Your social actions can be configured to handle three different types of opt-in scenarios, based on your internal policies and regional rules.
What the Different Options Mean
Implicit Opt In
By completing this action, the user has to agree to opt in for future communications from you. All users who complete the action will be marked opt in.
Explicit Opt In
Users are shown a privacy statement that contains an unchecked box. By taking the action (in the default state) they are marked as opting out. A user must explicitly check the box to be marked as opting in.
Explicit Opt Out
Users are shown a privacy statement that contains a pre-checked box. By taking the action in the default state they are marked as opting in. A user must explicitly uncheck the box to be marked as opting out.
Accessing the Opt In/Out Menu
Open the Social Actions section of your account and click the Edit button on the action that you'd like to edit the opt in/out option for.
Scroll to about the middle of the page until you see the Privacy section.
You'll draft that part right here:
