Setting the Content Author for Facebook

Facebook lets you link your content to your Facebook profile. This means that content authors can each link to their own Facebook profile. Facebook can then display information about the author along with a Follow button when your content is shared on Facebook.

All in One SEO makes it easy to set the Facebook profile for each user, as well as set a default Facebook profile.

Setting the Default Facebook Author URL

To set the default Facebook Author URL, click on Social Networks in the All in One SEO menu and then click on the Facebook tab.
