This article will address some of common difficulties verifying your Social Shares using TapInfluence. As noted in the article, Completing And Verifying Your Assignment there are traditionally (5) steps to take that will allow you to verify your Social Shares.
1. Create the Share on your Social Network.
When you are first creating your Social Share, please ensure that your Share has no limiting constraints. The share will need to be completely Public in order to validate. Limitations and constraints can prevent it from being verified during step 5.
2. Copy the URL for the Post.
It is important that you only copy the URL for the assignment, as this has a unique URL. If you attempt to verify your Timeline or home screen, it will not verify.
To do this, click on the Date associated with the post. You can either:
A. Right click and select Copy Link Address
B. Open the page and copy the URL from the address bar.
3. Select the Appropriate Network
Presently TapInfluence supports (6) Social Networks that you can verify your assignment for (with more in the works!).
4. Paste the URL into the Field.
After you have selected the relevant Icon, the text will change to "Enter the URL of your Social promotion". Paste the previously copied URL into this space.
If you have provided a valid URL, it will show a Verify Icon. Click this button to verify your post.
5. Click On Verify
If the Social Post has verified successfully, it will display the relevant Social Share and the option to add an additional share.
If you receive an error after clicking on Verify, then your post has not been successfully verified. There are a couple of issues that might be preventing it from verifying successfully.
