Unlock your full analytics πŸ”






SocialBee's Analytics module has been steadily growing for almost half a year now. πŸ“ˆ We added all social media platforms and ensured all your profiles get the maximum benefits. πŸ’›

The final (🀞) and biggest change so far is our gating module. What does this mean? πŸ‘€

1️⃣ Bootstrap users can access their analytics up to 3 months in the past. They do not have access to Analytics Export.
2️⃣ Accelerate users can access their analytics up to 2 years in the past. They do not have access to Analytics Export.
3️⃣ PRO and higher users can access their analytics up to 2 years in the past. They do have access to Analytics Export.

Big changes start with a small step πŸš€




Perfection is unattainable – but we still try to get a bit better every day. Our CEO reminds us all: if you get 1% better every day, for a year, you will be up to 37 times better by the end! πŸ—“

And this summer surely passed quickly… πŸ–β˜€οΈ So, here are all the small upgrades we worked on:
πŸ“‹ Facebook and Instagram Personal Profiles are included in Weekly Analytics emails;
πŸ“– TikTok captions can now be up to 300 characters long (aka twice as much);
✍️ Most of our licensing messages are clearer now – money's confusing business!
♻️ LinkedIn Profiles and Pages refresh tokes change yearly so you won't reconnect them as often;
πŸ“Š Our Analytics menu has dedicated links for profiles and tabs;
🏎 Many, many performance improvements that make SocialBee faster;
🧲 Our link magnet is friendlier to multiple alphabets;
πŸŒ€ Sync issues between SocialBee and TikTok have been solved;
πŸ“Έ Images larger than 4096 pixels (or 3MB) now resize correctly;
πŸ’» Some UI tweaks to make everything easier to understand.

Perhaps this is a successful month… perhaps…
