An online social network is a loose union of people in a network community. If these are networks in which the users commonly create their own content, the networks are also referred to as social media. The world's largest social network with an estimated 800 million members is Facebook.

Typical functions include:

  • Post = share content: This function is used to share content such as text, websites, videos and photos.
  • Like = I like this: This function allows the user to let his/her network know that they like the content. It is also frequently used in response to other people's posts.
  • Subscribe = follow: This function allows the user to subscribe to posts and other activities of another person and read them regularly

Tip: If you would like to inform about a vacancy notice explicitly, use the variable for the job number [Job.ID] in the URL

Connects the umantis solutions to the social communities

Whenever umantis solutions are connected to social communities, make sure that all links must be written in "https" format.

Facebook

Facebook Social Plug-in can be integrated in three different ways: HTML5, XFBML and iFrame. The best method is the HTML5 integration. Here, HTML and JavaScript are used.

The facebook module can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

If, for example, you would like to add a Like button to a template, you should integrate the created code in directly in the HTML of the template.

NOTE: At this time, brackets in JavaScript are not interpreted in our template engine. For this reason, instead of the JavaScript proposed by facebook, use the following script:

<script src="http://connect.facebook.net/de_DE/all.js#xfbml=1" type="text/javascript"></script>

Twitter

A tool used to create the necessary JavaScript code can be found here: https://twitter.com/about/resources/buttons#undefined

IMPORTANT: here as well, the JavaScript should be preplaced with the following so it will work: <script src="http://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

Google+

A tool used to create the necessary JavaScript code can be found here: http://www.google.com/intl/de/webmasters/+1/button/index.html

Important: In order for umantis to function properly, the "parsing" option in the expanded options should be set to "explicit".
