Managing Multiple Social Media Platforms

I manage multiple social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn), and I need to eliminate the need to open multiple taps every time I have to post something. So I was just wondering: How can I create a PowerApps interface that gives me 3 different sections (each dedicated for one of the aforementioned social media platforms) so that I can post through it to social media, noting that my posts may include photos and links (meaning: I need link previews to appear on Fb and LinkedIn)? Thank you in advance.

Re: Managing Multiple Social Media Platforms

Hi @Mark2040_P ,

Do you want to create an app which connects Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn connector?

 

Based on the needs that you mentioned, I think the PowerApps could achieve your needs. Firstly, you need to add Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn as data source within your app.

Then within your app, you could defined four screens -- One Home screen and three social media platforms screen (each one for corresponding social media platform).

Within the Home screen, you could add three Navigate buttons -- "Facebook Media PlatForm", "Twitter Media PlatForm" and "LinkedIn Media PlatForm".

Set the OnSelect property of the three Navigate buttons to following formula individually:

"Facebook Media PlatForm".OnSelect:

Navigate(FacebookMediaPlatFormScreen)

"Twitter Media PlatForm".OnSelect:

Navigate(TwitterMediaPlatFormScreen)

"LinkedIn Media PlatForm".OnSelect:

Navigate(LinkedInMediaPlatFormScreen)

 

Within each Social Media Platform screen, you could add some Text Input boxes to collect users' enter data and a "Submit" button. When clicking the "Submit" button, you could consider fire a flow (Microsoft Fow), and pass related parameters to the flow, within the flow, you could add corresponding action to post data to corresponding social media platform.

 

Please check and see if the video resoures provided by @Daniel Christian could achieve your needs:

Hi,

 

You can create a powerapp in which you can maintain checkboxes (Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter).

You can add your post details which can be hyperlink, uploading or taking images (using camera control) and any text.

On click of Create button call the microsoft flow. In microsoft flow you can create a flow which creates posts in the respective social media platforms as per the need.

 

So just in a click away you can create posts in all three platforms.

 

 

 

if this gives you some direction mark it as verified and give thumbsup
