What are ‘access permissions’?

Access permissions grant the tool the permission to access your profile’s insights data and allow you to manage the profile with the tool. Usually you need to be an administrator of a profile to grant Fanpage Karma with these permissions. It is enough for one user in the account to have these access permissions. In order to grant the permissions, add the profiles to your account here:

How many followers must a profile have to be evaluated in Fanpage Karma?

We only include profiles with at least 100 fans. Our system would be overloaded with small profiles if we included all of them. For your own pages, this limit does not apply. 

How can I add my own profiles with access permissions to Fanpage Karma ?

You can manage your own profiles with access permissions in Settings:

PLEASE NOTE that you should first make sure that your personal Facebook profile has at least the analyst status of your Facebook Page. You can manage these settings in the Facebook area ‘Page roles’ in your page settings.

Furthermore, your personal Facebook profile has to be the admin of the ads account of the Facebook Business Manager which you use to push ads on to your Instagram Business profile (if applicable).

Your Instagram profile should be a business profile and it needs to be connected to a Facebook Page that you are the admin of. Each Facebook page can have only one linked Instagram page. To connect your Instagram business page to a Facebook fan page, go to the Facebook area ‘Manage Page’->’Settings’->’Instagram’.


To grant Fanpage Karma with the necessary permissions for your profile try the following steps:

  1. Please go to the profile page:

  1. Click on the Add-profile-Button and choose the network.

For Facebook or Instagram, a popup from Facebook will appear.

  1. This is the crucial step: Click on Edit Settings and choose all profiles and all permissions.
  2. Save the settings. Your pages should now appear with all rights and data available in Fanpage Karma.

Did that help?

If that did not work, there is a sure way to restore the rights:

  1. Log out of Fanpage Karma.
  2. Go to both URLs and
