We want to make 2014 your best year of blogging yet, so we’re putting a bow on some of our most requested features and releasing them before year’s end.

It’s a little something that we’ve been calling “New Feature December.” It’s a lot like no-shave November, but way less itchy.

Here is a roundup of the features we have launched so far.

Awesome Link Previews

Now, for each social media message that you create, CoSchedule will provide you with a preview of the link information that will be sent to sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Google+. Not only are you able to preview the links (and delete them), but you are also able to customize them–including the image, title, and link description.

LinkedIn Company Pages

Connect your LinkedIn company pages to CoSchedule! This makes for a completed roundup with LinkedIn. We fully support personal profiles, company pages and groups. Cool.

Referral Program

Share CoSchedule with your friends and get credit for doing it with our new referral program.

With each friend that makes a purchase, you will receive 10% off of your CoSchedule subscription for the life of their account. Easy, right?

You can find your referral link inside of the settings page of your calendar. From there, you can copy the link to share manually, distribute it to your friends via social channels, or grab a sidebar ad that you can use on your blog.

Improved User Roles

We have made some changes to how user roles work inside of CoSchedule so that our system is more flexible for you. This includes two primary changes:

1. Contributors 
Contributors now only have access to posts that they are following, rather than all posts on the calendar.

2. Authors
We’ve added a new role to CoSchedule called authors. These users are similar to contributors, except that they also have the ability to publish posts.

These new user roles now mean that CoSchedule offers the same type of roles that you are already used to in WordPress. Here is a breakdown:

More To Come

Holiday festivities aside, we still have several more features on deck for December, including two that have been requested more than any other feature. What could they be?

The moral of the story is easy: now is a great time to get started with CoSchedule, and make 2014 your best-ever year of blogging. Also, keep the feature suggestions coming. We are paying attention!
