Updates to Facebook, Including Integrated Facebook Page Sharing

April 17, 2015

Facebook's current API is being retired, so as of today, Typepad is using its most current version.

This will be a seamless change for most of you, so you don't need to worry about anything.  However, if you experienced an issue where you received a message about your account being invalid, we think the new changes should stop this from occurring.  If you continue to see this, please open a help ticket.

Most importantly, though, we now have integrated Facebook Page sharing!

If you've posted to your fan or business Facebook Page through Typepad before, you know that this meant using a third-party platform like IFTTT or RSS Graffiti.  Now, you can do this all through Typepad!

To get started, go to Settings > Sharing and click the "Connect your blog to Facebook" link.  Once you do that, you'll see the following:

Fbconnect1

Click the Connect button and you'll see a blue Like box that you need to check.  (If this button already shows a check mark, click the check mark to uncheck the button.)  Once you do that, this will initiate the integration process.  You can select an existing Page you manage from the drop down that loads or create a new Page on Facebook.

After you've completed this process, you can now choose to always publish your posts to Facebook automatically.  This means that any posts sent by a mobile device, the Compose editor, or e-mail will show up on your Facebook Page without you needing to do anything else.  If you would prefer to choose on a post-by-post basis whether to share it or not, leave this box unchecked.

Now when you Compose a new post, you'll see the option to share your post to your Page!

We hope you're as excited as we are about sharing your posts to your Facebook Page!
