Sharing is a great way to introduce new readers to your content. On Issuu there are three methods for sharing publications - when reading on Issuu, via publisher homepage, and using the Shareable Full-Screen Reader. The first two options include features such as Save, Like, Share and Download.
1) When Reading on Issuu
To share when reading any Issuu publication:
1. Select "SHARE" below the publication.
2. Choose the starting page. Leave it unchecked if you’d like it to start from the front page.
3. Choose between sharing via the social media sites represented, email or simply copy the URL to share.
2) From your Publisher Homepage
A second way to share your own publications:
1. Navigate to the publication in your Publication List and select "SHARE.”
2. Choose between sharing via the social media sites represented, email or simply copy the URL to share.
3) Using Shareable Full-Screen Reader
Publications uploaded to Issuu are read in the Issuu reader, which includes various features such as Save, Like, Share and Download. To let readers read your publications without these features or Related Publications, we offer a Shareable Full-Screen Reader feature with our paid plans.
To see how to get the Shareable Full-Screen Reader link follow this guide.
Troubleshooting Shared Publication Issues on Facebook
There are two reasons why you might be experiencing issues sharing your publication on Facebook:
1) “Document Not Available”
To solve the problem follow these steps:
1. Go to the post on Facebook.
2. From the dropdown menu inside the post, select "Refresh share attachment."
3. Choose "SAVE" in the bottom righthand corner.
4. If this doesn’t resolve the problem, remove the post from Facebook, then use Facebook’s debug tool to clear the cache.
5. Enter the Issuu document URL, select “DEBUG” and then “FETCH NEW SCRAPE INFORMATION” or “SCRAPE AGAIN”.
6. Clear your browser cache and history, then restart your browser.
7. Finally, repost the document on Facebook.
2) “Improper URL”:
Another reason your publication may not be showing up on Facebook is if the URL ends in an underscore (_). If the publication isn’t yours, try reaching out to the publisher to make them aware of the problem by sharing this article. If the publication is yours, please follow these steps:
1. Change the filename of your publication so it doesn’t end with an underscore.
2. Delete the old version from Issuu and upload the publication as a new publication.
3. Once the publication is ready on Issuu, go back and follow one of the two sharing methods at the top of this article.
