Media upload speed is improved.

Many of our users have reported slow uploading speeds on posts that had images. This was happening especially in areas outside of Europe.

We're happy to let you know that our tech team investigated the issue and made improvements to uploading speed so that everyone can create posts at an optimal speed.

You should now be able to add posts at a much better speed, but if you're still experiencing issues, please reach out to our support team.

The SocialBee App has got a new look! ✨

These times have changed us all. So it shouldn't be a surprise that changes have come to SocialBee as well. The SocialBee app got revamped with a new UI!

Here at SocialBee, we're striving to make our tool easy to use, intuitive and fun. That wasn't always the case with our older interface, so we decided to up our game and release a new User Interface that is super fresh and easy to use.

You'll see that it is now a lot easier to find and manage your profiles, workspaces became more visible and everything got a much-needed refresh.

As this is quite a big change, please contact our support team if you notice anything that isn't working as it should. You can do that via email at hello@socialbee.io or via the chat in our app.

Let's hope you're just as excited about this new design as we are 🐝

πŸ’¬ Get notified on Post Comments (v2 is here).

Earlier this year we launched Post Comments, giving you the ability to communicate with your team (or your designated bee 🐝) directly on the post that needed your attention.

We went further and now we're launching version 2. What's new, you ask? Well, you can now:

πŸ‘‰ Get notified when someone posts a comment on one of the posts that interest you. πŸ‘‰ Mention people in your comments, so that your message goes to the right person.

Just make sure you tag the right person, so you don't end up like Ross…

You can now edit color labels on your categories.

Labeling is a good planner's dream. So it goes without saying that you should have the option to color label your content categories when planning your social media content.

Our Content categories always had a color label attached to them, however, you were not able to customize it to your liking…up until now.

That's right, you are now able to change the color of your categories so that they work best with your planning vision.

To change the color label of your category, go to your Categories and click on "Edit Category". You'll then have the option to choose the color of your liking for each category.

Now you really don't have a reason to be like Phoebe…
