How To Import A Single Post From Social

Changes to Facebook Groups Publishing

Facebook unexpectedly decided to remove Groups API access, preventing any third-party tools, including SmarterQueue, from interacting with your Facebook Groups. After April 22nd, 2024, SmarterQueue will no longer be able to publish directly to groups you manage. You can still schedule posts for these groups, but will receive email notifications for easy manual posting instead. You may also wish to consider transitioning to a Facebook Page for better engagement.

Use SmarterQueue to curate content from your favorite social profiles with Find Content 🕵️‍♀️

How To Find The Post You Want To Import

1. To get started, navigate to "Find Content".

2. Select "Curate from social media" or "Re-share your top past posts" from the available options.

3. In the search box, type the name of the Social Profile you want to import posts from or select your Social Profile from the drop-down menu

You can search for your own profiles, Pinterest boards you follow, or others' Facebook Pages.

4. Click on the Social Profile you want to import posts from.

💡 Note: Importing in Bulk from the selected Social Profile will work exactly the same way, whether you're importing your own posts from one of your connected profiles, or you're looking at someone else's social media. 

SmarterQueue will then fetch the most recent social posts from that profile. 

5. Use the filters at the top of the search to further narrow your content and surface top-performing posts! You can filter & sort by:

  • Content type: Posts with an image, posts with a link, posts with a video, or all types
  • Sort: by Latest, Most Liked, Most Shared, or Most Commented

How To Import & Share A Single Post

1. Choose the post you'd like to re-share and click the "Share" button.

2. You can either "Share Full Post", "Share Photo + Link", "Share Link", or "Share Photo". For more information on what these options mean, head over to our article on What Is The Difference Between Share Photo, Share Link, Share Photo + Link & Share Full Post?

3. After selecting the portion of the content you'd like to share, finish editing in the Post Editor. 

Note:  Keep in mind Videos and GIFs cannot be pulled via Find Content. For these posts, the media will be published as a static image, and for some platforms with a link to the video. 

Here you can choose a Category, select the profiles you'd like to share to, set your Evergreen settings, and finally add the content to your Queue!

Common Questions

What happens if I try to import a post that is too long for LinkedIn?

When importing, you will always have the chance to edit the post text before adding it to your Queue. 

If you are importing to a LinkedIn profile, we will check the post length (including any links and images), and warn you if the post exceeds LinkedIn’s 1300 character limit. 

You can then edit the text so that it doesn’t exceed the character limit.
