Facebook Pages Connector allows you to connect Lark with your Facebook account to manage your Facebook pages through automated workflows of Zapier, the online automation tool.
About Facebook Pages
Pages are places on Facebook where artists, public figures, businesses, brands, organizations and nonprofits can connect with their fans or customers. When someone likes or follows a Page on Facebook, they can start seeing updates from that Page in their News Feed.

Can I use the Facebook Pages Connector in conjunction with Zapier.com ?
Yes you can do it either within our app or directly on Zapier site but only Facebook Pages x Lark Zaps will show up here in the app.
When I try to create a Zap from a template, although I complete and turn it on, it doesn't seem to work, and the test also fails. Why?
Make sure you have entered Go to Advanced Mode during the set-up, filled in all required fields and tested the triggers and actions before you turn it on.
When I try to set up a Zap involving sending messages to Lark group chats, why can't I find the chat I want from the list of chats on Zapier?
You'll need to add the Zapier Connector bot into a Lark group chat before the chat can appear for selection.
Why the Zap I have successfully set up between Lark and Facebook Pages doesn't show up in the "Managing existing Lark + Facebook Pages Integrations"?
Please double check the Lark account you used for setting up this Zap is exactly the same as your current Lark account (same identify and same tenant). Otherwise, it won't show up.
