
  4. If you want to authorize additional Twitter accounts under a different login, log out of Twitter before repeating the above steps.
