I don't think it goes anywhere although it might show up in your activity feed for your followers to see..

I think you use it to post on your site so your customers will know when you are doing something like being in a show. I forget to post stuff until it is over but I belive that is the intent.

Hi Lynn, as an experiment I just shared one of mine to Pinterest. It has a link in it that takes them where I want them to go when they click through. I tested it in a private window to see if you had to be logged in to visit the link and anyone can see it without having to be logged in to FAA.

So it works to share links to social media so that people can see your press release. Just remember to include a link for them to follow or they might leave your page and browse the whole FAA site. ;)

There is a tab on your FAA page: Press and also on your premium site in the footer: news
If you want you can write about that in your bio with a link

The problem wiht the news release and the blog section of FAA is they only allow one photo, and we are selling art, so pictures are essential, and no one will see it if you do not promote it somewhere else. When you promote it to other places, you can then add more photos.

I deliberately seeded a couple of press releases with unique words a few years back and then searched for them in Google and other search engines. They never came up.

As mentioned above, they do show up in your activity, and people can find them if they are crawling all over your site, but to get any actual readership to them, you have to promote them, just like your artwork.

To overcome the limitations of FAA's blogs and press releases, I started a blog outside of FAA years ago. I chose one of the larger blogging systems on the net and was sailing along just fine. I could put as many photos as I liked, and you could build a following. I would then post an abbreviated version to my FAA blog and press release (when appropriate) with links to my entire blog site.

I got to where I enjoyed doing that. Then the system I chose went out of business, and all that work disappeared. That ended my blogging career.

I want to thank everyone for ALL the help! I deeply appreciate the time you took! I did not see it explained anywhere else. Thanks AGAIN.

Who are you sending the press release to? I send mine to newspapers if the content of my press release in global. Lately I have been thinking about the legal media. So you see it depends on your audience. Mrs. Don Martin
