Facebook permits posting through their API, though it comes with specific restrictions. Automatic posting from third-party apps is available for business pages but not for groups.

Manual Posting through the Mobile App:

To share content in a Facebook Group, download and use the PromoRepublic mobile app. This app facilitates a semi-automatic posting method for groups where you have permission to post. You can publish posts in any group where you're a member or an administrator. Note that the post will follow the typical approval process, which might include admin approval depending on the group's settings. Always ensure you comply with Facebook's community standards and the specific rules of each group.

First, download the PromoRepublic mobile app based on your device:

Notice for doTERRA Social Users

If you are using doTERRA Social, please ensure that you download and use the doTERRA Social apps instead:

These apps are tailored specifically for doTERRA's social media tasks and features.


Log in using the same method as you do on your desktop, whether it's email/password or via social login. It's crucial to use the same login credentials on the mobile app as you did on the desktop to prevent any access issues. The app does not permit switching between login methods; for example, if you originally used email and password on the desktop, you cannot log in with social login on the mobile app, and vice versa.

After scheduling a post for a specific day and time, you will receive a notification on your phone when it's time to publish. If you are managing multiple groups, you will receive separate notifications for each group when their respective posts are ready to be published.
