The new Facebook share option allows you to customize how your campaign is displayed when it's shared on Facebook. You can pick which image will display on Facebook from the pre-populated list of images pulled from the featured media on your campaign landing page.

You also have the option of editing the description of your campaign. This powerful tool allows you to customize what your supporters' networks will see in the description of the thumbnail when your campaign is shared on Facebook. Facebook will display 160-300 characters, depending on the page type.

6. Twitter Share

Enter the pre-populated message that appears when supporters share your campaign on Twitter. Twitter messages can be no more than 140 characters long. Because the campaign URL is not automatically included in the share message, please make sure you've included the URL in the share message. (How to find your URL) We do recommend that you use a bit.ly link to track the success of these messages.

Due to a rapidly growing trend towards mobile giving, we now offer the ability for supporters to share your campaigns through mobile text.

*Note: Please keep in mind that you must include the campaign URL within the text message as it is not automatically pulled in. (How to find your URL) Again, we recommend shortening the URL using Bit.ly or similar link-tracking or shortening service.
