How to share new Discourse posts as Facebook Group messages

Wouldn’t it be cool if your Discourse posts could be magically sent to a Facebook group instead of having to do it manually? Integromat does this very trick by watching for your new Discourse posts, grabbing them, and sharing them on a Facebook group of your choice - all automatically.

There’s even more you can do with the Discourse app when you connect it to a variety of other apps using Integromat. For example, you can automatically create a post, topic, or private message, update or delete topics and posts, and more. Integromat has everything you need to create fully automated workflows with zero coding required.

  • Your scenario watches for new Discourse posts using the Discourse > Watch posts module

  • It then posts the topic, link title, and link as a message to a selected Facebook group using the Facebook groups > Create a post module

  • Schedule the posts to your own needs
