Can I schedule posts for Facebook profiles, pages, and groups that belong to other people?

If you serve clients whom ask you to post updates to their Facebook profiles, pages, and/or groups, then please take note of the following. By default your Facebook application can only post updates to the Facebook personal profile that created the application.

Personal Profiles

To schedule updates for another Facebook personal profile you have two options, namely:

a) Log in to developers.facebook.com and navigate to your Facebook application. Click Roles in the sidebar. Add the client's Facebook profile in the Developer section of the application's roles. Navigate to socialoomph.com. Click Networks, Connect Social Account, Facebook in the menu. Click the Authorize button and log in to Facebook when prompted with the client's personal profile account credentials. Grant the requested permissions.

OR

b) Register a new SocialOomph account, create a Facebook application that belongs to the client's Facebook profile, add the client's Facebook profile as a social account of that dedicated SocialOomph account, delegate the management of the Facebook account to your SocialOomph user account, and schedule updates for the profile in your SocialOomph account.

Pages and Groups

To schedule updates for a Facebook page or a Facebook group that belongs to another Facebook user you have two options, namely:

a) Ask the owner to add your personal Facebook profile as an administrator of the page or group. When you add your personal Facebook profile to SocialOomph, the page or group will appear in the list that you can also add as a social account. With this option you do not need to know the password of the other personal profile Facebook account.

b) Use one of the two options listed above under Personal Profiles. If you can post to another person's personal profile, you can also post to the pages and groups where they are an administrator.
