Sharing Your Affiliate Links on Facebook

Facebook Images for All Solutions Network Pages. Sharing Your Affiliate Links on Facebook:
How many times has this happened to you? Full of excitement about your new affiliate opportunity, you go to share the link on Facebook and Facebook acts like they have never heard of it. In a way, that is exactly what has happened. Facebook uses the Open Graph Protocol to determine what is displayed when you share a link. If it has never been shared before, Facebook displays a minimum amount of information.

What Facebook Wants:
Facebook is looking for five or six basic pieces of information that should be part of the website as “meta” data. These are: og:url, og:type, og:title, og:description and the og:image. The specifics of setting these up for your website are not part of today's goals. Hopefully, the people designing your site have provided the right info. If not, Facebook takes a best guess.

What Facebook Sees:
To learn how Facebook sees your Link, use the Facebook Sharing Debugger. Open the page, paste your Affiliate Link next to the box marked [Enter URL] and Click [Debug]. If the page hasn't been shared on Facebook before, Click [Fetch new information]. Then Click the button on the “Time Scraped” line [Scrape Again] to make Facebook take a second look. If it has been shared before, I recommend hitting the Button [Scrape Again] to make sure that you are up to date.

*Note: Even when you have shared your link previously, it is sometimes necessary to repeat this process to get your link to display properly.

No Image or Undesirable Image:
If the Link Preview of the Facebook Sharing Debugger shows no image or an image that does not work for you, all is not lost. Just create your new post on your Fan Page.

Why You Should Have a Facebook Fan Page:
Every person doing business online with Facebook should be using a Fan Page. They are easy to set up and they will help keep you out of trouble with Facebook. Besides, it is only when creating a post on a Fan Page that you are allowed to use your own images for the post, even when no images exist.

Why Create a Facebook Fan Page – A quick over-view of Fan Pages and how to set up a community page.

Have You Claimed Your Public Figure Fan Page – Why a Public Figure Fan Page may be the better choice and how to set it up.

The Fan Page Posting Process:
1) Copy the desired Image(s) to your Computer. I recommend a Folder for your Facebook Posts.
2) On your Fan Page, paste your Affiliate Link in the Status Box.
3) If you happen to like one of the images offered, simply deselect the others. If you want to use one from your computer, Click the Empty Box below "available images". Select the image to upload from your computer. Deselect all other images.
4) Write something to present this post. Try to keep it to four or five lines. Or, make it so interesting that they Must click the See More button.
5) When the post is prepared, Click [Publish].

Example Post with Optional Image

Now you can easily share your post with your image to your timeline, your fan pages, Groups and Messenger. *Note: Links for Messenger should always be shared from existing posts.*

 *Important: Use the complete Affiliate Link for Facebook posts. Facebook doesn't like the redirects common to URL Shorteners.*

 Images That Work With Facebook:
For normal Facebook Posts, you are only allowed to use static images. Jaypeg (.jpg & .jpeg) and Ping (.png) images work best. Square Images, from 200x200 Pixels to 1200x1200, are displayed to the left side of your post. (250x250 and 1000x1000 seem to work best.) For the full width display, use 1200x627. Recently we have been allowed to use animated GIFs (.gif) but only by pasting the Image URL into the post and the link created goes to the image source.

More Photo Options on Your Fan Page:
On your timeline, your only options are to Upload Photo/Video or Create Photo Album. On your Fan Page, you can also: Create a Photo Carousel; Create Slideshow or Create a Canvas.

Create a Photo Carousel:
With the Create a Photo Carousel option, you can create a sequence of images for a designated URL, that ends in your Fan Page Profile Image and a “see more” note for the base URL.

Example Photo Carousel

Create Slideshow:
Your fan page also gives you the option of creating a slideshow of three to seven images in Square, 1:1 or Rectangle, 16:9 aspect ratio with a duration of 1 to 5 seconds. This tool creates a short Video slideshow of your select images. The images can be taken from your Fan Page Photos or uploaded from your computer.

Example Slideshow Video

Create a Canvas:
This one is totally new for me. I am going to leave this to Facebook.

Search = Create a Facebook Canvas

Part of making your Social Networks work for you is knowing how they work. We know that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. By the same token, the wrong picture can send the wrong message. If you don't like the images shared with your Affiliate Links, you have options.
