How can I connect my social media accounts to NetGalley?

Connecting your social media accounts to NetGalley provides you with an efficient and secure way to share your reviews with your followers and publishers. 

Benefits of connecting:

  • Saves you time! You can easily share reviews directly from NetGalley to your connected social media account(s) with just a few clicks - making it more efficient for you (no need to sign into each account before sharing) and you still have full control over what appears in your post. Think of the connection as a short-cut!
  • Verifies your ownership. By connecting your social media accounts, you’re verifying that you are the owner of those accounts and no one else can claim your account or take credit for your efforts. Just be sure your social profile is set to public if you plan to share your review links with publishers. 
  • Proves your reach. When viewing your NetGalley Profile, publishers can easily click to your verified social handle to see how you advocate for books (with your shared reviews and recommendations). Plus, you won’t need to regularly update your follower counts/stats in your Bio, since publishers can easily view that information when they click to your social handle. 

Keep in mind:

  • NetGalley does not post any content on your behalf unless you explicitly click/tap on the corresponding social icon to share your review to your followers. NetGalley will provide suggested text and a link to your review, but you have full control and the ability to edit or delete the post before you publish it to your social media feed/timeline. 
  • You can revoke the connection at any time (see below).

**If you prefer not to connect your social media accounts to NetGalley, you can manually add your account URLs to the Links section of your Profile - just remember to indicate which link or connection is your Primary Audience (read more here). 

Make sure to sign in to your LinkedIn and/or TikTok accounts in your browser beforehand for easy authorizing! *NetGalley is working on adding other relevant connections, but in the meantime please add links to those accounts by clicking Add a Website (as seen in the screenshot below).

In your NetGalley Profile:

  • Go to the About You tab of your Profile, and scroll down to "Where I Share Reviews" to connect your social networks.

How to authorize each account:

  • LinkedIn: Click the LinkedIn icon, then click Allow to authorize the app, and you will be redirected back to NetGalley. 
  • TikTok: Click the TikTok icon and you will be asked to sign into your TikTok account, and then authorize NetGalley to access your account. Click to authorize the app, and you will be redirected back to NetGalley. *Note that your TikTok account must have previously posted videos that are public in order to connect. This ensures publishers can successfully view your content.
