Absolute beginner at Social webs!

Absolute beginner at Social webs!

I run a number of web site for an organisation (not for profit) - I have no experience with the Social thing - I think I need to check whether you app can do what I have in mind.

This organisation also has a Facebook page (not run by me!). I thought it would be nice if it were possible to post an article from one or more of our web sites to this facebook page. Is that possible with JFBConnect?

Possible for visitors to a web site to post an article from a web site to his/her facebook page?

I have recently purchased a licence for JFBConnect and tried to follow your instructions - though they seem fairly detailed and I see your help is pretty good I really don't know what i am doing - reading up in Facebook confuses me even more - do you know of a beginner's guide to Social Posting?

Thanks,

Richard

Yes! This can be done with our "Channels" feature, which allows you to setup a Facebook Page that your site can post content too. That content can either be manually pushed by an administrator on your site or can be setup to automatically post to the Page whenever new content is created.

If you don't own/manage the Page, that shouldn't be a problem. You will, however, need to get the Administrator of the Facebook Page to authenticate on the site and grant the permissions for your website to post on the Page's behalf though.

While the Channels feature could be enabled for all users to post content to your Page, I really wouldn't recommend this. Each post can have a comment along with it and it will be displayed prominently on your Page. Normally, this is something you'd want to monitor and ensure is done at the right times, with the right message and by the right people.

Setting up social networking can be tough. We try to automate things as much as possible, but there's always some elbow grease required. Many features, like Channels, build on top of other features, like authentication.. so it's a building block approach to get things going. If you haven't already, check out our Quick Start Guide. The "Post Content to Social Networks" section sounds like what you're looking for and should at least show you the features that need to be configured to get what you're looking for.

Of course, if you run into specific obstacles along the way, please let us know what they are and we'll gladly help however we can.

Thanks,
