Social media teaser

The social media teaser contains Social Teaser Title and Social Teaser Introduction. Once the fields in the Social Teaser Title and Introduction are updated, the Facebook site associated with the Pangea site will automatically extract and populate the Facebook site.

Social media teaser can be found on the bottom of the page, under “Content” tab within video edit page. More optimization for the social media teaser is also possible using the Social Teaser Graphic. It allows the content to have its unique image description.

Pangea to Facebook live streaming

After the Facebook distribution account is created live streaming using Pangea to Facebook is possible using the Pangea’s Video Scheduler. This requires updating the TV Template week under Video Scheduler in “Template Week” for specific live shows listed for Facebook live streaming.

A check box is readily available for Facebook Live stream called “Facebook Broadcast”. It must be checked for live streaming.

Also from the drop down menu on the “Facebook Account” the Facebook distribution name of the show set for streaming should be selected.

Setting up the “Broadcast time” should be determined in local time to match the time set in scheduler.

In the “Update Schedule from Template” weekly broadcast days need to be updated to reflect changes made in all the days and upcoming weeks in the TV template week scheduler simply by choosing starting and ending days.
