Social media integration

AlbanyWeb includes social media buttons on any blog posts you create.  However, there are many ways to interact with social media sites like Facebook or Twitter, starting from some additional 'Like' and 'Share' functions in other parts of your website, all the way to displaying your Facebook posts or Twitter updates on your website.  AlbanyWeb can do a variety of options to suit your requirements. 

We can add extra social media links to your existing AlbanyWeb website too, just ask.

Facebook integration on AlbanyWeb websites

Yoga with Bijam is a calm and informative website about Satyananda yoga practice, with details of classes offered by Bijam.  Each colour and element was carefully selected for its significance to Satyananda practice, including the specially designed logo of the seed with the bija (mantras) sprouting from it.  From the beginning AlbanyWeb designed this website to be an affordable customisation - in addition to all the features we offer as standard, we added a very simple members-only area.  This contains links...

Cancer Nanomedicine is another COST Action website.  For this website, the researchers were anxious to get online very quickly, and so we broke this project into three phases:

  • A simple, four-page brochure website, which contained the regulatory information required of COST Actions.

AlbanyWeb offered a package to update their website, incorporating an improved version of our Threads of Yoga class search database. ...

Adam became involved with the Murrayfield Community Council through his volunteering work, and persuaded them that they could reach out to the local community better with a modern website.  The main aim of this website was to make it very easy for members of the Council to add updates and broadcast those updates to their Facebook and Twitter pages.

An information-rich website can be hard work to navigate, and we used colours to guide visitors to different parts of the...

My Zumba instructor does it. Our judo club does it too.  Both use Facebook pages instead of a website to promote their businesses.  They have more in common too - both are running a business on their own and depend on keeping their class numbers up to keep afloat.

Let's look at how well this works.

Facebook makes sharing news easy

Photos of classes, competition results, and confirmation of this week's class times are easy to do on Facebook, especially if you already spend a lot of time using Facebook.  Facebook's mobile interface is easy for quick updates so you can add stuff from wherever you are.  Once you have made an update, everyone who has a link to your page is automatically informed.  All good stuff.

By contrast, some people find updating a website is a lot more effort, requiring you to be at a desktop computer. Or the...
