- [Voiceover] One of the best ways to promote your Publish Online document using social media is to use Twitter. And fortunately, Adobe has made it very easy for you to do that. First, publish your document. Once your document is uploaded, we have all these icons for sharing, including one for Twitter. Let's see how it works. I'll click that icon. And immediately I get a browser window that has the title of my document highlighted, along with the URL.
The description and the thumbnail doesn't appear here. But we can certainly edit this so let's try check our latest tour. Something like that. Southern Travelist. Now anytime you post a project on Twitter, I recommend that you use the Twitter hashtag for Publish Online. That's hashtag, ID, PubOn. It's not case-sensitive but I like to capitalize it just because it looks better to me. So once we have modified our text, the URL is already there and we've added the hashtag ID PubOn, we're ready to tweet.
Your tweet has been posted! Let's view it on Twitter. There it is. Just what we expected. I'll go to the homepage for my account here. And here it is, along with a post from yours truly. Now, as I mentioned, it's a good idea to use this hashtag because hashtags let other people search for this hashtag and find your work. You can come up here to the search area of Twitter. I've already searched for it a couple of times. Again, it's not case-sensitive.
Or if you post something you can just click on the hashtag here. This takes you to a page with all of the posts that have the hashtag ID PubOn. The top tweets are shown here or you can go to live. Sometimes that brings up a few more. Here's one that I posted not long ago. The tweet that I just did with my online brochure hasn't posted yet. Sometimes on some days, Twitter's a little slow and it takes it a moment for it to show up in the searched hashtag field. But it will come up in a moment or two.
What's great about this is you can see all the projects that have been posted, all the information that's been published about Publish Online by people all over the world, online brochures, online portfolios, and here's even a link to an article, a really in-depth article that I wrote about Publish Online for InDesign magazine. So it's a great place to aggregate all of the examples of Publish Online projects and yours can be part of this too when other people search for it.
Twitter's a great way to promote your Publish Online projects. Just remember to include the ID PubOn hashtag so even people who don't follow you can find it.
