Our latest update to JustGiving, helping you raise even more, is Facebook Connect.
Now, when you make a donation on someone’s JustGiving page, you can log in to Facebook and post your donation on your Facebook wall and your friends’ newsfeeds in just a few clicks.
This means it’s faster than ever to spread the word about the causes you support. Your friends can see your donation and you can inspire them to donate too – so you’ll be able to give your friends and family a big boost towards reaching their fundraising target.
Here’s how it works
After you’ve made your donation on JustGiving, you’re given the option of sharing your donation with your Facebook friends.
Then, once you’ve logged in to Facebook, you’ll see the option to post a little note on your wall and in your friends’ newsfeeds, letting them know that you’ve made a donation on your friend’s page and the charity you’ve supported.
If you like, you can add your own message to go with the post – to tell other people to support your friend, or just to repeat the supportive (or funny) message you left on their fundraising page. The image from the JustGiving page will show automatically, helping your friends to recognise the person fundraising.
Here’s how your post looks on Facebook
Around 30% of visitors to JustGiving come from Facebook – it’s one of the best places to spread the word about your fundraising and encourage those much-needed donations. Our Facebook application is already used by over 400,000 people – and now the extra ability to share your donation with Facebook Connect means even more people will be able to use the world’s most popular social network to help fundraisers and charities increase awareness and raise more money.
