Help: How do I share broadcasts to friends only?
Bambuser users who follow each other can share private broadcasts via the share menu. By connecting Bambuser to Facebook you can share to your friends even if they don't yet have a Bambuser account.
Share with another Bambuser user
To share a private broadcast with another Bambuser user:
- Make sure you are both following each other. The follow button is found in the user profile and on all broadcast pages. By mutually following each other's accounts, you are now recognized as friends.
- On a private broadcast, click share and look for the section titled "Bambuser friends" in the menu.
- Once shared, your friend can access the broadcast via the Feed on his or hers channel page. Provided they have notifications enabled, they will also get an email.
Share with Facebook friends
To share a private broadcast with specific Facebook friends simply follow these steps:
Connect your Bambuser account to Facebook if you haven't done so already.
Set up a private broadcast.
In the share menu on the phone or via your channel page on bambuser.com you will now see an option to share to all your Facebook friend lists. If you choose to share to your Facebook friends, your private broadcast will be visible to them, but not to anyone else. A post appears on your Facebook wall and in the newsfeed. Hovering over the lock icon in the post shows who have access to it. (The lock icon is visible only to you.)
To share to specific friends, you can organize them into friend lists on Facebook, read more about how to set up and organize frend lists on Facebook's help section. All your friend lists appear automatically in the Bambuser share menu.
Friends that want to watch the broadcast will be asked to make a connection between Facebook and Bambuser to verify their identity. This ensures that your broadcasts always remain secret and viewable only by the friends you choose.
Other ways to share
To share a broadcast publicly, simply set your broadcast to public and follow the common sharing guide.
