Facebook Social Sharing on Geni
Today we’re excited to introduce Facebook Social Sharing on Geni – a new way to share your Geni experience with your friends and family!
Have you ever been working on a Geni project and wish you could share your progress with your friends? Or perhaps added your latest census discovery to your ancestor’s Geni profile and wanted to share it with your genealogy Facebook buddies? Facebook Social Sharing will easily allow you to share your public Geni activities with your friends and family on Facebook!
The Facebook Social Sharing button can be found at the top right of any Geni page. By default, Social Sharing is turned off for all current users. To activate the feature, simply click to toggle it on. Everyone may turn Social Sharing off at anytime - just click again to turn it off. Note if you already use Facebook Connect to log in to your Geni account, you will need to toggle it on to begin sharing on Facebook. Don’t see Social Sharing on your Geni page? Only Facebook users will see this option, so connect your Facebook account to your Geni account now to start sharing!
What activities will be shared?
Rest assured that we will never share any private updates on Facebook. This means that any private discussions or edits on private profiles will not appear on your Facebook timeline. Only the following public activities will be shared:
- Starting or replying to a public discussion
- Adding or editing a public document
- Starting or editing a project
- Editing a surname page
- Adding, updating or merging a public profile
Try out Social Sharing now and share your genealogy adventures with all your friends! You never know who may hold the key to unlocking your family history.
