    Does this connect to my personal account, or can I connect to a Facebook page I manage?

    Hi Todd,

    You will be asked to log into Facebook when connecting accounts. You may log into Facebook with the credentials of your choice and any posts or blogs in Schoology which you choose to share will be posted to the connected Facebook account.

    I hope this information helps!

    Is there a way for it to differentiate between posting to my personal account and the page I manage? Unfortunately, there is no separate access for the page - I have to access the page through my personal account.

    Hi Todd,

    The Facebook integration can only post to the default account page for your personal account. You may want to consider adding this as a Feature Idea so that others can search for and support your idea with an upvote.
