Business Consulting For The 21st Century Via A Holistic & Intelligent Approach

AU_WPing notched up yet again

Each step forward shines light on new ground. In this case it’s Facebook and updating Fan Pages via email. The trick being that when sending an update with an image attached, FB will also provide the Share link when such Page updates show up in a person’s News Feed. No image, no Share, no good. Making it easy for people to Share is what social media is all about.

With this in mind, AU_WPing now allows for a default image to be attached if a post level image isn’t specified. (The 0.7.6 release it’s still in beta. I have not yet installed in on ChiefAlchemist.com. I mention this in case you’re wondering why this post in your FB News Feed didn’t have a Share.)

Also, as of this post, FB does not allow .png image files to be used in update via email. If you attach a .png FB will just ignore the image but still update the Page status. I didn’t have any problems with .jpg. I didn’t try .gif so I’m not sure about that file type.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it but AU_WPing has been kickin’ ass on Killington Year Round! Simply brilliant!!
