FAQ

Can I send social alerts to my Facebook Profile or Group?

No, only Pages are supported for Facebook at this time.

If I add a social alert for my Facebook Page, will my stream go live there too?

Social alerts and streaming destinations are separate features. Your stream would only go live to your Page if you've added it to your list of channels as seen in this guide.

Furthermore, you can disconnect your Facebook social alert at any moment and it will not affect your stream to that Facebook channel.

💡 Easily view and manage chat messages from Facebook, Discord, and other platforms—all conveniently in one place.
