Connecting to Facebook

How do I add Tumblr to my Facebook Timeline?

  1. Click Settings (the gear icon) at the top of your Dashboard.
  2. Click the blog you’d like to update on the left side of the page.
  3. In the Facebook section, check the box that says “Share posts on your Timeline.”
  4. Click “Sign in with Facebook,” then click “Log in with Facebook.”
  5. After connecting to Facebook, be sure to hit “Save” on your blog settings page.



You can share your Posts, Likes, and Asks from Tumblr on Facebook! If you don't want to send every single post to Facebook, leave "Share posts on your Timeline" unchecked. When creating a new post, just click the Facebook icon at the bottom of the post form to share the post.

Can I share posts to Pages other than my personal profile?

Yup! After connecting Tumblr to Facebook, go back to your the Preferences page for the blog 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.

Can posts be shared on Facebook Groups?

No, not at the moment.

Troubleshooting

Can I control how my Tumblr posts look on Facebook?

We cannot control how Tumblr content displays on Facebook — this includes where the content appears on your Facebook profile and which thumbnails are used.

Why don’t all my posts show up on my Newsfeed?

Facebook only displays a certain number of posts so that there’s less app clutter on the feed.

Why are my posts not showing up on my Timeline?

Facebook posting may be delayed at times due to network issues. Also, make sure the Facebook icon is blue when creating a new post. If you've clicked it and it has turned gray, that means you've turned off posting to Facebook for that specific post.

What if I’m having trouble connecting to Facebook?

We recommend removing the Tumblr application then re-connecting.

  1. Go to facebook.com/editapps.php and click the ‘x’ icon next to the Tumblr app.
  2. Click Settings (the gear icon) at the top of your Dashboard.
  3. Click the blog you’d like to update on the left side of the page.
  4. In the Facebook section, check the box that says “Share posts on your Timeline.”
  5. Click “Sign in with Facebook,” then click “Log in with Facebook.”
  6. After connecting to Facebook, be sure to scroll down on the Settings page and click “Save.”

If that doesn’t help, make sure you’ve enabled pop-ups on your browser.
