Hi @v-evelk

I'm just joine to this forum and i dont know  what you mean in the appropriate thread.

Your question is about connector.

Connectors are common feature of Power BI Desktop, but not the Custom Visual Development aspect.

It is better to discuss all common questions regarding Desktop application in the Desktop thread (I provided you a hyperlink to the thread previously).

Returning to your question, in the latest Desktop version I can see Facebook connector, so I can guess that you use older version and in this case you can try to update it. Have you tried to use search box to look for the connector?

Hi @MaheshaDilhani ,

If you need a older Power BI Desktop Version in which the connector is already in you can use this one: https://onedrive.live.com/?authkey=%21APqLvtEBCRZuSGc&id=88C2F8B2EA8FEE5B%2111695&cid=88C2F8B2EA8FEE...

After you created the connection - copy the M-Script from the advanced editor and than you can use it in a newer Power BI Desktop Version :).

 

Best,

Kathrin

I checked it and can conclude that there is Facebook connection in connectors list (pic below).

So, please try to use search box to quickly find it.

I suppose that this article may be useful also.
