We are using Hubspot to handle demo meeting requests and we are going to be running ads to a page where the call to action is to book a live demo. We want to run these ads in Facebook as conversion ads. The problem with this lies in the fact that the Hubspot meeting confirmation is an asynchronous message on the page. It doesn't and cannot load a thank you page. If it did, tracking conversions would be super easy.

So, I found a discussion thread in the hubspot support community where others are begging for a solution and one person posted a script that we can add to Google tag manager that listens for something programatic that we can use to tell Facebook that a conversion happened.

Here is that post: https://community.hubspot.com/t5/HubSpot-Ideas/Allow-for-conversion-tracking-with-Meetings-in-HubSpot/idc-p/256571#M30503

Here is the code that Facebook says we need to fire to tell it a conversion happened:
  fbq('track', 'Schedule');

All I'm looking for is some guidance on setting up this script. I've tried and cannot seem to get it to work.

How can I see what happened to a particular Facebook group invite request? I can't find the original request, and I can't remember enough about the group name to find it again.  

Assistance is greatly appreciated.
I was asked to verify login after #FacebookDown two days ago.

When I submit this error comes up - "It looks like you’re using this feature in a way it wasn’t meant to be used. Please slow down, or you could be blocked from using it."Facebook Error Code
I have submitted forms letting them know about login errors.
I have also attempted to submit form to verify my account w/ my ID but it's showing this error: Error 2
Which also indicates to me that I have not violate any TOS - I am very aware of the rules and do not spam or appear to spam.

I went to bed with a working profile and woke up to this, so I'm assuming this is a result of the outage.  

I can not log into to business manager or my profile. My profile appears blocked, according to my friends.
I have tried several devices.

It appears to me that this is a widespread issue, but I'm wondering if anyone had any insight/solution/way to contact FB.

I have several page notifications in my personal facebook notification list that are marked as read and have turned white, but I have not read them. I need to know why they are marked as read.
Facebook page & group.
A. I have created a Facebook page (Let's call it "Tennis test 1"
B. I also created a group from that page "Tennis test 1 group"
C. I made it a closed group.

1. Can I delete the page , or is it tied in to the group.
2. When I do a search, only the page comes up, not the group.
3. Since I want it closed (Only allowed in once we review your request) How Do I set it up.
4. How do I set it up so only the group comes up. Not the page
I want to make a windows form application that will only show the number of friend we have in a specific Facebook account, so no posting, viewing or whatever. Just a big counter number on a screen.

            dynamic tokenInfo =

            var appAccessToken = (string)tokenInfo.access_token;

            //   FacebookClient client = new FacebookClient(accToken());
            fb.AccessToken = appAccessToken;
            dynamic friendListData = fb.Get("/me/friends");

I have a personal Facebook page.

I want to create a pages for my businesses.

Do I create my business page under my personal account? If no, then what are the steps to follow? I have found different advices online and I don't know which one to follow.

After doing that, is it advisable that I link Instagram to my Facebook business page? I saw an option on FB that does that. Do I use it? Or shall I keep each page separate?


I want to start posting about my new business on social media channels (I want to do on Facebook, Insta, Twitter).

My business is about some pics and description (sandwiches & salads). Is there is a way that I post on one of the mentioned channels and it automatically go to the rest and be posted in the proper manner? Or is the most efficient way is to post the same individually in each channel?


I am looking for some basic help i am trying to pull friends names from a user using the facebook javascript Graph API.

here is the function that I have

  function friendslist()
  console.log("Made it to friends list");
  /* make the API call */
			function (response) {
			  if (response && !response.error) {
				 document.getElementById('status').innerHTML = response.id ;

I have very little understanding of what I am doing inside of my facebook business page and of course, there is no FB support help desk. People are messaging me inside my business page but I am not getting alerts. It appears I have all alerts turned on but I do not see any alerts via email or sms.

I have a personal messenger app on my iphone. Is there a way to have a business version installed?

