🔸 Link post: A post with a featured URL, typically includes a preview of the URL's content.
🔸 Image or Video post: A media-rich post that emphasizes the images or video shared.
🔸 Text post: A post that only consists of text. It can be styled, hyperlinked, and have emojis.
Customize content: Enter the post’s title and internal commentary.
- Post titles are for internal reporting purposes. Link posts's use the links' meta titles, and image, video, and text posts's titles are manually added.
- Internal commentary is the text readers will see on the post created in EveryoneSocial to add context and drive action.
Share settings: Posts have two CTA (call-to-action) checkbox options. A third option, "Engageable," may present itself for Link Posts.
🔹 Allow Sharing: Allow the post to be shared to social networks.
🔹 Branded: Consider the post Branded Content in Analytics and on Leaderboards.
