August 12, 2010

Get the most out of your Walk Fundraising by downloading the Facebook JDRF Walk Application!

It’s an easy way to allow your social networking pals to become your Walk donors!  Reach new (and old) friends like never before!  Download the App today.

Step by Step Instructions and Tips on how to use this App

For those who have installed the application before, the upgrade should be seamless.

  • When you click the setup tab you will see your username and password fields for linking your Facebook account with your walk account, your pre-event notification block and you will also see the additional notification block for after-event notifications. If you are okay with these settings you do not have to make any changes and your pre-event notifications will continue as they did before. Your after-event notifications will begin according to the default setting. (can they change the after-event settings?)
  • If you would like to add your JDRF Walk tab to your profile page you would go to your profile page.
    • Locate the tabs listed horizontally across the top of your profile.
    • Click the “+” icon next to the rightmost tab. If you don’t see “JDRF Walk Fundraising” in the list of options, enter “JDRF” as search criteria.
    • Select JDRF Walk Fundraising. The tab should appear on the far right, titled “JDRF Walk Fundraising.”

For those who have never installed the application before, here are instructions.

Some additional tips for using Facebook to enhance JDRF’s visibility:

  • Become a fan of JDRF. People will see it on your page and click to find out more about our mission.
  • Add JDRF to your Causes. Belonging to a Cause allows you to recruit other members.
  • Add JDRF Flair! If you have a corkboard, search Flair for “JDRF”.  You will see our festive blue sneaker, among others.
  • Embed your JDRF video – or if you don’t have one, embed someone else’s! A search of YouTube brings up dozens of inspirational videos. Share those with all of your friends with regular uploads! Visit our YouTube page.
