Adding Tumblr to your Facebook Timeline
In the app:
- Tap the account tab.
- Tap the gear icon.
- Choose "Social Sharing" and follow the directions.
On the web:
- Click "Settings" under the Account menu at the top of the Dashboard, then choose the blog you’d like to update on the right side of the page.
- In the Facebook section, click “Share on Facebook.”
- Click “Sign in with Facebook,” then click “Log in with Facebook.”
- Make sure the sharing settings that now appear below are to your liking.
When creating a new post, just click or tap the Facebook icon on the post form to share it.
Sharing posts to a Facebook Page instead of your personal profile
To share posts to a Facebook Page instead of to your personal profile, first connect Tumblr to Facebook using the steps above. Then go back to your Preferences page on Facebook and select the Page you’d like to post to. After saving the change, your posts will appear on the selected Page instead of on your personal timeline. The Facebook Page must be associated with the Facebook account you've connected to.
Note that you cannot share posts to Facebook Groups at this time.
- If you're having trouble connecting to Facebook, go to facebook.com/editapps.php and click the ‘x’ icon next to the Tumblr app. Then re-add Tumblr to your Facebook Timeline by connecting your account as you did before. If that doesn’t help, make sure you’ve enabled pop-ups on your browser.
- If you notice that not all your posts are showing up on your Newsfeed, note that Facebook only displays a certain number of posts so that there’s less clutter on the feed. Your post may be a victim of their algorithms.
- If you notice that not all your posts are showing up on your Timeline, remember that posting may be delayed at times due to Facebook network issues. Also, make sure the Facebook icon is blue when creating a new post. (If it’s gray, that means you’ve turned off posting to Facebook for that specific post.)
- We can't control how Tumblr content displays on Facebook, including where the content appears on your Facebook profile and which thumbnails get used.
