Zapier is an online automation tool that connects your favorite apps, such as Facebook, Gmail, Slack, and more, automating repetitive tasks without the need for coding or relying on developers to build the integration. Setting up Facebook with Zapier can enhance your social media management, streamline your marketing workflow, and improve your overall productivity. Here’s how you can set up Facebook with Zapier in a few easy steps:

  1. Create a Zapier Account:
    Begin by signing up for a Zapier account at Choose a pricing plan that suits your business needs – there is even a free tier available to get you started.

  2. Choose Your Facebook Trigger:
    Once logged in, click on 'Make a Zap' button. Start by choosing Facebook as your trigger app – this means your Zap will start with a particular action on Facebook, such as receiving a new lead or someone filling out your contact form.

  3. Select Facebook Trigger Event:

After choosing Facebook as your trigger app, you will be prompted to select a trigger event from the options provided. This could be anything from a new post on your page, a new lead on a lead ad, to a new mention.

  1. Connect Your Facebook Account:
    To allow Zapier to automate tasks in your account, you’ll need to connect your Facebook account to Zapier. This usually involves logging into your Facebook account and giving Zapier permission to access your account data.

  2. Choose an Action App:
    Once your Facebook trigger is configured, it’s time to pick an action app, which is where your data will go after being triggered from Facebook. For instance, you could choose to have new Facebook leads automatically added to your CRM or mailing list.

  3. Select Action Event:

Choose what particular action you want the action app to perform. For example, if your action app is a CRM, you might want to create a new contact for each new Facebook lead.

  1. Test Your Zap:
    It is always recommended to test your Zap to ensure it's functioning correctly. Zapier will provide you with a test button that usually runs your trigger event and ensures the action is performed in your action app as expected.

  2. Set Your Zap Live:
    Once you’re satisfied with the results of your test, simply turn on the Zap. Zapier will then automate the tasks between Facebook and your chosen action apps.

And that’s it! You’ve now successfully set up Facebook with Zapier. This simple setup can significantly boost your online efficiency by automating mundane tasks, giving you more time to focus on growing your business.
