They’re going away on April 9th, right?

Sort of. Now, when you create posts, the sponsored stories will be baked right in. You’re just not allowed to create sponsored stories separately. Read More

iFrame Issue – Web Browsers Now Blocking Mixed Content

October 8, 2013 | By | One Comment">One Comment

As all good Facebook marketers know, there is an iFrame issue that has reared its ugly head. Recently, in their infinite wisdom, all of the major browsers have started blocking “mixed security content” by default (which probably should have been the case all along). If you are wondering what exactly that means, let’s use a typical example from Facebook that illustrates what we at Heyo are calling “the iFrame issue.”

You log in to Facebook on a secure HTTPS connection, because Facebook has an SSL (secure socket layer) Certificate installed. This encrypts the connection between their web server and your web browser, allowing private information to be sent back and forth safely.

New Facebook Contest Changes Save Time and Money

August 27, 2013 | By | 46 Comments">46 Comments

What happened?

Running a Facebook contest is as simple as asking for a Like, comment, or message in a status update. It is no longer required that contests be administered through third party apps. 

What that means for you?

You can now run basic Facebook contests directly in the Timeline of your fan page. This will allow more businesses to participate in and benefit from running social contests.

Heyo is excited! The changes Facebook announced regarding their promotional guidelines, allowing fan page contests within the Timeline, align well with Heyo’s mission to make the lives of small and medium sized business owners easier.
