IDX Broker offers Facebook integration right from your IDX Broker account. Through this feature you may connect your IDX Broker account to a Facebook business page and show your featured listings right on Facebook. To customize the settings for the IDX Broker Facebook page, select Designs --> Pages.
Step 1 - Fetch Facebook Page ID
From this page you may select Edit Preferences in the Facebook page row. There are two tabs that offer customization. To link your IDX Broker account to Facebook, please select the Facebook ID tab and enter the web address of your page into the IDX Broker Facebook settings. Simply paste the address and we will look up your Facebook page ID.
If you do not have a Facebook business page you can create one via the link provided. You will not be able to use this app with a personal Facebook profile or any page that is not open to the public. A simple way to tell the difference is personal Facebook profiles have “friends” and business Facebook pages have “likes”.
NOTE: If your Facebook business page is not published, the IDX Broker system will not be able to locate your Page ID. Your business page cannot use this feature if you have age, country, or other privacy restrictions.
Step 2 - Add the Facebook Page App
After setting your Facebook page ID, you will need to add this app. Simply click 'link on FB' to enable the IDX Facebook app. You will need to be logged into your Facebook account for this step.
There are different versions of the app that will appear slightly different on Facebook.
Step 3 - Customize the Facebook Page App
You can customize the Facebook tab icon and name in your Facebook page settings. This link for Facebook shows this process. Just like your other IDX Broker pages, Custom CSS and subheaders are available. You can edit the CSS and subheaders by navigating to the main Designs menu. Facebook is a page level customization in the Other category.
On the settings tab you may select how many property listings you would like to show per page on Facebook.
- Adding the Facebook app for IDX Broker creates a new tab on your Facebook business page. You have to remove the previous version if you have added it previously in order to use the new version or you get 2 tabs for featured listings. The previous version doesn't update its display to show the new template without being added to Facebook and adding it creates a separate app id.
