Ugh, this new social sharing has multiple flaws, but this might be the worst one. The default should NOT make posts unwritten by account holders happen automatically just because one post was set up.
Unless the user selects and writes a schedule, automatic posting from the CC accounts should NEVER happen.
Default should be one post, and subsequent posts must be selected - and saved - in order to be enabled.
I had to delete two cheesy posts I didn't write (with 1990's clip art included, no less) that posted to our feed unwanted. Please, CC -- disable this immediately. We all are working so hard to carefully manage our brands and this kind of unwanted, automatically-posted content just isn't welcome.
1. Would love to see the option of filing and archiving sent emails. This is so helpful when planning out future programs and is sorely lacking with the newer Constant Contact formatting. 2. I love the option of Social Sharing - HOWEVER - if there was a calendar to see ALL social sharing posts for ALL campaigns, that would be extraordinarily helpful. Right now, I can only see the posts per campaign so I have to be extra careful not to put a new social post next to or on top of a previous post scheduled from a week ago.
Hi, When I have the social share set it doesn't go automatically. Instead even after the email is sent it says the message in pending. I have to manually go in and share again. This is for Twitter. It doesn't work at all for Facebook. Can you please fix this glitch?
I tried with one of your advisors, Facebook couldn't find my business page, I found it tonight, copied some things from it, pasted them below... https://www.facebook.com/KenyonArt?fref=ts Brian Kenyon Art Studio Inc.

We recently tried out posting one of our newsletters to Facebook as a test.
When Constant Contact pushed the newsletter to Facebook, we noticed the post in our company Facebook page basically was barebones.
The Facebook page:https://www.facebook.com/smartfinds and is the first post about Hyperlocal Advertising. Unlike our other postings that include text and images, this was a bit surprising.
We clicked on the short URL link of that post and it took us to this web address:
This our newsletter and it has an image and text copy.
After looking at the HTML code of this Constant Contact page, we believe the problem is missing HTML code.
In this case...a DocType declaration at the top would be good....followed by the HTML tag opening and closing tags (top and bottom).
This can further be validated using the W3C HTML Code validator to see what is all wrong with this web page template.
Both of these are 5 minute fixes on the part of Constant Contact and hopefully it won't take a year for someone to resolve this problem.
Look forward to any feedback.
