Social Chatter: Social Media Marketing Talk Show - Episode 230



Facebook Creator Studio App, A Companion to Creator Studio

In Facebook news, they have launched the Facebook Creator Studio app for iOS and Android.

With the Facebook Creator Studio app, you can manage and edit Facebook Page posts, see performance analytics and respond to messages. You can even manage multiple Facebook Pages at once.

Facebook had this to say about the Creator Studio app.

The app is an evolution of and mobile complement to Creator Studio, the desktop hub dedicated to helping creators and publishers manage their content, track performance, and connect meaningfully with their audiences on Facebook. The new experience offers the same actionable insights and meaningful engagement metrics, all from the ease of a mobile device.

Here is a look at the Facebook Studio Creator App.

Why The Facebook Creator Studio App Matters For Your Business

If you previously used the Facebook Creator app, which shut down in March 2019, the Facebook Creator Studio app is essentially a replacement with a new interface. Keep in mind that the Creator Studio app does not allow you to create new posts (right now).

As a business, if you struggle with keeping up with Facebook Page posts from fans or want to better track your Page performance through Facebook Insights, the Facebook Creator Studio app does these things well (and saves you time). We expect to see post creation in a future update.


Schedule Instagram Comments Using Later

In Instagram news, if you are a Later user, you can craft, schedule and automatically post the first comment on your Instagram posts.


Why Scheduling Instagram Comments Matters For Your Business

While you can only schedule the first comment on your Instagram post on all Later paid plans, by having the ability to schedule Instagram comments, you can plan out which Instagram hashtags to use ahead of time.

Remember, you can schedule Instagram comments (in addition to hashtags).

To add a first comment on Instagram using Later, follow these steps.

  1. Open up the post scheduler in Later. This is available on desktop, iOS or Android.
  2. Enter your hashtags or any text in the first comment.
  3. Schedule your post as usual (add your as well)
  4. You have just learned how to schedule Instagram comments!

Once you have scheduled your first Instagram comment, you may want to optimize the hashtags you used (or that first comment) to see if you have the right hashtag categories or text and whether it drives engagement with your followers.
