View As PDF


Once Social Distribution has been installed on your company's Facebook page (which is done during implementation), the company Facebook page admin can configure some aspects of the application.

By default, the Social Distribution app will display as a tab titled Job Openings with a default image on your company’s Facebook page. This tab can be renamed (and be given a new tab image) by the Company page admin using Facebook’s App settings, described below.
