Facebook Crossposting

Facebook Crossposting allows you to stream to multiple Pages at once. You can set up Crossposting on up to 200 Facebook Pages. Before using Crossposting in Switcher Studio, you will need to set it up on Facebook.

Note: Crossposting can only be used with Pages. If you would like to crosspost to a Facebook Group, a workaround is posting to your Page, and then sharing that post to the desired Group.

Setting up Crossposting on Facebook

In order to approve Crossposting for a Facebook Page, you must be a Page Admin. You do not have to be an Admin of the Page you want to crosspost to, but a Page Admin must approve the Crossposting request.

  • Go to Facebook.com

  • Navigate to your Page.

  • In the Manage Page left sidebar, click Settings.

  • Scroll down and click Crossposting.

  • In the box next to Add Page, type the Page name or Facebook URL.

  • Select the Page from the list that appears.

  • Select your preference from the Live Videos options.

  • Click Next.

    • You will have to wait for an Admin of the requested Page to approve your Crossposting request. Facebook provides a link that you can copy and paste to message an Admin directly.

  • Click Done.

    • The page will now be added to the Added Page section.

Note: You can access and share the link with a page admin at any time by going to Page > Settings > Crossposting. In the Pending Crosspost Requests section, click on the link icon.

Using Crossposting in the Switcher Studio App

Once the crossposting relationship has been granted on Facebook, you can use the feature when setting up your stream in Switcher Studio.

  • Tap Facebook in the Outputs tab.

  • Tap the blue arrow next to Facebook.

  • Tap the toggle button next to Crossposting.

    • Once enabled the button will turn orange (as shown below), and a box will appear.

  • Select from the options or start typing the name of the Page you want to stream to with Crossposting.

    • Repeat this process if you want to Crosspost to multiple Pages.

    • Pages you select will appear in a box with an x before the name.

Live Comments & Crossposting

Each live crosspost is treated as a separate broadcast on each Page. Comments and reactions from your Page's live video won't appear in the other Page's crossposted broadcast. Therefore, the comments that appear in Switcher Studio will be those left on the primary Facebook Page.
