Connect or Disconnect Facebook

Connect Facebook with Mailchimp to publish ads, add a signup form to your Facebook Page, and post to your timeline from Mailchimp. If you've added an Instagram account to your Facebook Page, you can also access your Instagram photos in our Content Studio and post to your feed.

In this article, you'll learn how to connect or disconnect Facebook from your Mailchimp account.

Before You Start

Here are some things to know before you begin this process.

  • To access the features of this integration, you’ll need an active Facebook account that manages at least one Facebook Page. This integration doesn’t add a signup form or post to your personal Facebook profile. Learn more about Facebook Pages.
  • When you set up the integration, you must approve each of Facebook’s permission requests. To change the permissions, first disconnect, then reconnect the integration.
  • To use Instagram with Mailchimp, you’ll need to add an Instagram business account to your Facebook Page. To learn how, check out Add an Instagram Account to Your Facebook Page.
  • If you have trouble with your Facebook connection, check out our guide to troubleshooting the Facebook integration.
  • When you publish a Facebook ad with Mailchimp, we create a Facebook ad account for you that's exclusively associated with one specific Mailchimp account. If you connect additional Mailchimp accounts to the same Facebook account, you won't be able to use them for ads.
