ScreenCloud Facebook Page Likes App Guide

Please note, if you are using the older version of ScreenCloud (signage.screencloud.com) you can download the alternative Page Likes guide here.

The ScreenCloud Page Likes for Facebook app takes your Facebook page data such as page handle and number of likes and adds it to your digital screens. This makes it easy for your customers to find you online and to increase engagement with your Facebook page.

With the ScreenCloud Page Likes for Facebook app you can:

  • Connect any Facebook business page
  • Generate a QR code to take viewers direct to your Facebook page
  • Customize the look and feel of your Facebook page details

Here’s how it works:

1. Select and install ScreenCloud’s Page Likes for Facebook app

1.1. Get started by logging into your ScreenCloud account here and choosing the ScreenCloud App Store from the left-hand menu.

2.2. Once logged in, you will see your business page, or a list of business pages if you manage more than one. Select the appropriate business page to return to the ScreenCloud App Store. Please note, you must have administrative rights or own a Facebook Business page to connect it with ScreenCloud. When you see the green checkmark next to “login” you have successfully linked your business page.

You also have the option to create your own custom theme. To create a custom theme, check out our guide on how to use the App Theme Editor.

Frequently asked questions

How long will the Page Likes for Facebook app show for?

The app will show for the duration you have set within the playlist. This can be edited from the Playlists section.

How often does the app update with new likes?

Every 1-minute the Page Likes for Facebook app checks for, and updates, new likes.

Why can't I connect a Facebook Business page or receiving a message that no pages are available?

If you're attempting to connect a Facebook Business page from an organization or company you're apart of, there could be account restrictions preventing the use of the page. This could also occur if you're not the owner or administrator that manages the page or have similar permissions to grant permissions for third-party applications (such as ScreenCloud) or services to connect with the Facebook account. We recommend connecting both with your Facebook administrator further and our support team for assistance if you're having any challenges connecting a page.
