Sharing Concept on Facebook

Facebook provides a great outlet for you to share nearly every aspect of your life with the world if you choose. You can post all sorts of different things, like photos, videos, and more. You can like, comment someone else content and so on. 

When you do something then who all can see it and where? That is what we are trying to understand here.

To begin with we need to understand the following:

  1. Types of Content Shared
  2. Sharing Group
  3. Shared Content Display Areas.

1. Types of Content Shared

Broadly, there are two types:

  1. Post
  2. Actions

1. Post – It is that you specifically share content – This can include Photo / Video, Location, Tag somebody and say what you are doing.

2. Actions – Like / Unlike / Comment on someone else Post. Actions on different Applications. Ex Saavn App – Listened to Song,  Goodreads – Reading a book

2. Sharing Group

Let us understand to whom all I can share.

3.  Ticker – Facebook launched a ticker that showed all of your friends and pages updates (Post and Actions). For example, it shows when your friends comment or like a status, and their status updates as soon as they posted them. If users do not have the chat sidebar open, the ticker appears on Facebook home next to the News Feed. If users do have the chat sidebar open, the ticker appears above the list of friends, and can be re-sized (unless the chat sidebar is open). The ticker cannot be closed.

Let us how a Post and Action Flows. Few Examples

  1. If I like on a post then it will appear to Friends and Followers (Public) on their Ticker AND in my Activity Log
  2. If I am doing something (Ex Reading a Book on an App) then  it will appear to Friends and Followers (Public) on their Ticker AND in my Activity Log and Recent Activity
  3. If I post something then I can choose to whom it should appear (Me, Group, My All Friends, Public – Friends and Followers). It will appear in their Newsfeed and My Timeline

For posting from Mobile App

There are mainly two types of Stories:
1. Action Stories
2. Feed Stories

Action Stories – Under the section titled “Best approaches to implement stories” on Facebook developer site, it is recommended that those things are so much frequent and occurring so many times in day then we should use “Action stories” (eating, watching,like, play , comment, travelling, etc.). Which will present in my Recent Activity as well as in other’s Ticker.

Feed Stories – Those things are not so frequent and there is chance of happening any event 1-2 times in day max, can use Feed Stories. It will posted on my Timeline and appear on News feed And it stays longer on Timeline.
