How to synchronize all posts within Publer

You can now have all of your social media posts in one place, regardless of whether or not they were published with Publer.

When you connect your social account to Publer, it will automatically sync posts from a month ago. However, you can manually sync posts from as far back as 3 years ago, so the maximum sync date is 3 years back.

Note: When you sync posts, their insights won't be synced automatically. To do that, simply sync insights in the Analytics tab.

Warning: You cannot synchronize posts for Facebook personal profiles, groups, and Facebook/Instagram stories, due to API limitations. However, all the Facebook/Instagram posts and stories that you share using Publer will be stored under Posts > Posted and you will always be able to access them in the future.

To synchronise posts:

Go to Social Accounts and choose an account you want to Sync Posts for.
Go to Settings.
Click on Sync Posts Now.

Sync Posts

Then, select a date to sync posts from. You can sync posts from today, a few days ago, or as far back as 3 years ago.

Syncing Older Posts

You will see a notification on the screen, telling you that the syncing process has started.
After a little time, you will get a Notification on the bell, letting you know that the syncing process has finished.

Note: You can specify if you want to Automatically Sync Posts, Sync posts published by non-admins for Facebook or Sync saved pins published by others for Pinterest, and Add media from synced posts to the Media Library.


When you choose to Add media from synced posts to Media Library, only the photos will be synced. Storing/downloading videos to the Media Library can become very costly, very quickly. However, all future video posts you create in Publer will be stored in the Media Library accordingly.

You will still see all the old published video posts in Publer, under Posts > Posted, after the syncing process has finished. If you reuse them, we will then store/download the video, in the Media Library, except for TikTok's case since they don't allow us to programmatically download videos from their servers.

Be default, posts will be automatically synced. If you want to remove the content added by auto-sync, contact us.

Keep in mind that:

Some posts, such as Facebook and Instagram stories etc, cannot be synced due to API limitations from the social networks.
Synchronizing posts will be a background job that happens automatically twice a day and manually whenever you click on Sync Posts Now.
Synchronizing posts is only supported with Professional and Business plans.
You can also synchronize posts with the Free plan, but only for a specific Instagram account and if you have already set up your Link in Bio landing page.

Now that you have synchronized posts, you can add them to your Link in Bio landing page, or manage them to your liking.
