Authentication failed

Some networks (like Instagram, Facebook, Google) require API authentication before your feeds start working. Please check Auth tab that desired social network is authenticated.

If you use own tokens instead of connection via our application, please check that you generated tokens properly and copied/pasted the whole thing.  Authentication Guides

Incorrect feed configuration

Check spelling and notes while editing feed under the Content to show field. For example, you probably added empty space or @ symbol which is not needed. Or you added account name that doesn’t exist etc. 

Facebook Token is expired

User access tokens come in two forms: short-lived tokens and long-lived tokens. Short-lived tokens usually have a lifetime of about an hour or two, while long-lived tokens usually have a lifetime of about 60 days.

Basically, if people visit your website regularly Flow-Flow extends your token automatically. So you don’t need to take any additional actions. Otherwise, you need to check that your token is live and re-generate it if necessary.

Regenerate or extend Facebook token

Social network API requests limit exceeded

Try to decrease  Load Last value on Stream settings. Also check that feeds are properly configured and you use correct tokens.
