There are a couple of easy ways to integrate your campaign tools with Facebook in order to promote your campaign on social media. Whenever you create a new campaign tool, you'll see an option under the View tab to Activate on Facebook:
The first option you see at the top of the page is our mobile-friendly Facebook Action Form:
Just copy the link to share it on your Facebook page, in a text message, and all over social media. This link creates a clean, simple tool form that looks great on mobile and smoothly reproduces a Facebook look and feel:
You can also reproduce the cover at the top of your Facebook page on this tool form by entering the link to your Facebook page under Add a Facebook Page Header:
This header is fully functional, so visitors will be able to Like your page and Learn More directly from the campaign tool:
The second option you'll see on your Facebook Activation page allows you to embed campaign tools directly into a Facebook page tab. You'll be able to do this with one tool at a time as Facebook only allows one custom Take Action tab per page.
- Have more than 2000 Likes, or
- Be managed by whitelisted apps
All set with those permissions? Then just click the link to Add to Facebook Page. You'll be taken to a screen that prompts you to select which page you'd like to add a tab to:
If you click Add Page Tab and get an error message, you'll know you have more work to do on the Facebook development end. Learn more about setting up custom tabs on Facebook.
If you've got your tab permissions set up correctly, your campaign tool will now appear as a Take Action tab on your organization's Facebook page:
When you share links to this tab, your supporters will have to already be on Facebook, or they will be prompted to login to access the tab. For this reason, the Take Action tab is a great feature for organizations that already have a large Facebook following.
