Issue

Unable to connect to Facebook data through Connection Cloud.

Environment

  • Tableau Desktop
  • Facebook
  • Connection Cloud

Cause

The ability to connect directly to Facebook is not a functionality currently built into Tableau Desktop. The Web Data Connector provides a way for Tableau Desktop to connect to data that doesn't already have a connection option in Tableau Desktop.
