Adding the new Facebook grids into Fast Talker

Facebook has announced they are officially changing over to their new website in September 2020. If you are using Fast Talker or Fast Talker Large Cell, updated versions of these grid sets with the new Facebook app are available in Grid 3 via Menu > Add grid sets > Text Communication.

You may prefer to update your existing Fast Talker grid set if you have personalised it and made a lot of changes. Watch the video below to learn how.

This tutorial will show you three different ways to use the new Facebook grids with your existing Fast Talker grid set. You will need to have updated to the latest version of Grid 3 (version 56).

  • Method one is the simplest, where you go back to Grid Explorer to switch between Facebook and Fast talker.
  • Method two involves editing a cell in both Facebook and Fast Talker, and using the change grid set command to switch between them.
  • Method three imports the new Facebook grid set into your existing Fast Talker grid set.

If you need any help moving over to the new Facebook please get in touch with our Support team. Facebook is still tweaking their new website behind the scenes, so let us know if you have any problems with any of the features!


Please be aware that if you do not update Grid, your grid set will not be compatible with Facebook when they remove the classic version of their website.
