Social Media and Ingeniux

Social media can be an effective communication tool to communicate with students. When your department shares a page from their website on social media, content is displayed automatically but you can control what content is shared. For an easier and more accurate way to share content from your department's website, use the following tutorial.

This is an example of what the content would look like on Facebook before you make changes on the "byui.edu/art/advising" webpage.

You can also see what Facebook is showing for your page by visiting the "Sharing Debugger." Enter the URL of a page, then request to "Scrape Again". This also updates the metadata facebook uses for shares in the real world.
