We have created updates to the TAKUMI app which will require you to have a Facebook page linked to your TAKUMI account. This change will be fully rolled out by December and action is required from today onwards.
Going forward we will require all influencers to have a Business or Creator account to participate in brand campaigns with TAKUMI. This change will mean that all influencers will need to link their Facebook Page that is connected to an Instagram Business or Creator Account to the TAKUMI app. By linking your page with your TAKUMI account you will provide us with your profile and media information. This will help us review accounts more accurately, better target campaigns and more accurately match you with opportunities.
How to link the TAKUMI app
If you don’t have a Business or Creator account, here’s a link on how to “Set Up a Creator Account”: https://help.instagram.com/2358103564437429
Once you have set up your Business or Creator account you’ll be asked to connect your Instagram account to a Facebook Page, please connect the pages.
If you have a Business or Creator account already but haven’t connected to a Facebook Page, here’s a link to “Add or change the Facebook Page Connected to Your Instagram Business Account”: https://help.instagram.com/570895513091465
In the TAKUMI App, you will need to link to the Facebook Page that is connected to your Instagram account — this is called the “Link Facebook Page”, as seen on the main button in the screenshot below. You will be asked to log into Facebook and give TAKUMI permission to access information related to your Instagram account.
To flag, after you’ve linked the Facebook page, you can go back into “Settings” and “Facebook Page” at any time and unlink the page to revoke future access to any of their data, however, this will prevent you from continuing using TAKUMI.
After December 9th, if you haven’t linked your Facebook page to your TAKUMI account in the app, you will not be able to access any campaigns — you will only be able to log into the app and go to ‘Settings’. To solve this you will be able to access settings in the app and link up a page at any time or log out which will throw the ‘Link Facebook Page on an attempt to login.
If you’re on a campaign and you still haven’t linked your Facebook page, you will be notified on email by a member of the Campaign team to ensure this has been done, otherwise, it will disrupt the campaign you’re working on.
Why do I need to link my Facebook Page to the TAKUMI app?
The Facebook Page link will give TAKUMI access to your profile information. By linking your page with your TAKUMI account you will provide us with your profile and media information. This will help us review accounts more accurately, better target campaigns and more accurately match you with opportunities. Remember, you can revoke the access at any point.
What if I don’t want to link my Facebook Page to the TAKUMI app or change to a Business or Creator account?
If you don’t want to link your Facebook Page or change to a Business or Creator account you won’t be able to use TAKUMI, this will be a standard requirement for all influencers wanting to work with TAKUMI on brand campaigns.
