See screen shot below for following steps

Check the box next to “Facebook: Maximum Rocknroll”

Under “Custom Message:” select and replace all of the text that already there:

Type in what you want the Facebook and Twitter post to say. Using the character the counter right above it, please try to make your message less than 115 characters, and make sure it says “on this week’s MRR Radio” or something like that in the text:

Radio_inst_jetpack_FB_3

——————————————————————————————————

Click Preview near the upper-right and your show will appear in a new window (or tab, depending on the browser). Click on the play button (arrow) to make sure your show plays. Have a look at your playlist and check for errors. If you find any, you can close the window (or tab), fix the text, and click Preview again.
