How do I get my Facebook ID, Twitter Handle and other social media account information?
In order to show your latest twitter, facebook and other social media updates on Yocale, you should enter this information into the “Social Media” dialogue under “Tools”
For Twitter, it’s easy, just enter your Twitter handle (e.g. @yocalenetwork or yocalenetwork), and we will get your latest updates from that twitter account and show them on your Yocale booking page.
For Instagram, itís easy, just enter your Instagram User Name (e.g. yocale), rest we will do it for you, we will get your latest updates from that Instagram account and show them on your Yocale Public Profile page.
For Facebook, because of Facebook’s privacy rules, we can only show updates from Facebook pages and not personal Facebook profiles (See the difference here: https://www.facebook.com/help/281592001947683/ )
If you have a facebook page and want to include updates from that page, you would have to enter your Facebook ID. A Facebook ID is in the format of numbers, e.g. 167505060126596 is the Facebook ID for Yocale’s Facebook page.
To get your Facebook ID:
The easiest way to get your Facebook ID is as follows:
Go to your Facebook wall page (Click on your name on the top left side of the page)
Copy the URL for your Facebook profile
Paste your Facebook wall profile into this Page
Click on “Lookup Facebook ID”
From there, copy the number that appears, and paste that number into your Social Media Facebook account field in Yocale.
Click “Save” to save the profile information.
YouTube requires a channel ID in order to show the videos in that channel.

Your Flickr ID is different from your user ID for Flickr. It looks similar to the following format: 7891794@N07
