NationBuilder match

Your nation is deeply integrated with social media. From within your nation you can post directly to Twitter and Facebook, prompt your supporters to share your website content, and track people who have liked your content.

When a supporter is added to your nation and provides an email address, NationBuilder Match will append social media information to that person’s profile.

NationBuilder Match will run any time a new supporter is added to a nation.

The supporter must have an email on their profile for Match to work. Match takes the email address from the profile and finds any public LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter profiles associated with that email address.

If your supporter’s social profiles are set to private, Match will not pull them into your nation.

Profile pictures

When a profile is matched to social accounts profile pictures are pulled into your nation. If a profile picture exists it will used for your supporter’s profile in your nation. If a supporter has multiple accounts with profile pictures your nation will pull them in this order:

  1. Facebook
  2. Twitter
  3. LinkedIn

After Match pulls in a person’s public social media accounts, links to those accounts will be available in her profile.
