How to Get The Most Out Of Facebook With Nimble
In April 2015, Facebook shut down its API to all third-party applications, including Nimble. This is an overview of how this will affect your use of Nimble, and how you will continue to have added value by using Nimble as your primary relationship manager.

While this API policy change will limit Nimble from displaying Facebook contact details within Nimble, we will continue to be able to add unique value to your Facebook relationship workflow including auto-mapping Facebook profiles and displaying relevant work history and profile information within Nimble.
We know that we will continue to be an amazing source of insights and intelligence for your contacts, and we have listed ways to gain the most from Nimble below.

What does this mean for Nimble users?

  1. You will not be able to bulk import your Facebook contacts into Nimble.

  2. Notifications and messages will not sync from your personal Facebook account to Nimble.

Nimble will automatically map Facebook profiles to your contact’s record.

The URL to the contact record will display under Social in the Data Fields tab.

How can I bring my Facebook contacts over to Nimble?

Our Nimble Prospector browser extension allows you to bring Nimble with you wherever you work, Facebook included! Use it to import your contacts from Facebook to Nimble.

You may also use the browser extension to update any of your contacts or manage your relationships without having to be in our main interface.

The Nimble Prospector browser extension is free and available for Chrome, Safari, or Firefox. 

If you have any questions, please write us at, initiate a chat from this FAQ, or join one of our Nimble Onboarding and Best Practices sessions, held every weekday at 9 AM PT.
