ShortStack Announces Tool to Import likes and comments from Facebook Page Timeline Promotions

Share Article

Facebook’s promotion guidelines no longer require businesses to use third-party apps to run Facebook promotions. App platform ShortStack creates new tool for businesses to leverage these changes.

For businesses that have a large number of fans and are looking to further leverage the data they collect, ShortStack's comment/like importer can help them.

Do-it-yourself app creation platform, ShortStack, has released a new tool that allows businesses on Facebook to collect and import the likes and comments from a Page’s status update into a database. This feature comes after Facebook’s most recent announcement that businesses no longer need to use a third-party publishing platform to run promotions.

"Businesses that run promotions on their timelines will most likely see a big increase in immediate engagement on their posts," said Jim Belosic, CEO of ShortStack. "However, for businesses that have a large number of fans and are looking to further leverage the data they collect from their fans, a tool like ShortStack’s Comment/Like Importer can help them do that by collecting the information and organizing it into a database."

ShortStack’s comment/like importer allows businesses to collect and import the likes and comments they receive on their status updates when they run promotions on the Facebook timeline. From there, the information goes into a database where users can pick a random winner, and then organize the data to use for future marketing efforts.

Using the comment/like importer, page administrators can also ask entrants to give additional contact or demographic information by way of a custom app. ShortStack’s tool then combines the entries from the timeline and the app, and businesses can easily access all entries.

Businesses can use the comment/like importer any time after posting a status update, so comments and likes from a previous post can be accessed after a status update has been made. The tool also gathers the photo comments from updates.

Facebook has made several changes lately that greatly benefit the 50 million businesses that are on Facebook. When a business combines a timeline or custom app promotion with Facebook’s new embed feature and ShortStack’s Comment/Like Importer they have a powerful marketing tool.

ShortStack’s new tool is available for businesses using one of ShortStack’s paid plans. ShortStack offers monthly pricing plans starting at $30. Users on all paid plans are able to access ShortStack’s database and comment/like importer feature.
