Special Facebook posting campaign settingsGiven that you already know what is a posting campaign and how to create one, in this section you will learn about specific settings which can be used in Facebook posting campaign.
'Facebook account' tab
First of all in 'Facebook account' tab you have to authenticate your Facebook account. Press AUTHENTICATE button and follow all provided steps.
Please, grant all requested permissions for RSS Ground app, they are all critical for successful Facebook posting.
As soon as you are authenticated you will see a list of all Facebook pages, groups and events you own or administrate. You can checkmark one or several of them (up to 10 in one posting campaign) where you wish to make your posts to.
When you are done with selecting pages, groups and events press NEXT.
In Settings tab you set up posting features. They are all optional and can be used by default.
First you name your posting campaign. Be specific, make sure you will recognize a needed posting campaign among others.
Include keywords - specify one or several content filter keywords. Only content which mentions at least one of the specified keywords in its title or description will be posted.
Exclude keywords - specify one or several content filter keywords. Content which mentions at least one of the specified keywords in its title or description will be excluded from posting.
Post items - here you set the order in which content from your specified feeds will be processed and selected for posting.
- Only new - only newly added content after the previous campaign run will be processed and posted.
- From newest to oldest - if there is no newly added content other not posted content from the feeds will be processed starting from the most recent.
- From oldest to newest - content will be processed and posted starting from the oldest.
- Randomly - a random content from specified feeds will be processed and posted.
If you wish to post only fresh content to your Facebook account you are recommended to use 'Only new' option.
If you wish to ensure the gradual update of your Facebook pages, you are recommended to use 'From newest to oldest' option.
If you make posts from content feeds where timestamp does not matter, for example product feeds or affiliate feeds, you may use 'Random' option.
Number of items to post – here you set how many Facebook posts you wish to make at a time. 2-2 means 2 posts with each posting campaign run. 1-3 means a random number of posts from 1 to 3 will be made. Random posts number can add a unique pattern to your posting activity, to make it look more like a human behavior.
Append to links - append any tag or parameter to links posted to Facebook. This can be any affiliate ID, tracking tags or anything else.
Pay attention to the syntax we use. For example you want to add a query string: ?param=value, enter only param=value to the text field. Or if you use a separated parameter:¶m2=value, you only enter param2=value.
But be careful with link fragments. If you want to add a fragment to your links you have to enter #your_fragment. Without hash symbol (#) it will be counted as a query string parameter which is totally different.
Read more about query strings and fragments.
Automation and saving
On the last step you set your posting interval and schedule campaign start and stop (if needed).
After you are done with all posting campaign settings, including automation, press SAVE CAMPAIGN button.
Your Facebook posting campaigns will be saved in My Account - Posting Campaigns section.
