How To Get More Engagement With Randomized Hashtags & RSS Auto-Posting

SmartSocial’s social media management software  has recently released an update which will enable you to randomly insert hashtags to your social media posts when using the SmartSocial RSS Auto Poster. This will automatically push content updated on a particular RSS feed to your chosen social media channels.

What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a format for delivering regularly changing web content. Many news-related sites, weblogs and other online publishers syndicate their content as an RSS Feed to whoever wants it.

Why are hashtags important?


Schedule posts to Instagram with SmartSocial

Since Instagram has not released an API that allows third party applications such as SmartSocial to schedule updates (and don’t plan to), it’s proving very difficult for business to take advantage of this extremely engaging social network as each Instagram update is a manual, time-consuming process. The services that do claim to offer this functionality employ a team of staff to manually post to your Instagram accounts at the scheduled time on your behalf, meaning that you have to share your Instagram login details with complete strangers who have the ability to get your Instagram account permanently shut down or worse – severely damage your brand’s reputation.

Just one last thing before you start rocking you social media accounts. Exactly how should your image look to maximize the viewing in your News Feed, timeline, or stream?

With everything that goes into finding and creating great social media images, the one thing that many of us forget about is the size. This can be a grave mistake as the size, shape, height, width and orientation are all extremely important and have a huge effect on how well your image is received in social media streams.
