How to post campaign to Facebook page - not just a link to my fb page

You used to be able to easily select what social media you wanted to have your campaign post to when you scheduled the campaign. Then CC decided you couldn't do that with a custom template. So I've created a new campaign using a CC template. Now when you try social share, it just links to my social media pages, which doesn't do my any good if my campaign isn't showing up there. How do I get the actual campaign to show up on the FB page like it used to? I've tried Google with no help.

What is wrong with you people?  Why do you have to constantly keep "trying" to reinventing the wheel???  

All I want to do is post my newsletter to my Facebook business page.  Period.  End of subject.  Is that so hard to understand?  I don't want separate little posts and all the crap you show on the social media page.  

So no, your "answer" is just more regurgitation garbage of what is already on CC, which is of no interest to me and absolutely of no help.  

That might be why there are NO votes for this answer!

Hi @MaryK9881. I apologize for any trouble that you might have had trying to find your answer. While the Social Share feature is great for creating multiple posts to be shared out on social media, I think that in your case, the Short URL may be more useful. You can copy the Short URL of any sent campaign and share it on your Facebook business page. I hope this helps!

I am having the same problem. I create a campaign and then once I send it in an email, and then go back to share social share and click on FB it doesn't allow me too.  This is what I get. I need this to be fixed! I have never been able to use with social media since we bought it in November 2018.  Please have someone fix this. 

 

Thank you !
