Engage with fans, followers, and customers on Facebook—where they're already spending time. Now that the Facebook Pages + Zapier integration is updated with many new capabilities, you can post updates, share events, and talk to followers more efficiently.

Fresh video content helps keep your audience interested in your page. Now you can set up Zaps that automatically post videos to your Facebook Page. Try out Zaps that post videos as they are added to your cloud storage tool, so you don't have to upload the videos to Facebook manually.

You can now also stay in-the-know about activity on your Facebook Page without checking your account repeatedly, thanks to Zapier's New Notification Trigger. Create Zaps that funnel new Facebook Pages notifications to your team's Slack channel or your email.

Manage your events easily by setting up Zaps that automatically add new events from your Facebook Page to your other social media accounts, webinar tools, or email marketing apps. That means less copying and pasting the same event info across all of your business tools.

Another improvement to the integration gives Zapier the ability to pull high-resolution images from new Facebook Pages posts. Your Zaps can now pass along those high-quality images from Facebook Pages to other social media apps or marketing tools. That way, you don't have to manually download and upload the images yourself.

What's New with the Facebook Pages + Zapier Integration

New Triggers and New Options for Existing Triggers

  • New Event: Triggers when an event is associated with your Facebook Page.
  • New Notification: Triggers when your Facebook Page receives a notification.
  • Your Zaps using the New Post to Your Timeline or New Post by You Trigger will now pass along full-resolution versions of any photos from the post, so you can use the full-resolution photos in subsequent steps of your Zaps.

New Actions

  • Create Page Video: Uploads a video to your Facebook Page and posts it to the stream.
