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.

Creating a Social Channel

The first configuration step to pushing content from your site to social networks is creating the "social channel" to be pushed to. This is a process of specifying the channel 'type' (Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Facebook Profile, Twitter Stream, LinkedIn Company, etc), selecting the user of your site that has permissions to post to that channel (an admin of a Facebook Page, the Twitter user, etc), and ensuring that JFBConnect has proper authorization to post on that user's behalf.

This section will take you through each step in that process.

Social Streams

You can show the feeds from any Channels you've created using the SCSocialStream module. The streams are fully controllable in both output HTML and styles, giving you maximum flexibility over how your Facebook Group, Facebook Page, Twitter Stream or LinkedIn Company feed show in your site.

Manual Posting to a Channel

After you've created your Channels in the JFBConnect administration area, you can manually post to those channels from the front-end. The great thing about the Channels you've created are that you don't need to be logged into the social network when creating the post. You don't even need to be logged into Joomla with the user that 'owns' the channel. JFBConnect will take care of your access tokens and authentication details so that any user with the proper permissions can post to the Channels you've configured.

Automatic posting to a Channel

After you've created your Channels in the JFBConnect administration area, posts can automatically be pushed when content on your page is published. While JFBConnect also allows you to manually push content from your site to any channel, this section covers setting up automated posting of content for several supported extensions.

Social Managers

JFBConnect allows you to easily set which user groups are able to see the Social Toolbar and push content from your site to the configured social channels. By default, these actions are only available to super administrators on your site. If you'd like to allow users in other user groups to be able to manage your social presence as well, please read on.
