Connect or Disconnect Facebook

Integrate Facebook with Mailchimp to add a signup form to your Facebook Page and auto-post to your Facebook timeline. If you've added an Instagram account to your Facebook Page, you can also access your Instagram photos in our Content Manager and auto-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 access Instagram images in the content manager or auto-post to your Instagram feed, you’ll need to add Instagram to your Facebook Page and convert it into an Instagram business account. To learn how, check out Add an Instagram Account to Your Facebook Page.
