How do I make a post and where does it go?

The Yext Post feature allows you to post messages, photos, and links from your Yext account to Facebook, Foursquare, Google Local and your business website by creating and installing our widget.

This social stream is set up to update in real-time as you post from your account. By default, posts are sent to Facebook, Foursquare, Google Local and your website, but you also have the option to choose the specific site you would like to post to.
