🔧 Troubleshooting Tips:
If you do not see any pop-ups during this process, please turn off any ad-blockers that are connected to your web browser.
If you are already logged in to a Facebook account in your web browser, Mention will quickly recognize this and attempt to connect to the Facebook account that is signed in. This will help you get through the process quicker! However, if the account is managed on a different Facebook account then we recommend signing out of Facebook in your web browser, using an incognito window, or using a different browser that is not signed in to anything!
If you login to Mention using your account credentials and Mention notifies you that there are no pages to connect, please contact the admin who manages the Facebook page. You must first get access to the page via page roles on Facebooks platform and you must be a Page Admin or Editor to connect.
