Blog post to Facebook Feed?

Hi,

I've installed the Perch Blog App, all working fine. How do I get the blog posts to post to a Facebook timeline. There is a meta / social tag which I'm guessing is where Open Graph data goes for each post but where do I add the Facebook page I want to post to? Any help or pointers to documentation appreciated.

Many thanks..

There's nothing in the Blog app to automatically post to Facebook.

Okay, is there any way to post blog posts to a Facebook feed? What is the meta / social tag for?

No, there's nothing in Perch to do that. There are obviously lots of ways to do it outside of Perch, but nothing built in.

The Meta & Social tab has all the attributes for outputting your open graph tags into the page so that when you to post to Facebook, Twitter etc, the embedded preview of the post looks how you want it to.

Thanks for clarifying Drew.
