    How to share uploaded image to Facebook via a share link on the Thank-You page

    Asked by b2dmarketing on January 22, 2016 at 11:52 PM

    In addition, at the end of the form, I would like there to be a link that says "Share This" and when a user clicks share this, it creates a facebook post using the image they uploaded. How I would do this is as follows. I have used this code generator that generates a long url and when you go to that url it populates the facebook share form with the info you entered.

    Here is the website

    http://donordigital.com/services/socialshare/

    For the image url, I entered this.

    https://www.jotform.us/uploads/b2dmarketing/60216175609151/{id}/{takeSelfie}

    however, it that url does not seem to be generating a image, instead it defaults to the website share image

    I have used the website(http://donordigital.com/services/socialshare/) you have provided and was able to produce a link for the image I have uploaded in my example on the original thread. 

    https://www.facebook.com/dialog/feed?app_id=694165360698061&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.insert-url-to-share-here.com&picture=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.jotformpro.com%2Fuploads%2FMike_G%2F60218344839964%2F329332644142241478%2F1.jpg&name=This%20is%20a%20Sample%20Title&caption=%20&description=This%20is%20a%20Facebook%20description.&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F

    You'll just have to change the value for picture to https://www.jotform.us/uploads/b2dmarketing/60216175609151/{id}/{FILENAME:takeSelfie}

    after you have generated the link from that website.

    You can change the link generated from the website to this instead:

    https://www.facebook.com/dialog/feed?app_id=694165360698061&link=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.insert-url-to-share-here.com&picture=https://www.jotform.us/uploads/b2dmarketing/60216175609151/{id}/{FILENAME:takeSelfie}&name=My%20Selfie&caption=%20&description=This%20is%20a%20Selfie%20uploaded%20via%20Jotform.&redirect_uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2F

    You can also, change the value of name, caption and description.

    You can also have the caption added from your form. Then just add {caption} to the value of caption in the link.

    Please check this Demo Form and make a submission. On the Thank-You page, click the link: "Share Selfie to Facebook.

    Here's the Demo Form: https://form.jotform.com/60218344839964

    I hope this helps. Let us know if you need any further assistance. 

    Thank you.
