    How to add a Pin it button, a Tweet button and a Share button to your artworks.

    A: How to add a Pinterest Pin it button, a Twitter Tweet button, a Facebook Share button, a Facebook Like Button, and a Facebook Send button to your artworks.

    This is a Beta feature, so be aware it may change a bit before being made generally available.

    1. Login to your FASO Account

    2. Click "Social" on the toolbar

    3. Click "Add a Social Sharing Bar to your artwork pages"

    4. Next to "Use Social Sharing Bar On Artworks", select "Yes"

    5. Leave the Button style as "Icon only" for small buttons with a simple icon representing each button.

    Pinterest (Pin it)
    Twitter (Tweet)
    Facebook (Share)
    Facebook (Like)
    Facebook (Send)

    Q: FASO Connect/BoldBrush Social Network
    Can you explain FASO Connect a little?

    A: Our own BoldBrush social network, also known as FASO Connect, is a social network built into your FASO account so you can connect with art lovers, art collectors and other artists. No cat videos (not that there's anything wrong with that), just all art.

    For a detailed article about the launch of FASO Connect, go to:
    http://faso.com/blog/88250/introducing-boldbrush-social-networking-by-faso

    When you 'follow' another FASO client, then when they post new artworks, or make comments or 'likes,' you'll receive alerts in your email inbox as well as in your FASO control panel home screen in the new 'Art Activity Stream.'

    To enable FASO Connect on your account:

    1. login to control panel
    2. click the 'gear' icon in upper right for 'Your Account Settings'
    3. click 'Account Settings'
    4. click 'Labs'
    5. check 'Enable FASO Connect'
    6. save changes

    Here is how to follow another FASO client, from this article:
    http://faso.com/articles/84081/how-to-follow-another-artist-on-faso

    1. Log into your FASO control panel
    2. Click the 'Discover' link - top row in the black bar
    3. Type in the artist's name. You can also click the 'Follow' link on any of the suggested artist names
    4. Clicking on their name or bio pic will take you to their profile page

    Q: BoldBrush Connect - Discover
    What is the 'Discover' link in FASO BoldBrush Connect and how do artists show up there?

    A: When you log in to your FASO Control Panel, you can click 'Discover' in the top left to find other FASO artists to follow, to like, and to comment on their art, using our fairly new BoldBrush Connect social network.

    The artists who appear in the Discover section change over time based on activity in the network. So if you want to get featured there, it's time to rev up your BoldBrush Connect activity!
