Create a Social Message

Creating social messages in CoSchedule will help you build out your social schedule


Create New Social Message

To create a new message, click the orange Create button in the top right-hand corner or click + on the day you want to schedule your social messages then select Social. With CoSchedule, you can either create a solo message by selecting Social Message or create multiple messages with the Social Campaign.

When inside the social message editor, there will be multiple options.

Select Social Profile(s)

Select the social profile(s) from the drop-down menu. The profiles you select will show in the box. You can remove a profile by clicking on the thumbnail picture.

🗓Note: To manage your social profiles, go to the Settings > Social Profiles page.

Add Text or Mention Other Profiles

In the body of the message, enter the text content of your post, including any links. The character count for the message will display in the bottom right-hand corner. Mention a profile or Page by entering @ followed by the  name then selecting the correct profile/Page.

Include a Link

If a link is pasted in the body of the message, a preview of the link will display under the text. If you are not seeing the link preview, hit Enter on your keyboard.

Attach an Image or Video

Attach one or more Images or a Video to your message by selecting the Camera icons. Upload new images or select previously added images or videos from your calendar’s media library.
