To ensure that communication on Facebook profiles and groups remains at a personal level, Facebook has restricted automatic publication on personal Facebook profiles and groups for all social media tools.
In order to continue sharing content with your followers via Blog2Social, we provide you with Blog2Social Facebook Instant Sharing.

Please note:
pages are not affected by the new Facebook policy change and will continue to be delivered by the regular automation process.

How to use Facebook Instant Sharing

Share your post immediately

If you wish to share your post immediately on your Facebook profile / group click “Share” in the edit mask and the following message will appear:


When you click on "Share", the Facebook-Instant-Sharing-Window will open in a second window. If you are not already logged in to Facebook, you will be requested to log in first. 

If you manage more than one Facebook profile, please make sure you are logged in to the correct Facebook profile before posting.


Blog2Social automatically loads the link to your selected post. The Facebook link preview shows you how your post will appear on Facebook.

You can now insert your desired comment text, individual hashtags or even emojis in the field "Say something about it...". You can also use @handles to mark your friends or add activities.

Left at the top of the menu you can choose where your post should be shared.


You can show your feelings/activity, if you like.


You can also add your location, if you like.


You can also mark people with the "Tag Friends" function.


Now you can choose who should see your article in your news feed.


Schedule your post

When you scheduled a post, you will find it in the menu bar by clicking the “Scheduled Posts” tab. On your scheduled date the post will be moved to the "Instant Sharing" section. If you wish your post to be published now, you can simply click on "Share".

A notification bubble is displayed next to the "Instant Sharing" tab. A number will be displayed next to the tab "Instant Sharing" as soon as a Facebook post is awaiting your manual share that is scheduled for a specific date. If you wish your post to be published now, you can simply click on "Share".


When you click "Share", the Facebook Instant Sharing window will open.


Now you can customize and share your Facebook posts in the Facebook Instant Sharing window as described above.

NEW: You can now also share your post in your Facebook story. There you can also select who should see your post.


If you are happy with your Facebook post, click on “Post to Facebook” to share your post directly on Facebook.
Please keep in mind: In order to share a blog post or page, make sure that your blog post or page has been published and is public, to be shared on Facebook with Instant Sharing.


What if I missed my scheduled date?

Don't worry, your post won't disappear if you missed your scheduled date. It remains in the "Instant Sharing" section and can be shared at any time.
