Facebook is a great tool for individuals, businesses, organizations, and brands to share their stories and connect with people, including potential clients.
Facebook Pages, like timelines, can be customized by adding apps, posting stories, hosting events, and more. Engage and grow your audience by posting regularly. People who like your Page and their friends will see updates in their News Feeds.
You can create a Facebook page through your personal account.
Funeral homes can easily post online obituaries to their Facebook page through the Book of Memories with minimal set-up required. This will allow anyone who has liked your Facebook page to view the Book of Memories summary, read the obituary, and link to the funeral home website. This is particularly helpful in communities where local newspapers don’t publish every day.
Main > Book Of Memories > Facebook Page Management.
Follow the instructions and select the Click Here to Begin button. This will open your Facebook page. Click the Go To App button.
Only the funeral home or business page where obituaries will post are displayed in the ‘Manage Your Pages’ section. Click the ‘X’ to the right of any additional pages to remove them.
Leave the Post on your behalf section as is.
Click Allow. A new page will ask for verification of which page(s) will post obituaries. Select your funeral home page and click Save. Click OK to return to the FrontRunner system.
Post Obituaries on Facebook
Open a record and click on Edit Record Settings > Post to Facebook > Click on the dropdown and select ‘Yes’ > Save.
Facebook searches for new records every 15 minutes; your record will auto post at that time.
To update an obituary already posted to Facebook, delete the record from your Facebook page and then go to Main > Book Of Memories > Facebook Record Management. Click the Re-Post button to the right of the record.
If you have a Twitter account and would like your obits to push to it as well, download the Twitter app from your Facebook account. Anything that is posted to Facebook will then post to Twitter.
