Social Media for Impact Austin Members

Welcome to the wonderful world of social media!  You may be a founding member or you may have just joined yesterday, but you can be real force for Impact Austin in your everyday interactions online.

Let’s begin with Facebook.

First Step:  If you are on Facebook and have an account, search for Impact Austin’s Facebook page and click the “Like” button.  You will automatically “Follow” Impact Austin’s posts and they should appear in your newsfeed each time we post.

Impact Austin’s posts will appear in your newsfeed, but also should appear in your “Pages” notifications on the left side of your Home page. Place your cursor to the left of “Pages Feed” and you can choose to put that in your “Favorites” which appear at the top left of your Home page. This is a great way to keep track of Impact Austin and other pages you follow.

Second Step: Go to Impact Austin’s page, and the drop down menu under “Liked” will allow you to “Get Notifications” and see Impact Austin’s posts first!  

When Impact Austin’s posts appear in your newsfeed, click on them and read them of course, but we also encourage you to “Like” them, “Comment” on them and even more importantly to “Share” them. 

Sharing a post lets your friends know that you are involved and supporting Impact Austin, and is a great way to invite them to any events you are going to attend. 

It exponentially raises awareness of Impact Austin and costs nothing.

What a deal!

Third Step:  To share an Impact Austin post with your friends, click “Share” at the bottom of the post. The following three pictures show you:

1.) What will pop up. 2.) That you should add your own message to it before sharing. 3.) What it will look like on your profile page and newsfeed!


There, you did it!

Thank you and we look forward to seeing your “Likes,” “Comments,” and “Shares” soon!
