Emphasize and distinguish your posts with bold, italic, and strikethrough! πŸ“

 

New

 

 

Have you ever tried to emphasize a word in your post, but didn't know how to? Use bold! Did you try to get your point across but sarcasm reaaaaally didn't translate well into the post? Maybe tried to hide point out something wrong? πŸ€”

All of these options became available in SocialBee, regardless of how and where you post: all profiles, all integrations, everything! 🀩

To do this, just type in your caption, select the word(s) you want to stylize and click the button! Do it! πŸ‘€ Watch the magic happen…

Is this a typical post? We can't wait for the "new" to become the "regular"! 😌

Add a Location to Your Instagram Posts πŸ—Ί

 

New

 

 

Adding a location to your Instagram posts will help you reach the local community, tourists, and people who are in the area with little to no effort. Talk about making things easy! 🀩

For Instagram Business Profiles that share content via SocialBee directly, adding a location to your scheduled posts couldn't be simpler.

All you have to do is create a post, customize it for each profile, and then add your location. You can see all the steps here:
πŸ“ How Do I Add a Location to Instagram?

⚠️ IMPORTANT NOTE ⚠️ At the moment, the only locations you see will belong to Facebook Pages you manage. If you haven't set up the location of your page, you can see how to do that by clicking here.

And, just like Joey, we're ready to let the world know exactly where we are! πŸ“Œ

Trying to #BeeBetter, one small change at a time 🐝

 

Weekly Fixes

 

 

SocialBee is always trying to grow, improve, and - as according to our internal motto - bee better! 🀩 We're more than happy to announce two weeks worth of tweaks, changes, and small updates that you might have been waiting for:

πŸ’« Is it a hashtag collection or bank? We were confused too but, at last, we've settled on collection. Set yours up here.
πŸ”Ž The font size in the Category Menu has changed and it's matching with the rest of our app.
πŸ‘­ We no longer create "twin" categories when you migrate them from one workspace to another. You already have My Awesome Content? Get ready for My Awesome Content (2).
⛳️ SocialBee is all about equality! So, we've said goodbye to selfish RSS Feeds, claiming an entire row for themselves.
πŸ§™β€β™‚οΈ Our Onboarding Wizard is no longer forgetful! If you've ever started this process before, he'll now ask if you'd like to resume or restart.
πŸ› A little bug changed all the variations in your post, without even being asked! We've fixed this and your posts won't change any more.

Just like Phoebe, we think our developers are really cool people!

Small changes in a big package 🎁

 

Improvement

 

 

Sometimes the smallest changes make the biggest difference. πŸ€“ And that applies to everyone who uses SocialBee.

We've spent the past two weeks making a looot of small changes and we'd like to point out a few: πŸ‘‡

πŸ“΅ We no longer ask for your phone number when you first log in. We admit that was kind of pushy…
πŸ“£ If you're not sure if this Instagram post sharing directly or via Reminders, you'll now see a phone icon each time a post will be sent to our app in your post editor and category.
πŸ’¬ Hovering over a category name now tells you its full, complete, and unabridged name.
πŸ‘₯ No more category twins or name duplicates. Time to get creative in naming them!
πŸ—’ We stopped cramming everything into a small page and added more space around buttons. Talk about a "relaxed" design.
πŸ§™ Our onboarding wizard underwent a magical transformation and it's now prettier and better than ever.

Just like Phoebe, we think the app is looking better and better every day! πŸͺž

Chasing away bugs πŸ› with developer bees 🐝

 

Weekly Fixes

 

 

It's a short week for our developers and testers, but a looong week for clients dealing with bugs. πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈ The weekend is close, but our team's fixes were even closer!

Here's a quick run down of the issues we've fixed this week:

πŸ—“ Deleting content from your "Next Posts" menu no longer wipes out the entire page. Whew! That was confusing…
πŸ”Ž Moving posts to the top no longer makes them disappear. The bees are now taking them to the right place.
πŸ“± Enabling direct posting will actually work, unless it's that awkward moment when you don't have the right permissions… in which case, we'll tell you.

How many bugs we want to fix next week? Joey can answer: πŸ‘‡

Move your posts up ⬆️ or down ⬇️ in your categories

 

Improvement

 

 

Getting your content in order is a crucial part of any social media marketer's job, but what if you want to switch it up? 😯

Not anymore! In your SocialBee categories, you can now move posts up and down as much as you need.

How, you're asking? πŸ”Ž There are two nifty buttons at the top right side of every post that will let you wiggle the content around as much as needed.

Small Fixes for a Week, Big Improvements for SocialBee 🐝

 

 

We're always growing, changing, and improving things with our platform. Sometimes, it's big upgrades βš™οΈ, others they're annoying bugs πŸ›, but most times they're tiny fixes that make a big difference πŸ”Ž!

Have you spotted this week's changes? Here's a rundown of everything we've done:

😡 Empty imports have been disabled and our bees will no longer be bamboozled trying to add… nothing?! to your categories.
πŸ—“ Next Posts Menu warms you why you can't see anything. Psst, it's because no posts were scheduled.
πŸ“± No more troubleshooting emails, finally! At least, for Instagram. Our help article and video are linked directly in the connection page!
🚨 Mobile Reminders are set automatically by the person who connects the profile. No more confusion and second-guessing.
πŸ“ˆ Following counts are now tracked for Instagram which makes this the perfect time to check your Analytics.
πŸ”’ Bees have re-learned counting so now you should be able to see how many characters are left in a post.


We're ready to start next week in full swing! Let's go! πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈπŸ’¨

Peekaboo! πŸ•΅οΈ Your Next Posts Menu is Populated Again

 

Fix

 

 

You might have noticed that our scheduling bees have lost their ways and, in your Next Posts Menu, nothing was showing up. 😱

Kiiind of like this screenshot below… πŸ‘‡

Don't worry! Our developer bees started buzzing for honey quickly, found what caused this issue, fixed it, tested it, fixed some more, and now you should be able to see your posts without any issues.

No more confused Joey looks, trying to figure out what will get posted next… 🧐
