Tips for Facebook Users:
Logo: Load your association logo under Setup->Organization Information in order to have your logo display next to the Facebook posts. Without a logo uploaded, the post will display a “Powered by ChamberMaster” logo.
Event posting: The Search Description field on Events->General tab determines the phrase that appears at the bottom of the Facebook post. This field is populating the event META data which should result in more favorable Search Engine ranking over time. Use descriptive, precise phrases in this field for best results. If no data is saved in this field, the first 160 characters of the Event Description is used for the Facebook post. Search engine ranking is not directly affected by this field. The Search Description field is available to those with v2 or v3 public modules.
Event image: The Main Event Photo found on the Events->General tab under Photos and Images is being suggested to Facebook as the appropriate image to use in the event post.
Tips for all Social Network Users
Issues with posts not appearing are often solved by disconnecting from the social network service and then reconnecting again. These 3rd party companies will occasionally adjust their code which might cause our connection with them to be interrupted. Simply re-doing the connection often solves the problem.
