Linking your Facebook account with Yext allows you to update your Facebook business information, manage your reviews, and create social posts.
Note: If you are linking to an existing Facebook page, you need to verify your Facebook account before it can be linked with Yext. To do this, visit Facebook’s Identify Confirmation page and follow the instructions to verify your account. You will also need to turn on two-factor authentication and Location Services. For full instructions, see Facebook’s How do I get authorized to publish on my Page? article.
