Search Facebook in the Content Studio

The Content Studio makes it easy to search for content from any public Facebook Fan Page. Auto-complete and page avatars help you to quickly find the exact Fan Page you are looking for. The inline preview provides a quick post view. You are also able to mouse over to view and interact with the full Facebook embed.

To search and curate posts from Facebook Fan Pages:
1. Go to your stream's Write page.
2. Click on the Facebook tab located in the Search Content column.
3. Type the fan page name into the search bar and click Enter


4. Select desired fan page from drop-down menu. 

5. Select either Posts or Feeds.
  • Posts: show only the posts that were published by this page. 
  • Feeds: show posts (including status updates) and links published by this page, or by others on this page. This includes approved Tagged / Visitor Posts. 


6. Hovering over the desired posts will display an inline preview.  
7. Click the checkmark to publish or the plus to bring into the Moderation Hub.

Note: Facebook posts publish as Facebook Embeds by default. This means they are media rich and include text, headlines, images, videos and interactive content.
