Social Media Sharing

I'm not going to describe what to do with the Social Media buttons you all probably know better than me - needless to say I would appreciate you using them as much as possible.

However a quick word on how they relate to running up points in the ongoing Cash Prize For Fans competitions.

In short we want to encourage you to spread as far and widely as you can and in places where your friends/followers will notice. For this reason we have got rid of the Facebook Like button - because liking a page doesn't seem to get any interest from Facebook friends. Instead there is a Facebook Share button (the first Facebook square). Please use this it is the most valuable. However please make sure you share on your own timeline and as a full public post (otherwise we will not award full credit).

The second Facebook button (for 'Invite') allows you to invite one or more friends to check out the page you are on. This is included because we track who you've invited in this way and give you credit for all their activity should they take up your invitation and become a fan themselves.

The Twitter button should be fairly obvious and the Google one is not recommended at the moment simply because we haven't developed any way of tracking recommendations and activity about us on Google Plus (yet).

Finally the universal green 'Share' button. This opens some other choices. Recommend to a friend by email is valuable, again because we remember who you're recommended us to and give you credit for their activity should they become a fan. 'Embed Code' is what you should use if you want to place a widget about that page on your own eg blog, email signature, website etc. Similarly the link is to be used if you want to - well er - use a link anywhere. Please note it is worth using this link rather than just copying the URL from the address bar because this one will contain a code to credit you personally with any traffic that follows it.

And that's about it. Get sharing! No seriously - do it! It's pretty much the only way we'll get anywhere so if you like what we do, and want more - do it.
