Are you trying to set it up so your Yola site ties into a group on facebook?

Hi Derrick,

If you would like to link your site to a different Facebook account, please follow these steps:

First, you need to unlink your current Facebook account, here's how:

1. Click on "Settings" up by your name.
2. Click on "Application Settings".
3. Click on "Applications".
4. You will be able to remove Yola.

Once this is done you can now link to your new Facebook account by following these steps:

1. Log into the Facebook account you would like to link to.
2. Go to your website and send another update to Facebook.
3. Accept the request to connect to Facebook.
4. Your Yola site will now stay connected to that Facebook account and you can continue to send updates to it.

The settings would be in your Facebook account. Can you give this a try and let us know if you still have trouble?

Hello there Derrick,

Unfortunately you cannot post it automatically to a group. You would have to manually add your update to your group.

Derrick - are you looking for a way to remove the current Facebook account it's posting to? The steps are above if you need them (you can remove the settings in your Facebook account).

Hi Derrick,

You're correct, our instructions are outdated. I am checking with an engineer who works with the Facebook API's to see what steps we need to follow now. Thanks for your patience as we work through this.

Hi Derrick,

Here are the new steps to disassociate your Yola account with your Facebook account.

Click on "Account"
Select "Application Settings"
Change the "Show" drop down menu to "Authorized"
Locate Yola among your listed applications and click the "x" on the right hand side to remove it.

I have attached a screenshot for your reference.
