Classy offers control over the pre-populated messages supporters can share with their networks through social media, email, and text (SMS).

From your main organization Dashboard, navigate to your Campaigns tab and open the relevant campaign.

Facebook


The Facebook share option allows you to customize how your campaign is displayed when it's shared on Facebook. You can pick which image is displayed 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.

Twitter

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. We recommend that you use a bit.ly link to track the success of these messages.

Email Share

You also have the ability to customize both the subject line and message that auto-populate in the email template when your supporters choose to share the campaign via email. This text will be followed by the campaign description that is entered in the About the Campaign section along with the campaign URL.
