Level 10 administrators can connect OU Campus to your school's Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube accounts from Setup.

Connect your OU Campus website with one or more Facebook pages (not accounts). After you link a Facebook page you have the option to post to Facebook when publishing a page. Set default text for Facebook posts in account and site settings.

From Facebook:

You must have a profile to create a Page or help manage one. Pages are places on Facebook where artists, public figures, businesses, brands, organizations and nonprofits can connect with their fans or customers.

Connect a Facebook page to your OU Campus site, as follows:

  1. Navigate to Setup > Facebook.
  2. Click +New.
  3. Type your Facebook credentials.
  4. Authorize the OU Social app to access your profile.
  5. Select which page(s) to connect to the site.
  6. Type a description.
  7. Click the dropdown to select the group that can post to Facebook.
  8. Click Save.

  2. Click the More Actions More Actions menu  menu for the Facebook page.
  3. Click Delete.

Deleting a Facebook page doesn't affect posts on Facebook, but it does remove all record of those posts from the OU Campus database. Deselect the "Enabled" checkbox to disable a page, rather than delete it.


If communication with Facebook fails during a publish, OU Campus turns off the Facebook connection and sends a message to your inbox titled, "Facebook Status Update Failed."

When the password changes for a Facebook account, Facebook revokes all associated keys, including the connection to OU Campus. To fix this, delete the Facebook page(s) from Setup > Facebook and add them again.
