Facebook integration comes to BrightLocal

Facebook integration comes to BrightLocal

We’re delighted to announce that we’ve released Facebook integration for the BrightLocal Location Dashboard.

After launching the Location Dashboard in June, we followed it up with Twitter integration and White Label dashboards. This latest update takes our Social Media integration to the next level & allows you to view all your critical social data in one place.

Monitor Facebook with BrightLocal

By integrating Facebook you are able to view critical Facebook page insights.

This means you can monitor the reach of your Facebook posts, measure your engagement with users, and track the amount of likes & clicks you are accumulating.

There is NO additional charge for connecting Facebook or Twitter, and it’s available for users on all Plans.





How to monitor Facebook with your BrightLocal dashboard

You can set-up Facebook integration from within a Location Dashboard.

Simply click on the Clients & Locations tab, select the Location you want and go through to the Location Dashboard.

You’ll now see the ‘Social’ icon in the lefthand navigation strip. This gives you access to both Facebook & Twitter.
