Scheduling, queueing and publishing
Facebook’s timeline mechanisms tend to group image posts that were published within small timespans.
If you would like your photos to not be grouped and appear individually, please use larger timespans (at least couple hours).
Unfortunately, we have no control over that mechanism, as it is internal Facebook behaviour.
This is usually caused by settings you have chosen during initial Posftity launch.To change those settings, simply go to Facebook where you should be able to double-check privacy settings for Postfity shares. Follow these steps:
1. Go to your Facebook app settings, usually at https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=applications
2. Find Postfity app on list anc click “Edit settings”
3. At the “visibility of app and posts” choose “Public” “Friends” or “Friends of Friends”
4. Click the “Save” button
Pending posts limit is a number of maximum posts scheduled in your queue
For example, if you will schedule 10 posts on the Starter account with the 10 posts limit, it won’t be possible to schedule another post until the first one will be published. After the publication of the first post, you will be left with 9 posts in the queue, so you can schedule another one!
No, the number of pending post is multiplied by the number of social media profiles that you are scheduling it to.
So when you are scheduling the same post to Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn it will be counted as 3 posts.
How will my link attached to the post look like? My link preview is not generated. Link preview looks different than it should.
Your attached link is handled just like the one added directly to the social media platform.
You can check exactly how different social media will handle the link preview and description, and also force some of the social media sites to fetch updated information than the cached one.
- Facebook – You can post your link into the Facebook Crawler Debugger to fetch new updated information from the site and see the generated preview.
- Twitter – When posting to Twitter it’s advised to paste your link at the very end of the tweet. Sometimes, when the link is located in the middle of the post, Twitter algorithms won’t recognize it properly. You can check how your link will look like in Card Validator
- Every other social media – only Facebook and Twitter give you the dedicated tool to manage link previews. For other platforms, it’s possible to check the link in some 3rd part app like Rich Preview
If your link preview is generated from the old, cached data, usually the only way is to wait few hours before the platform will fetch new data from the link automatically.
The best way to implement Posfity is to install our browser extension available at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/postfitycom/mjhdfipdhjicefeklelaoeboghggaigc. It’s available for Chrome browser, and it enables you to quickly schedule, queue or publish post immediately – all without leaving pages that you are reading! Really neat and quick way for handling social media content :)
It is possible to tag people and pages when posting on selected social media platforms.
- Facebook – You can tag someone in the post easily with Facebook. Just type in “@”, start typing the name and the pop-up with available pages and profiles will be displayed. Click on the desired name to tag.
- Twitter – When posting to Twitter, just type “@username” inside a post. Just remember to use the username, and not the display name of the profile. Username can be found on twitter just below the display name and is presented in the “@username” format
- Instagram – When posting to Instagram you can tag someone by writing “@username”. When you will get your notification on your phone, paste in the description from your clipboard and make sure that the “@username” is highlighted. If not – delete the last character of the username and there should a pop-up appear to select a person to tag.
LinkedIn, Xing, Vkontakte – Unfortunately it’s not possible to tag someone on this platforms currently
Currently, we only support posting to private profiles, pages that you have admin rights to, and groups that you have admin rights to.
No. The only limitation is the number of posts saved in the queue. If you will empty your queue quickly (for example schedule all 100 posts from Basic account limit in just one hour), you can easily schedule another 100 posts for the next hour etc.
Basically, you can post multiple times more posts daily than the pending post limit of the account – you just need to keep adding them to the queue.