How do you turn on SMS alerts when people message me on my business page?

thank you

i am at my wits end with a computer problem on facebook and i dont know who to ask. i hope someone here can help me or at least tell me who to ask for help. fb and reddit were not helpful at all.

i have had this problem for almost a year but now its really an issue and i HOPE HOPE HOPE someone here has some idea for me to solve it.

when i try and change the 'seen as active' settings on fb desktop chat sidebar i click on the gear icon and i get the little pop up with the options but when i make a choice it wont work. i always get the little box pop up on my screen with the 3 different options to select from ie turn off active status for all, some, exceptions--- but no matter what combination, --ie addition or subtraction of names or choice of settings ,that i try ---when i click "okay" nothing happens the box just sits there but when i click cancel it will close again.

i've tried on 3 different browsers chrome safari and opera (i am macbook pro running mojave) i cleared my cache, cookies, content settings, autofill content, i tried command enter kind of stuff option enter just anything i could think of but nothing helps at all. i did go on the messenger app to see if i could toggle the options there but those specific set of options do not exist on the app just on desk top.

i have tried so many things and nothing works and i am stuck with a really unfortunate set up as far as who can/cant see me active.

i really really really want and need to change my settings …
Dear all,

Some students use face facebook ID to abuse others.  Is there a way to find that person>
I am a director of IT, who has access to all traffic coming in and going out through the campus.  My question is,  can I find the identity of an individual using face Facebook account at the university through the IP address of the device.  

I can see the facebook links accessed by each individual user, but I don't know how to catch someone using fake Facebook ID through our local IP address.
I'm a newbie in pfSense... I would like to block some URLs like Facebook using pfSense firewall. So i created an IP Table alias of Facebook autonomous system (using WHOIS utility and the CRON package to automat the update process).
But, after creating the rule that would block access to that website, it is still available from user IP address which has access rule under the block rule.
I don't know how i would debug this and make it work correctlry.
Thank you.
I have a desktop App dealing with images.  A couple of years ago we built a C# executable that makes JSON calls in order to transact with FaceBook so that users of my desktop App could upload images directly to their Facebook timeline.  All good.  But now, Facebook is changing their scheme, and they are deprecating one "permission" that we needed in order to do this.  Now Facebook says the new scheme should use a "shared dialog" but they seem only to offer support for Android, iOS, and web-servers.  My question is: how can a windows desktop App do the new scheme? Is it possible?
I have a link


It shows fine in facebook and it whatsapp. I mean it brings up the image and the text. but in Twitter ir keeps the text it has originally? How can I scrape it to update the text?

I'm having trouble. I logged in using my Facebook account. But i cannot manage my password.

i'm unable to sign in unless i use that facebook account, and in doing so i can't change my password.

When I get to 'sign in' I can't. i use the password reset which gives me a temporary password. I go to my setting page, try resetting the password but it doesn't not accept my temporary password so I can't change it either

I'm streaming an event for a client and we're using the Teradek VidiU Pro device to connect to our camera. We'll have an available internet connection of around 10 Mbps upstream. Though reliably I'd rather only count on half that. We've looked at Livestream, YouTube, and Facebook for livestream options. Honestly, I can't tell a huge difference between them and it seems they will all work fairly well with the VidiU Pro.

We'd prefer to do this at no cost for streaming but are willing to pay if we need to do things like remove advertising. We'd like to view it on Facebook, which theoretically we could do with all 3 options. And possibly even embed it on another website if needed.

Anyone had experience with these options and the Teradek VidiU Pro that can provide some advice?
Hey all I am trying to invite a user as a tester for my Facebook App. Problem being that once i add them in the tester section it doesn't seem to ever send a email and/notification to them in order to send them there to approve the app permissions and all.

But if I add that same user to either the developer or analytics group then it does send them an invitation and allows them to come to the app and accept it.

(notice it says (Pending) meaning it sent an invite to them to accept. But that was not shown in the tester group area....
Hi this is taken from the FB comments plugin page:


There are 2 ways to navigate to the moderation tool:

1. App-based moderation view: Go to developers.facebook.com/tools/comments. You will get a list of all your Facebook apps, which lets you moderate all comments associated with each app. If you don't use a Facebook app with your comments plugin, you won't be able to use this view.

2. Page-based moderation view: Click the Moderation Tool link next to the comments box (see screenshot below). The view only shows comments posted to this webpage (URL).

I used the page based moderation view for my website, however the functionality is very limited compared with app-based view. For example comments are published automatically, and they cannot be moderated before hand. In addition, I cannot delete any user comments.

Am I missing something, is there more to page based moderation?

In addition, can anyone recommend a good third party comments solution that i can install on my server, that has good moderation functionality?

Thanks for your help!
Been gone from FB sdk for a couple years now and just now getting back into it again for a project I am working on.

I've been looking over the new API documents and, correct me if incorrect, but it seems that FB no longer allows you to pull your friends photo's from their albums? Is this correct or am I overlooking something here?

I'm getting my access token by using the JS code to login and I'm able to query my own photos, friends, etc but once I place a friends ID into it instead of /me it does not show anything other than maybe their name and id even when I place the following into the graph query:
