Atavist projects are designed to shared. Each project has a Promote page that allows you to set up unique text, images, and links. These will be used when a reader of your project clicks the Twitter or Facebook icons on the project.
Manage your project's share settings
Head inside a project, then to Publish, then Promote.
Enable Sharing Icons
Toggle these buttons on, and the icons will appear on your project page. You can select to include both, either Facebook or Twitter, or neither if you please.
Social Title and Social Description
This text will accompany your link in both Facebook and Twitter posts, to help provide details for the project.
In Facebook, the title and description will appear as such:
It’s important to note that this is essential if you have used a video title design, since Facebook may try to pull metadata from the video, resulting with a mess of code in the description space.
In Twitter, you’ll see the title and description in the feed:
Craft a tweet for your readers. As you can see, readers can edit if they want, or they can share immediately. On Promote, the box will tell you how many characters you have remaining; remember, the link will take up a certain amount of characters unless you opt for a custom share link.
Upload a custom share link, from a service like bit.ly.
Finally, in Promote, you can add a custom image for sharing.
This is great for users who have used a video title design, and need a static image for social sites. However, it’s also ideal for magazines or any businesses who want to add branding to the image; for example, The Atavist Magazine likes to include the title of the story and our name in a custom image.
