You can directly connect social media profiles when importing data into Crowdskout through our Import Tool. As a reminder when an email address enters Crowdskout, the email is scanned through Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn to see if any positive matches are made. If any matches are made to that email, all matched social profiles will appear in the individual's profiles.
You can also import social profiles directly through the import tool. Each social profile can have four data points attached to it: Social Media Network, Social Media ID, Social Media Nickname, and Social Media URL.
1. Social Media Network: Make sure to include the network name for every social media connection you import so you can drill down upon that data in segmenting later. Here is a list of the network names you can import:
2. Social Media ID: This should be the ID that is unique to that network. Please note the following for importing Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin IDs:
-LinkedIn: A LinkedIn profile ID is needed to connect a LinkedIn account. This can be found in the URL of the LinkedIn profile. An ID is the numbers or letters found after the "www.linkedin.com/in." For example "profileid123" would be the profile ID for the following profile URL, "www.linkedin.com/in/profileid123"
-Facebook: A Facebook numerical ID is needed to connect a Facebook account to a Crowdskout profile when importing.
-Twitter: a Twitter ID is needed to connect a Twitter account. If you only have Twitter usernames you can convert them to ID numbers by using a Twitter ID converter.
3. Social Media Nickname: For most social media platforms this is the username or handle for the profile. This is a custom text field.
4. Social Media URL: This is the URL of the profile.
To import social profiles, make sure to include the social media network and at least one of the following: Social Media ID, Social Media Nickname, or Social Media URL. Each of these need to be individual columns in the CSV. When mapping the social media columns to your import, select the corresponding field of Social Media Network, Social Media ID, Social Media Nickname, or Social Media URL for the columns in your CSV.
After you've mapped the columns in your import you will be brought to an inspection page where you are able to identify which columns go together to make up one social media network.
