Facebook Connector is Missing

Can anyone update wether we can get facebook data to Power BI? Because I cant find Facebook connector under Online serevices.


I know they discontinued the old API. 


But saw an article on there documentation which was updated recently with the connector (there is a warning as well) 



Due to Facebook App permission restrictions, the connector capabilities described in this article are not currently working properly. We’re working with Facebook to return this functionality as soon as possible.

There is many other easy ways to connect your facebook data to power bi.
There is multiple platform that you can use to connect and analyse you data.
here is some I've used in the past :

- Funnel io 

- coupler


Hope this helps !!!

Dear Friend ,

Power bi has discontinued fb get data services due to permission issues from facebook side.


I don't think this get data from fb will be working anymore . As I also shared you a notice in my above reply which was for excel but they have also discontinued for BI as permission issues from FB . 

And video shared by one of our friend in above reply , won't help cause those videos are 3 years old from curbal YouTube channel , when this FB thing used to work , but sorry to say ,untill MS people don't resolves issue with FB , you won't  be able to use get data from FB thing .

Dear friend , 


This is what I found , 


"Important: Retirement of Facebook data connector notice   Import and refresh data from Facebook in Excel will stop working in April, 2020. You will still be able to use the Facebook Get & Transform (Power Query) connector until then, but starting in April, 2020, you will be unable to connect to Facebook and will receive an error message. We recommend revising or removing any existing Get & Transform (Power Query) queries that use the Facebook connector as soon as possible to avoid unexpected results."
