One of our most frequent calls from members on using the REALTOR® Content Resource (RCR®) is how to share articles on a Facebook Page rather than your personal profile. If you simply follow the steps as outlined, you aren’t given the option of choosing where to share. This is a limitation from Facebook’s side of the fence unfortunately. However, there are a few work-arounds to share articles to your business page.
1. Once signed in to RCR® and you find an article you would like to share, simply click on the articles title. This should bring the full article up in a new window. In the upper right corner there is a ‘quickshare’ with links to Facebook, Twitter and email. Click on the Facebook icon. Another window should open in your browser. In here you can select where you want to share this article – on your own wall, a friend’s wall, a group, or (most importantly) a page that you manage.
2. Option two is to go thru the standard steps to select an article, chose how to share it and then share it on your own personal Facebook profile. As you’re doing this you can select who can see this post. I would suggestion using the custom filter and making it visible only to yourself. Then once it’s on your wall you can then share it from there over to your business page and then delete it from your personal wall. It’s a few more steps, but this way you will see exactly how the article will look on your wall before sharing it over.
3. If you’d rather not deal with any of that, you can always go directly to houselogic.com and find the article there, copy the URL from the address bar and paste it into a post just like you would with any other article you come across online.
I’ve made a quick 6 minute video that demos all of this. Hope this is helpful!
