Sharing your badges to LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter is an easy way to gain instant recognition from your professional network, friends and family for the achievements you've worked hard to earn. Badge sharing also provides fast, free verification of your credentials and skills.
We've made it easy to share your badges to these popular social networking sites right from the Acclaim platform. Each social networking site has its own nuances, so here's what to expect when you broadcast your achievement from Acclaim.
You have two sharing options for LinkedIn - Newsfeed and Profile. If you share to your Newsfeed, the badge image will appear and your contacts can comment on the post. The Newsfeed is a fun way to get feedback from your connections on your badge.
As you can see, the badge image doesn't display in the Certifications section of the profile. LinkedIn has decided they would rather show the company logo of your badge issuer.
You might be wondering why it's valuable to add your certification through Acclaim if you've already manually typed it into your LinkedIn profile. By sharing your badge to LinkedIn from Acclaim, anyone can click on that company logo or the certification name to learn more about your skills and verify your certification's authenticity. That ability to verify and learn more are key benefits of your badges in Acclaim.
Twitter is a great place to share your badge because the feedback from your followers will be instant and easily re-Tweeted, favorited and comment on.
To see the badge in its full glory on Twitter, click View Details. And of course, when one of your followers clicks on the badge image or the URL they'll go right back to Acclaim to learn more about what your badge represents.
Last but not least, let's take a look at what your Facebook post will look like.
