"Pocket" your best ideas easily! ๐Ÿ“ฉ

Every once in a while, we see an article that we'd love to add to our posting queue, but it would just take so long to set it all up in SocialBee. ๐Ÿ’ป

We offered a solution via Pocket (a browser extension and mobile app) long ago, but we've made a lot of improvements for you to take advantage of right now! ๐Ÿคฉ

๐Ÿ Add your posts to the top or bottom of the queue ๐Ÿ‘‰ You can now choose if you want to import your feeds to the top of your queue or to the bottom.

๐Ÿ Deleting a Pocket now also offers the possibility to delete previously imported posts from your category.

๐Ÿ Adding or removing social accounts from your Pocket setup will also have the option to apply those posts to social accounts.

๐Ÿ You can now choose how many articles to import (1, 10, or more), which means you will be able to import more than the standard 10 posts from a tag you add to SocialBee.


See the in-depth article on this here: ๐Ÿ“ How do I use Pocket to Import Content?

So, we are asking, are you ready to carry the best article in your pocket? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Magic honey tweaks and improves SocialBee ๐Ÿฏ

If you logged into SocialBee today and thought to yourself: "Hey, something looks a bit differentโ€ฆ" ๐Ÿง Well, let's just say you would be 100% correct!

We've upgraded a few things! ๐Ÿ˜Ž Keep an eye out for:

๐Ÿ“ Icons all over SocialBee are new and improved to make our design smoother than before.

๐ŸŽซ Notifications have moved to the top right corner. (Beware! They're shy and will disappear within 3 seconds)

๐Ÿ‘“ Zapier templates no longer perform a vanishing act when you set them up. They're here to stay.

Needless to say, we've been staring at them all dayโ€ฆ Even tried it with 3D glassesโ€ฆ ๐Ÿค“ Spoiler alert: Nothing changed.


Did you give your Facebook Groups permissions? ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

After quite a few incidents with insufficient permissions for Facebook Groups, we've decided to offer a helping hand! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป

Our detective bees will now search if the SocialBee app has already been added to the Facebook group and, if you see a red warning sign โš ๏ธ you know you'll have to do that!

Check out the steps here: ๐Ÿ“ Posting On Facebook Groups


Time to create some content, this time 100% positive that it will actually be published, instead of returning some error you don't really understand. ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ป


Workspaces and default categories are a package deal! ๐ŸŽ

For some time now, we've been struggling to understand the definition of default. We've searched high and low ๐Ÿ”Ž, flipped through dictionaries ๐Ÿ“š, we even Googled it ๐Ÿ’ป!

It seems we were, in fact, wrong. ๐Ÿ˜” Default means "a preselected option by a computer program or other mechanism when no alternative is specified by the user or programmer" and we didn't quite do thatโ€ฆ

To fix this, our developer bumblebees came through! ๐Ÿ Starting today, whenever you create a new workspace, youโ€™ll automatically get our suggested categories to help start things up.

Here's our question to you: Which one do you think you use the most? ๐Ÿค” We'd go for Quotes, Questions, and Fun! ๐Ÿคฉ

You can learn about all of them here: ๐Ÿ“ What are the Preset Categories?

What kind of business do you have? ๐Ÿค”

We find labels to be a great tool to understand our clients and build our platform around your needs. But how can we make this quick and easy for everyone? With labels, of course! ๐Ÿ”–

This is why we are introducing a new, 3-question popup for each of your workspaces. Select the size of your business, the type, the industry, click on "Done", and you're all set! ๐Ÿคฉ

We love categories, but you can bet that we'll keep track of this to learn about our clients and research what we can add to SocialBee to make things easier with almost no effort from you. ๐Ÿ”Ž


RSS should stand for Redesign, Simplify, Speed

In order to improve, we must changeโ€ฆ Or was it the other way around? ๐Ÿค” All we know is that our developers have been working day and night to get this better, more powerful version of our RSS feature out.

Here's what changed:

๐Ÿ”Ž We have a new popup and boy! it's pretty;

๐Ÿ”ฎ We're using a crystal ball RSS Previews to see how your posts will look published;

๐Ÿƒโ€โ™‚๏ธ We've increased the speed and got rid of some bugs to improve our performance.

The ability to import posts from RSS feeds is one of our most used features. So now, we've made it even more powerful.

Here are some of the sweet things we've added:

๐Ÿ RSS top/bottom queue ๐Ÿ‘‰ You can now choose if you want to import your feeds to the top of your queue or to the bottom.

๐Ÿ Deleting an RSS/Pocket now also offers the possibility to delete previously imported posts from your category

๐Ÿ When adding/taking out social accounts from an RSS/Pocket, you now have the option to apply those posts to social accounts

๐Ÿ There's a New import number functionality (1, 10, 100 or how many items the RSS has if lower than 100), which means you will be able to import more than 10 posts from a new feed you add to SocialBee

You can learn more about how yo use these features in our help documentation: https://help.socialbee.io/article/86-how-do-i-add-rss-feeds

Level up your RSS content, based on your plan

You may have noticed there are a few changes happening in the RSS Feature in your SocialBee account.

RSS configuration now has different content options, based on the platform plan you're currently on.

What does this mean? Based on your license, you may have a few more options available to customize your posts imported through RSS.

If you're on an Accelerate or PRO Plan, you will be able to select between different options of text for your post.

So now you don't have to guess what the text is going to be, unlike Joeyโ€ฆ


Drag it, drop it, pop it, lock it! ๐Ÿ“†

You've asked and we've taken our honey-sweet time to deliver. ๐Ÿคญ

What's going on? ๐Ÿค” We've recently changed the way you can schedule your categories and maybe those of you who have an inner detective noticed thisโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ•ต๏ธโ€โ™‚๏ธ


What's that, you might ask? ๐Ÿ‘€ Categories can now be dragged and dropped as you need in your Calendar View for extra tweaking and customizing! ๐Ÿคฉ

So, to quote Phoebe, finally the change is here! We love it so much, we've been dragging and dropping the categories around all day.
