Importing Facebook and Twitter Data

After you have integrated your social media activities you are ready to setup Twitter and Facebook so social activities can be tracked and scored.


Twitter and Facebook data imports must be setup in the same user that setup the social media credentials. Often one account has multiple users with separate ROI logins, so it's important to remember which user owns the social credentials for the organization. For example, AJ+MF Co. has two ROI users setup: aj@ajmf.com and mf@ajmf.com. If Facebook credentials are setup under aj@ajmf.com, the Facebook data import must also be setup in aj@ajmf.com ROI account. If the Twitter credentials are setup under mf@ajmf.com, the Twitter data import must also be setup in mf@ajmf.com ROI account. One user can also setup both Twitter and Facebook credentials and imports.


Multiple Twitter Accounts

If one company has multiple Twitter accounts then those must be setup under separate users. There can only be one Twitter account setup per user. For example, if AJ+MF Co. has two Twitter accounts that need to be tracked, one account needs to be setup under aj@ajmf.com and the other under mf@ajmf.com.


Multiple Facebook Pages

Facebook allows users to create Pages for business and creative endeavors to manage from a personal Facebook profile account. For example, if AJ+MF Co. has a personal Facebook profile account, but three creative Pages within that account, all of the Pages can be tracked under the same user such as aj@ajmf.com, assuming aj@ajmf.com owns the Facebook profile credentials.


Multiple Facebook Profiles

If there are multiple Facebook personal profiles for one company (not Pages), and both have creative Pages within the profiles related to AJ+MF Co., those Facebook profiles must be setup under separate ROI users because one user can own one set of Facebook credentials. For example, aj@ajmf.com must setup the credentials and imports for the AJ+MF Co. Parts and Services Facebook profile under her user, while mf@ajmf.com must setup the credentials and imports for the AJ+MF Co. Contracts and Leasing Facebook profile under his user. For this example, the Parts and Services department has different Facebook Pages than the Contracts and Leasing department at AJ+MF Co.

Step 3: Facebook

When importing Facebook data select from the Page ID drop down. If there are multiple Facebook Pages that need to be tracked for one Facebook account, the user who setup the Facebook credentials for that account must create separate imports under their user and then select each Facebook Page individually from the Page ID drop down. In Step 2 you must select an hourly import schedule and place the import In Progress. Lastly, enter a name, description and folder.
