Updating a Facebook fan page

Post by tsolignani » 25 Mar 2020 07:05

Good morning everyone.

I am trying to build a flow to publish a post update to a Facebook fan page.

Every fan page on Facebook has its own URL, but, while opening, say, a group by its URL, opening a page by its URL does not work, not with the Facebook app and with the Page app either.

For groups, I just use the "open URL" action, telling automagic to use the Facebook app, see example, and when I run it it just open the Facebook app and goes to the group page.

While if I try to do the same with a Facebook page URL, it just open the Facebook app or Page app (I tried that, as well) on the home page.

Do you know if there's a way to make them open to the page for which I opened the URL?

Thank you.

i don't use FB app on android, so can't test this.

Do you use the this pattern link?
fb://page/PAGEID
example from tutorial : https://www.devildoxx.com/web-developme ... using-app/
fb://page?id=573726622765559

If you have the raw url, maybe we need to do some regex to parse the pageid and reformat it to the url pattern above.

Thank you.

That tutorial didn't work, maybe used to work with previous fb app versions.

Nevertheless, I managed to make it work.

Here the working flow, maybe it can be useful to other as well.

Thanks again.
