Types of Posts
« on: January 05, 2018, 12:03:08 PM »
Five types of posts are possible for pages, for group, two are available. If you select an unsupported post type for group posting, it will be automatically adjusted and posted as link. 1. Text Post Text post is the default post type. You may think of it as a simple status update. Parameters:

1. Message (Required): Simply enter the text for the post.
2. Link Post A link post appears as link in Facebook. Parameters:
1. Link URL (Required): URL of the Link.
2. Message (Optional): A Message accompanying the Link.
3. Link Title (Optional): Title for the link. If left blank, it will be fetched automatically from the URL.
4. Link Description (Optional): A short description of the link. If left blank, it will be fetched automatically from the URL.
5. Link Caption (Optional): Link caption. If left blank, it will be fetched automatically from the URL.
6. Picture URL (Optional): An image for the link. If left blank, it will be fetched automatically from the URL.

You can specify many fields for the link, and all of them are optional except the link url. A link and its parameters appear as below in the Facebook feed.

3. Image Post You can use online images for publishing to Facebook via this script. Parameters:
1. Image Description (Optional): A message/caption accompanying the image.
2. Image URL (Required): Online URL from where to fetch the image.
You can check “Use Image Proxy” checkbox to use images that watermark or otherwise deny Facebook image fetch. 4. Album Post Album post is almost the same as image post, except that when you click on “POST”, you will need to specify the album to which you want to post for each selected page. Groups do not have albums, nor photos, so for them the post will be published as link.

5. Video Post For video post, you may specify a youtube video url like for example; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3x5ae452 or a url of a video file, or simply a relative path of a video uploaded to the server the script is running in. Remember, the video will be uploaded to page’s videos, and posted as a link for groups. This post type will actually upload the online video to Facebook. Parameters:
1. Video Title (Optional): Title/Caption of the Video.
2. Video Description (Optional): A message/caption/description accompanying the video.
3. Video URL (Required): Online URL from where to fetch the video.
