ANSWER ID:149, 376

If you have Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn accounts, you can link them to your MYOB Atlas website. By linking your social network accounts, you can:

  • display your social network links on your website (in the Follow us section),
  • tell your social network contacts about your website (using the Tell the world feature),
  • post your website news to your social network accounts (using the News feature), and
  • display your social network news on your website (using the News feature).

We'll show you how to link your social network accounts in the Follow us, Tell the world and News sections of your website. 

 

If you've linked your social network accounts in one section of your website, you don't need to link them again in other sections. For example, if you've linked your Twitter account in the Follow us section of your site, it will appear automatically in the Tell the world and News sections.
