Connect and Post to Social Media

Category: Social Media

Overview

There are two ways to schedule a social media post: Social A.I. and Social Media Scheduler. This article will tell you how to use both. Before reading, make sure you have familiarized yourself with our content curation tools.

Social A.I. will choose the right content and automatically post it to your social media accounts on a regular basis. You will indicate which Streams of content to post from, how frequently to post, and on which channels. Social A.I. will then choose the right content at the best time of day to post based on your settings. Jump to instructions.

With the Social Media Scheduler, you can choose the specific articles and times to post. Schedule multiple posts in advance and opt to schedule on a daily or weekly basis. Jump to instructions.
