November 2: Automatically Fetch HD Video from Web Page and Post it to Facebook

Video marketing on Facebook is an amazing way to increase user engagement, drive traffic and generate tons of leads/sales for your business. According to Search Engine Journal, "Facebook videos reach 2 times more people, receive 2.38 times more likes, 2.67 times more shares, and 7.43 times more comments than YouTube embeds." 

Now with Fan Page Robot, you can fetch any video from a web page (not just YouTube) and get it ready for Facebook with just one click.

First, enter a video page URL (or use the Video Search feature to generate video content). We support pretty much any major social media, video or news sites, such as YouTube, Twitter/Vine, Facebook, CNN, Yahoo, Imgur, IMDB, Sound Cloud, Udemy, College Humor, 9gag, etc.

Then click on the video icon next to the URL input box. 

Auto post to Facebook

As long as the webpage has a video, the Robot can fetch it and convert it to a native Facebook video with the best available quality when you publish the post to Facebook.  

WARNING: Use this feature responsibly. DO NOT post any copyrighted videos, or your page will be suspended by Facebook.

After you enable the "Notify Me" option in Content Mixer, we'll notify you by email when hot, new content is available. Now you can directly publish content from the notification email.

March 16: Ability to Automatically Load Full-Text Content from Webpages

While we're busy working on a new lead generation feature, we’ve recently released some improvements on the existing features. 

With the Content Generator on Fan Page Robot, now you can enter the URL of an article and it will extract the main article from the webpage. If you enter the URL of a category page or homepage of a website, the Robot will find the latest articles on the page, go to each of them, and extract the full-content from the articles. The full content the Robot loads for you is ad-free and well-formatted.

It works for all languages.

Use Cases

1. Autopost Content From A Category

When you want to share multiple articles from a category, or want Fan Page Robot to notify you or autopost the articles from the category once it has new updates, you can enter the URL of the category page, e.g. http://www.reuters.com/news/world. The Robot will try to load the summary feed (default feed) that is provided by the website first. Then you can choose to load the full-content feed which is generated by the Robot.

2. Post Full-Text Content From A Single Article

When you read about an article, you want to post the whole article to your blogs and social media sites without doing any copying-and-pasting or uploading pictures. Enter the URL of the article you want to share, hit the Search/Load Webpages button, and then you will see this:

February 12: Ability to Add A Watermark to Pictures

Now you can automatically add a text watermark to every picture (except gif) you post. You can turn it on in Settings for each fan page you have. Just be sure you have the right to reuse and modify the images that you're going to use.
