SHARING FROM THE RIGHT ACCOUNT
To double check you will be posting from the right social media account:
Visit your chosen social media account
Sign into the social account you would like to share from.
That’s it. Once you have double checked that you are signed into the right account, when you share your pet listings through the Petfinder Pro Dashboard they will be automatically post from this account.
HAVING TROUBLE WITH YOUR SOCIAL ACCOUNTS?
Are you signed in to your social account in a different browser (other than the one the Pro Dashboard is open in). Choose a single browser such as Safari, Chrome, FireFox, etc. to work in while using the Petfinder Pro Dashboard.
If using your group's social media account, do you have the most recent login information from your shelter or rescue group? If the login information isn’t working, you’ll need to get in touch with your organization — Social media account information is not stored within the Petfinder Pro Dashboard.
