Today Artez Interactive is excited to launch a new Facebook app enabling donors to share the charities and social causes they support via an integration with Facebook Platform.
The Artez Interactive App for Facebook Timeline makes it possible for people to share their donation activities with their family and friends on Facebook.
The app was announced at f8, Facebook's developer conference in September 2011, with launch partners Free The Children, Canadian Diabetes Association, Kids Help Phone, SickKids Foundation, and the Leukaemia Foundation of Australia. After much anticipation, it is now available to other select charities.
How does it work?
When a charity's website has enabled the new app, their donors will see a Facebook message box after completing a donation.
A donor can choose to "Spread the Word" allowing them to tell their friends they've donated online. When someone installs the app, they can choose who can see their activity with that app and can always edit their settings from the Application Settings Page on Facebook, or remove specific activity directly from Timeline or through their personal Activity Log on Facebook.
After agreeing to "post my Donation to my Facebook Timeline", a donor's Facebook Timeline is updated with "[Donor Name] has donated to [Charity Name] with Artez Interactive." No confidential information or contribution amounts will be posted.
The donation action message can also be viewed in their friends' Tickers and News Feeds.
When a donor's Facebook friends click on the donation post they are taken to the charity's donation form.
Why use the app?
The Artez Interactive App for Facebook Timeline benefits both donors and nonprofit organizations.
Donors are able to publish their charitable activities on Facebook, encouraging friends to participate and support great causes. These activities also amplify a charity's reach, putting fundraising campaigns in front of a wider audience online and allowing people to discover new charities that interest them.
The release of this app follows several new Facebook-related fundraising features in the Artez System.
Artez clients already benefit from Donation with Facebook, Donation with Facebook on Mobile Web, and Registration with Facebook in online fundraising campaigns!
