How to add Facebook send button to your website

So Facebook have done away with the Share button a few weeks ago and now have launched a Send button instead. The new Send button allows Facebook members to send a page of your content to select friends, groups or email addresses. Great to make links a bit more personal rather than having to use lists or worry about who is seeing what links members post.

To add the new Facebook Send button you just need to paste the following code into your website templates wherever you want the button to appear. If you already have Facebook Like installed on your site just add

send=”true” to your Facebook like code snippet.

Facebook adds on page notifications for admins

What a welcome addition that is bound to make admins’ lives easier! You can now see Notifications when you visit your Facebook page down the right hand side. Click and it will load a stream of notifications so you can see what’s been happening on your page while you were away.

Here’s the blurb from Facebook:

Exposure charity gets lifeline!

Just a few short  months after Haringey Youth Service announced the axing of support for the multi-award winning charity, the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation has earmarked £57,000 to secure the future of the flagship Exposure magazine.

Supporting new ideas and practices that challenge convention and demonstrate an enterprising approach are key funding priorities for the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

The grant serves to underline Exposure’s credentials as a new generation communications beacon, equipped to meet the challenges of an uncertain economic climate.
