Why Do I Need to Reconnect My Profile?

Every so often, you may see the following message appear in your Oktopost account:

[User]'s [Network]'s Profile was disconnected and requires re-authentication.

This message means that your social profile or company page no longer has valid credentials, and any posts you scheduled will not be published until you reconnect it. This can happen for a number of reasons, as listed below:

  • A periodical requirement on behalf of the social network
  • Posting error that caused the need for revalidation
  • User changed his/her password for the social network
  • The user has modified access to the application
  • The user never completed the Oktopost authorization process (a step may have been skipped)
