Social integration is now live, this means that from your admin you can now post messages, images and links across all of the social networks you have connected to. Follow this simple guide to connect your Scrumpy website to Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
The Facebook integration means that we’ll automatically populate your Facebook page’s photos with albums featuring all of your properties images with links backs to your site. In addition to this it will also automatically publish blog articles and add a Facebook comment feed beneath blog articles to increase social exposure. The Pinterest integration also means that we’ll automatically create boards for each property and pin your properties images with links back to your site.
These are just a handful of the new social features. For more information and a full list a features see our Update 1.8.0 blog post! We have put together a small guide on how to link your Scrumpy website to the various social networks:
