What is SocialConnect for Facebook?
YourMembership.com's SocialConnectTM for Facebook® helps members virally promote ODSA across Facebook.
The SocialConnect add-on to YourMembership.com leverages the Facebook Connect technology, allowing members to sign-in to the ODSA organization's private online community using their Facebook credentials (username/password). Also, once signed in, ODSA members have the option to post updates to their personal Facebook wall when they perform any of the following actions within the ODSA organization's YourMembership.com private community:
- Post or comment on community blogs
- Post or comment on group blogs
- Post or comment on personal blogs
- Upload photos to a group gallery
- Upload photos to their personal galleries
- Promote an event they see on your website
- Promote a donation fund they see on your website
- Update their personal profiles
- Post personal files or links
- Post job openings within your career center
- Update their resumés/CVs within their personal profiles
- Comment on news they have read on your website
- Post to a community forum
- Post to a group forum
As ODSA members promote our organization's activities on the walls of their Facebook profiles, these updates are included on the Facebook feeds of all their connected friends. The more information we share across open social networking websites like Facebook, the greater the opportunity to drive traffic back to our organization's private online community -- thus increasing member registrations, interactions, transactions and brand recognition for our organization!

Yes, though a member's Facebook wall may feature links to content on your organization's private community, access to private content is controlled by your community's security settings. To access private content, individuals must be registered and approved members. Therefore, the posting of this content by your members may help entice people to join our community but will not expose secure content.
