    Hey

    Not sure it is possible, so I ask this great community :)

    We want to give 50% discount to our customers whom have shared info about it in social media- Friends of friends who also share should get 50%

    I know I can ask customers to send me proof (screenshot) they have shared among their friends on social media, and then I send them an email back containing the discount coupon...

    But can't this be automated? Like if they share it and they automatically get the coupon.... wonder so I don't need to sit at my computer whole day checking and sending emails. Maybe I can outsource it also

    I think your best approach is to have someone code something that changes a variable once the user pressed the share button and then reward him as you wish. You are not allowed to know if a user shared or not something from your website (Facebook policy).

    Otherwise, your best chance if you don't want to waste your time is to hire a VA.

    You can setup a facebook app and use the API which can responde if share is success or not and use ajax to reward the user based on facebook id
