Join My List app not working

When I try to set up the Join My List app in Facebook, I get an error message that says "This page isn't available. The link may be broken, or the page may have been removed. Check to see if the link you're trying to open is correct." 

 

I click on "Add app" in the page as shown in this screenshot:

And that's when I get the error. The Constant Contact integration link is apparently trying to go to "apps.facebook.com" which no longer exists. So there is no way to integrate Constant Contact into Facebook without using a Constant Contact ad, which is not suitable for my purposes. I just want people to be able to join a mailing list from our Facebook page. That does not appear to be possible anymore.

Re: Join My List app not working

Hello @JamesW39 ,

 

We're sorry to hear you've run into this error. For the sake of troubleshooting, would you be able to perform some of the following steps and see if any of them resolve the issue for you?

  1. Remove the FB JMML from the Facebook page
  2. Close the browser
  3. Reopen it and do not log into FB
  4. Log into CTCT and add the JMML through the Integrations tab
  5. Connect the page
  6. Click Go to Facebook after the app install steps are completed
  7. Click customize
  8. Complete the customization and Save

Another potential workaround is:

  1. Try a different browser / private browser mode
  2. Try connecting with a different admin
  3. Try another computer
  4. Try both Facebook Classic and New modes:
    - Click the dropdown arrow on the Facebook page and choose either "Switch to Classic Facebook" or "Switch to New Facebook".
    - In Classic, Join My List will be in the left sidebar/column, possibly under the More section.
    - In New, Join My List will be across the top of the page, possibly under the More section.

If none of these troubleshooting methods work, you could potentially utilize Facebook's Contact button/tab, and link a Lead-Generation Landing page to accomplish effectively the same thing. Here are some instructions for adding the button if you haven't done it for your business page before:

  1. Below the page cover photo, click "+ Add a Button". If your page already has a button like Send Message, click it and choose Edit Button
  2. Under "Step 1: Which button do you want people to see?", choose "Contact you"
  3. Choose Sign Up and click Next
  4. Under "Step 2: Where would you like this button to send people?", choose Website
  5. Paste in the landing page URL, click Save, then click Finish

Join My List App?

i have followed the videos to the "join my list App" for several times. By the time i get to "allow access", the pop up kept telling me that Constant contact has lost the connection and refresh my browser.

Hi @Lilyt17

 

Thanks for joining us in the Community. I certainly understand the concern with what has occurred so far to generate new sign ups. Which browser do you currently use and are you attempting to connect with your personal page that's attached to your business page where you'd like the join my list app to appear?

Re: Join My List app not working

Thank you, switching to Classic Facebook in a different browser did the trick. However, is there any way to move the "Join my List" tab out from under "More" on the new Facebook? I'm concerned that people won't know to look for it and the new Facebook does a really good job of not letting you find things!

Hi @JamesW39 

 

That's a great question! Having the ability to move the order of the Facebook Join My List tab is not an available feature. It is however a feature request I have tracked in your account. In the meantime I would also suggest submitting feedback on this to Facebook directly as Facebook controls the ability to adjust the navigation bar on your page.

Re: Join My List app not working

Greetings!

I've been following the prompts through this and when I got through to reinstall the app on Facebook through Constant Contact integration, I get to the download the app and when you click it, I get: 

Sorry, this content isn't available right now
The link you followed may have expired, or the page may only be visible to an audience you're not in.
 
The app is also no longer showing under the apps on Facebook's Business Integration for me to add directly back here either. I've cleared history, logged out, gone incognito, and still cannot get the app back.

Hello @AmandaS8094 ,

 

I have removed the integration from your account on Constant Contact's side. Please try and reinstall the App again.
