Better management of your team’s Facebook posts

If your content strategy includes content curation (which it should!) it can be hard keep track of which pieces of content you’ve already shared. Add in a team of page managers and things really start to get crazy! So what’s a page manager to do?

Here at ActionSprout, we were running into this problem with our own pages. To make matters worse, even if we managed to remember that we’d posted the content, we couldn’t remember when we had done it. If we wanted to reshare a piece of awesome content for the second or third time, we had to jump into Timeline or Facebook to find out if it was too soon or not.

All of the clicking back and forth was driving us crazy, so we decided to do something about it. Now each piece of content in your Inspiration and Timeline feed comes with a “last shared date!”

This not only tells you if you have already shared a piece of content, but it will also warn you if it’s too soon to reshare it! (And you should definitely reshare high-performing content!)

Clicking on the shared date will also take you to the original post:

If the piece of content is rockin and has been shared a few times, this share history will be displayed. Again, each time stamp links back to the corresponding post on Facebook:

We hope this new feature makes it even easier to tap into the power of content curation, and collaborating with your team members! Never again should you wonder if and when a post was shared.

Happy sharing!
