WP Jetpack – Reconnect Facebook

Reconnecting Facebook

Sometimes, the connection between Facebook and Jetpack might get disconnected. Not to worry, the following steps should get you up and running again quickly.

  1. Log into your site. Go to your dashboard -> Settings -> Sharing and click the X next to the link to the Facebook profile or page you wish to disconnect.
  2. Reload the page and confirm the link now says Create new Facebook connection, but don’t click that link yet.
  3. Log into your Facebook account. Then go to your Facebook Account Settings > Apps page by clicking this App Settings link.
  4. Remove the WordPress.com app by clicking the X in its row. (If there is no WordPress.com row, don’t worry, just skip this step). If you see a popup asking for confirmation, click the “Remove” button.
  5. Log back into your site. Go to your dashboard -> Settings -> Sharing and follow these steps to reconnect.
