  3. 3.

  4. 4. Broadcast<br />Components<br /> Select channel to publish to<br />A channel relates to either Facebook or Twitter. If <br />you wish to send to both Facebook and Twitter, <br />simply fill in the message details for both channels. <br />The Post Description and Delivery Time will be the same for both channels. If you wish to send<br />messages to Facebook and Twitter with different Post Descriptions or Delivery Times, you need to <br />publish two separate deliveries.<br /> Select account(s) to publish to<br />Comufy lets you publish to multiple accounts at the same time. Click on the account(s) that you <br />wish the message to be published from. In this example, we have selected the Tweetswitch account <br />for Facebook. If you have multiple accounts, you can filter using the search bar.<br />

Broadcast<br />Components<br /> Send / schedule message<br />Click ‘Send’ to publish your message now or ‘Schedule’ to publish your message at a specific date <br />and time.<br />Please note, this button will send / schedule both your Facebook and Twitter message at the <br />same time.<br />Once your message has been sent / scheduled you will be taken to a confirmation screen.<br />
  6. 6. Broadcast to Facebook<br />Status<br />Once you have selected your Facebook account(s) to publish from, you have the option of publishing a <br />‘status’ update or a ‘photo’ update.<br />The status update is a simple, plain text update.<br />
  7. 7. Broadcast to Facebook<br />Photo<br />The ‘photo’ update allows you to be much more flexible and descriptive with your message. In addition to <br />the status text, you can select an image to post with the status. <br />You have the ability to add text alongside the image. This includes a Headline, a Caption and a Description. <br />Finally, you are able to assign a URL to the image and the Headline.<br />To select an image for your post, click on the visible image. <br />By default, this image will be the most recently posted. <br />There are three options to select an image.<br />1 – choose a recent image, displayed <br />2 – click the upload / up arrow button to select an image from your computer<br />3 – enter a URL into the ‘Location’ box and click off the box<br />
  8. 8. Broadcast to Facebook<br />Geo-targeting<br />Geo-targeting allows your messages to only be visible to your Facebook Fans in certain countries, or <br />country groups. To apply geo-targeting, simply select the countries from the geo-targeting dropdown. <br />For more information on setting up country groups, please see the Settings document.<br />
  9. 9. Broadcast to Twitter<br />Status<br />Once you have selected your Twitter account(s) to publish from, you then compose your tweet. <br />A tweet must be 140 characters or less. Any URLs that are to be shortened will be shortened to a <br />maximum of 20 characters, i.e. if your tweet contains one short URL, you have 120 characters to write <br />with.<br />
  10. 10. Broadcast<br />Short URLs<br />When publishing a message, any URLs that are typed starting ‘http://’ or ‘https://’ will automatically be <br />shortened and tracked by Comufy’s analytics platform. <br />If you do not have an integrated short URL associated with your account, the Comufy short URL<br />will be used. Alternatively, we are able to integrate your own URL shortener or enterprise URL.<br />
