What’s New in Social

LinkedIn adds a new link sticker option

You can now add a link sticker on top of your images on LinkedIn! This will help drive more traffic to your website, event, blog, etc.

Instagram tests a new feature that is very similar to BeReal

Not only does Instagram have a dual camera mode that is incredibly similar to BeReal, but it’s also now testing a QR code that you can add to your post which will allow users to scan and see where you are on a map – similar to BeReals map functionality.

Tweet editing may only be available to Twitter Blue subscribers

After years of Twitter users requesting an edit button, it’s now coming to reality! The edit button test is currently only available to Twitter Blue subscribers.

Would a free social media planning and approval tool be useful?

If you work in social, you know the struggle is real when trying to communicate your creative ideas. We often hear social media managers using screenshots of social posts to send their ideas over.

That’s why we are looking to provide a free tool so you can mock up and get approval on your social posts.  Say goodbye to screenshots 👋🏼 and start taking back your day

Sign up here and we’ll let you know when we launch!
