Connect Your Social Media Profiles
If you connect social media accounts to Social Poster, they will be automatically connected to the Social Analytics tool. Regardless of which tool you start the setup with, both Social Poster and Social Analytics will be available to you.
In Social Analytics, start with connecting a profile by choosing a social media channel and clicking on the ‘Connect’ button.
Once you click on the channel to connect, you will be brought to a configuration wizard.
If it’s the first time you connect your social media profile to Semrush or you revoked access to Semrush Social before, you will need to authorize Semrush to access your account.
If you’re logged into a social media profile and using Semrush in the same browser, the tool will prompt you to continue with your credentials and authorize Semrush right away. Otherwise, you’ll have to log into the social media platform first and authorize Semrush to access your account after that.
*It’s important to note that Semrush does not take any personal information from your social media profiles*
The way we collect data in this tool is by performing a number of API calls to the social media platforms. In order to perform these calls, we need to have a connected account on those platforms. You can revoke this access at any time.
Log into your Facebook account and authorize Semrush to access it. You will skip the access request step if you’ve connected your Facebook account to Semrush Social before.
