What does the FBShareToUnlock (FSTU) plugin do?

This plugin will allow you to hide your premium content behind a Facebook Share Lock. The content is unlocked only if the visitors click on the ‘Share to Unlock’ button and share your page/post on Facebook. It takes just a few minutes to setup, is highly customizable, and you can use it in a ton of different ways to make your content go viral on Facebook.

The idea is simple. Incentivize your visitors with an instant reward for sharing your content on Facebook.

Hide the juiciest part of your content – which could be a really awesome video, download link to your latest free report, or even a coupon code – all hidden behind a Facebook Share Lock.

The idea is to get them excited about your hidden content, and make them want to voluntarily share your content on Facebook because that’s the only way they can get to the hidden part. And because your visitors can still view the REST of the page EXCEPT the locked content, you can actually tease them with say, Part 1 of your cool video – and then put Part 2 behind the Facebook Share Lock.
