Add Social media icons to the final screen of your survey to enable your respondents to like or share your questionnaire, your Facebook page or website. You can add icons for the most popular social media platforms, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
The Social Media share option is an easy way to boost your social media marketing strategy and increase your brand awareness, as you engage your respondents and attract more by enabling them to share your questionnaire.
Social media branding refers to the various actions brand owners take to increase their brand awareness on social media.

AddThis adds buttons to your final screen to share your questionnaire via Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Email. The URL, Intro Text, and Logo will be shared.
The meta tags for our surveys are generated for social media bots only. When viewing the questionnaire in normal browser the meta tags are not generated. Following data is taken:
- title = questionnaire title
- description = questionnaire intro text (can be hidden)
- image = questionnaire logo
- weblink = questionnaire url
Toggle the button to add the AddThis button to your final screen. You can then check the boxes of the buttons you want to add.
Facebook will only be enabled when the main Facebook settings are disabled.
- Twitter - Only the URL and the first 140 characters of the Intro Text will be shared on Twitter.
- LinkedIn - Check this box to allow the respondent to share your questionnaire on LinkedIn.
- Email - Check this box to enable the respondent to share your questionnaire via Email.
If you've checked all the boxes, this is what the buttons will look like on your final screen:
If you are using outcomes you need to toggle the Enable share options button in order for the social media icons to display at your final screen. You can find it at the outcomes tab, below the Redirect URL option.
Your logo will be shared with AddThis. If you want to change your logo, simply click on the Design tab and either click Upload logo if you have not yet uploaded one, or Update logo to change the current logo.
- Embedding your survey allows you to display it in the webpage of your choice. It is the easiest way to let your respondents complete your questionnaire without ever leaving your web page. Embed your survey on a website, e-mail, anchor link, Facebook, LinkedIn or other social media.
- Facebook Pixel is an analytics tool that helps you to see actions people are taking on your website. Use Facebook Pixel with Pointerpro to find out how many people entered the survey via the Facebook ad, including how many started and completed the survey.
- A Campaign shows a group of questionnaires all in one screen. This is a huge advantage and opportunity for you, as all your surveys can be accessed with just a single link. You can share your campaigns via a link, QR code, email, and more!
