In addition to being a great place to socialize, Facebook is ideal for presenting your portfolios and recent projects to the people in your network! It's easy to post your Viewbook albums to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, or anywhere online with just a few clicks.
Step 1. Style your album for embed
Create and style your album for optimum display as a widget. A good starting point is activating the options bar, with the 'play', 'full screen' and 'share' options. To display your images a bit larger, disable the "frame margin" in the embed section of the style album settings.
You could also add a title or end image that includes your website url, your name, or a logo.
If you've entered an Album 'title' and 'description' under the 'Settings' button they will become the title and description in your post.
Step 2. Share your album!
Click 'Share' near the top right of the image manager. A dialogue box will pop up with a bunch of social media icons next to a prompt that says 'post to.'
Click one of the icons. You will be guided through an authentication process, and the rest takes care of itself.
"There is no icon for FriendFace!" Don't worry. If we don't have a button for your favorite social media outlet you can always copy the embed code from the share dialog box and paste it into any blog, service, or whatever. Highlight the entire iframe in the embed box, copy it, and paste it. Done.
It is only possible to post and export to personal Facebook profiles at this time. We are looking into other possibilities for the future.
