Setting Up Syndication to Facebook

With Facebook syndication, publishers can easily set up a feed that automatically publishes selected videos in the Backlot CMS to a user's Facebook page.

In Backlot:

  1. Go to the Publish tab, then subtab External Publishing.
  2. Select Facebook and click New to create a new feed.
  3. Log in to your Facebook account and grant the requested permissions.
  4. In Backlot select the Facebook destination page.
    Note: Previously it was possible to publish videos also to a user's Facebook timeline, events, and groups. However, Facebook has recently deprecated the support for these destination types.
  5. Then, in Select Content select All content to syndicate all videos to Facebook or select Add Labels to choose specific labels. All uploaded videos will be public unless you make them private in Facebook.
