Social Network Applications

Guides on creating the applications for each of the social networks we support. Applications are generally used for authentication features, but each social network has additional features that having an application will help with (Open Graph Actions, meta tags, social sharing, etc).

Social networks are continually evolving so the application setup process changes quite often. If you are having issues with our setup guides for a social network and notice that the guide is out-of-date, please let us know so that we can quickly go through the process and update our guide for you.

Social Posting

JFBConnect allows you to easily setup different social network "Channels" so that you can quickly post any content from your site to a Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Twitter Stream or LinkedIn Company Page.

Once setup, any user of your site with the proper permissions will be able to post to the configured channels. They won't need to be authenticated to the social network or go through extra hoops, they'll simply be able to type a message, select the 'channel', and hit post. It's a great way to let other admins/managers on your site push content to your social channels with ease.

Open Graph

Open Graph is the term used by Facebook (and some other social networks) as the meta data used to describe your pages. This includes title, description and image for the page, but can also go much deeper to include menu items for a restaurant or authors of a book.
