- Find the eCard you want to post and click it's 'Share eCard' button.
- Click the button for share on Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+. Compose your message and post.
- When you are finished, click the 'back to Sent Cards' button to continue using CorpNote.

When you post an eCard in social media channels, you do not have as much detail as to who is picking up your eCard. You will still see how many times it was viewed but each view will be marked as ’anonymous’. In your ’sent cards’ bin, you can add comments to each eCard which will help you remember where you posted your eCard.
