We get it that disconnecting social media profiles can be a major pain, and we're here for you! Sometimes it's just how social media platforms handle security.

Usually, hitting the reconnect button in "Workspace Settings" will do the trick. But, there might be some edge cases where you'll need a more robust solution.

Fear not, we'll guide you through the process and have you back on track in no time! ⏱️

Method 1: "Reconnect" Button πŸ”„

πŸ”’Quick reminder: Before you reconnect, make sure you manage the profile and have the right permission levels on the social media platform itself.
Here's how to verify your permissions for platforms like Facebook or Instagram.

πŸ”ŒDisconnects can happen for various reasons, such as a change of password, security measures, or technical difficulties on the social media platform.

Instagram and Facebook tend to be the platforms with the most frequent disconnects.

πŸ“§ Every time there's a disconnect, you'll get an email from NapoleonCat. When you receive such a message or notice in NapoleonCat, here's what to do:

  1. Cruise on over to Workspace Settings

  2. Click the "Reconnect" button next to the disconnected profile, and follow the on-screen prompts

  1. Hover over the profile and select "Edit":

Method 3: Reset πŸ”Œ

Sometimes, it's best to reset the connection and start fresh.

To do this, you'll need to remove NapoleonCat from Facebook Business Integrations, clear all app data for and, and then reconnect your social media pages from scratch.

While this method may be the longest of the bunch, investing a bit more time now can save you from potential headaches later. πŸ†

πŸ”΄ Just a heads-up: make sure you have 2-factor authentication enabled on your FB account. If not, now's a good time to turn it on.

A handy tip

Here's a cool tip to reduce the chances of your FB profiles getting disconnected: get a teammate(s) to connect the profiles as well.

By having two different people connect a single profile, we'll have two separate authorization tokens, which actually lowers the risk of disconnects
βž• Just have them connect your FB profile as usual, even if it's already connected.
Once everything's all set, you'll see how it looks in your Workspace Settings, with two different people connecting the same profile:
