Getting ACParadise to post automatically to your Facebook Pages via RSS

INTEGRATION OF ACP TO YOUR FACEBOOK
We noticed a recent epidemic in Cosplay Fan Pages on Facebook, but did you know that ACParadise can automatically publish your recent costume updates on to your shiny new FB fan page? We have the instructions handy below. Of course if you're internet-inept, you can request that Woone Kao do it for you, but you'd need to set woonekao at aim.com as admin.

What are the benefits of RSS INTEGRATION?
1. Updating ACP results in automatic updates to your Facebook (and twitter too if you joined those accounts). Get two/three for one!
2. Links to your HI RES photos are available from your ACParadise
3. If you are concerned about Facebook's non-exclusive, transferable, sub-licensable, royalty-free, worldwide license on your photos uploaded to your page this is a great alternative.
4. Less use of the "Share This" button on ACP as it will automatically be shared.
5. Drive traffic to your ACParadise account.

Tell us if you got it done (and tested it) so we can add your page to this list!



WHAT IS RSS?
RSS stands for RSS Really Simple Stalking Syndication, and if you have an ACParadise cosplayer or photographer profile, you have a RSS code. Simply use this code on your favorite social networking site to get your cosplay updates to display automatically whenever you update your ACParadise.

WHY WOULD I USE RSS?
Say you got a twitter, livejournal, facebook, and cosplay fan page on facebook. Updating each and everyone of those with your cosplay can be a real pain. But with RSS, just by updating your ACParadise, ALL of them will get updated for you!* This is quite the ideal situation if you have cosplay specific twitters or facebooks, and want your fans to keep updated when you update your ACParadise account!

BUT I'M A PHOTOGRAPHER!
RSS is compatible with ACSnapshots accounts too! Automatically post your gallery and photoshoot updates right to your social media site!


Since every social network site operates a little bit differently, scroll through the instruction set for all the details on how you can add RSS. It won't take you that long to put in, and will save you a ton of time down the line.
