Customize your promo-post 

  • Where:  Once you have activated your promo-tweet or promo-post (Social channel toggle set to ON under your Paper Settings Dashboard > Promotion & Emails) click in the field "Post text" or "Tweet text". (Screen shot 2010-12-22 at 09.38.05.png New!  In the case of Facebook and LinkedIn, you also choose whether to post to your timeline or to a page you manage!)

  • Customize your tweet or post: Craft your tweet or post in the text field within the character limit set by the social media channel.  Include #hashtags to help other users find your tweet or post.  A count of your remaining characters is noted on the bottom right of the text field.   

  • Twitter mentions:  You have the option to include or not include mentions in your tweet by turning the toggle button on or off.  Note that the mentions shown in the preview are examples only and will not necessarily be the same as shown in the final promo tweet.

  • Twitter mentions intro text:  You may customize the text before the mentions to be other than the default "Stories via", such as "Thanks to...." or "Shared by...", etc.  

  • Chose what to promote on LinkedIn and Facebook: For Facebook and/or LinkedIn posts, choose whether to share headline article or paper information.  In either case, the link will take the reader back to your paper.  

  • Save: When you are done with your editing, click the Screen_Shot_2014-04-13_at_9.23.27_AM.png button.
