Below, we have listed some possible use cases of this plugin:

  • Automatic likes on content: Auto actions can be created for getting no. of likes on a group, event, blog, album, classified, etc. Increased number of likes on any particular content attracts users towards it and thus people’s attention can be gained towards any specific content of your site.

    • => Without friend requests sent: In this no friend requests/notifications would be sent and the member for which auto action is created will become friends of the target users.
    • => With friend requests sent: Here friend requests will be sent automatically from the target users to the particular member for which auto action is created and friendships are confirmed only when that member would accept those friend requests.
    This can beneficial when Admin wants to be friend of all the members of his site, so that he can better approach them for content sharing etc. Or want some moderator or other admin serve the same purpose for him.
  • Automatic membership of a group / event or Automatic addition of members to a group / event: Auto actions can be created such that new members or existing members of your site can be added to a group/event. This membership can also be made possible in two ways:
    • => Without any membership requests: No requests for membership would be sent and members would become members of the group/event for which auto action is created.
    • => With membership requests: Here, membership requests will be sent automatically from the target users to the owner of the group/event for which auto action is created and members will be added only when the content owner will accept the membership requests.
    A good number of members already existing in a group or an event is a key to capture attention of others, so, with this use case, admin can take his site members towards some specific areas of his site which otherwise have a great chance of getting missed from people’s eye. For example, there is a health and fitness related group or an event on your site, so, you can add members to that group or event who are interested in health and fitness, users’ interests can be known from related profile questions and these profile questions can be mapped with respective auto action.
  • Automatic following of events and people: Auto actions can be created such that events are automatically followed by existing or new users of your site. Automatic following of an event is a great way for promoting any event on your site. Event promotion also promotes your website.
    If you have enabled one way friendship on your site then auto actions can be made such that a person is automatically followed by other members of your site. These members can be new or existing members.
  • Automatic Subscription of blogs: Auto actions can be made to auto subscribe a blog, so that a blog is automatically subscribed by new or existing members of your site. So, you can make popular among site users some great knowledgeable blog post on your site.
  • Popularity of your site content on other social websites:When your site content or links are shared on some other social websites like Facebook, Twitter etc, then a great no. of likes and followers on the content would easily attract other people towards it.
  • Site Promotion: If your site is in its initial phase of growth, then this plugin can be of much importance to you.

  • Setting up a path for new users: Whenever a new users joins a site, he is unaware about the site and its content, he has to explore the whole website before he/she can find things of his/her interest. This plugin can ease this task by presenting some sorted out content to them with the use of auto actions. Auto actions can be mapped with profile questions and profile types of your site. Suppose, there is a profile type “Musician” on your site, then if any person signs up on your site as musician, you can serve him music related content in the form of events, groups etc by the use of auto actions and thus, can set a path for him to go on your site.
    This would be very pleasing for the new users if they are initially served with the things they like and love, this would be similar as if someone serve you your favourite dish out of a number of dishes.
