Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages

#Loomly — Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages

Last week, we launched Audience Targeting features, allowing you to defined a Preferred Audience and/or Audience Restrictions when publishing a post on Facebook.

Today, we are sharing a tip with you: you can take advantage of these Audience Targeting features to publish Facebook posts in multiple languages to a single Facebook Page.

It’s really simple:

  • Create a new post in Post Builder with the first language you want to use, for instance English:

Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages Step 1

  • Define Audience Restrictions to only show this post to English-speaking users:

Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages Step 2

  • Schedule that post and then Duplicate it:

Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages Step 3

  • Create a new post in Post Builder with the second language you want to use, for instance French:

Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages Step 4

  • Define Audience Restrictions to only show this post to French-speaking users:

Publish Facebook Posts In Multiple Languages Step 5

  • Schedule your post and duplicate it again, as many times as you need, depending on how many languages you want to translate your post into.

This way, each version of your post will only be visible to the audience you define: English-speaking users will see your post in English, French-speaking users will see your post in French, and so on.

We hope you find this tip useful and leverage it to publish Facebook posts in multiple languages.

As always, let us know how things go,

#Update — Publish Even More Accurately With Your New Facebook Audience Targeting Features

Today, we are launching new features allowing you to publish posts even more accurately from Post Builder: Facebook Audience Targeting.

Loomly Facebook Audience Targeting Demo

On the one hand, Preferred Audience lets you choose the people you would like to reach in Facebook Newsfeed: the people in these groups are more likely to see your post.

You can define a Preferred Audience with the following criteria:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • “Interested in”
  • Relationship status
  • Education status
  • Country
  • Region
  • Locale (language)
  • Interests

On the other hand, Audience Restrictions  allow you to limit who will be able to see your post: only the people in the audiences you choose will be able to see this post, anywhere on Facebook.

You can define Audience Restrictions with the following criteria:

  • Age
  • Gender
  • Country
  • Region
  • Locale (language)

These Facebook Audience Targeting features are already available to all Loomly users: login now and check these out!

Instagram Content Publishing API

#Loomly — What About The Instagram Content Publishing API?

As you are certainly aware, until now, third-party applications & social media tools such as Loomly were not able to post automatically to Instagram.

On January 30, 2018 Instagram announced an update of the Instagram Graph API, including interesting new possibilities, in particular one long-awaited feature: automated publishing.

Instagram content publishing api homepage screenshot

As you can read in the documentation of the Instagram API:

The Content Publishing API is a subset of Instagram Graph API endpoints that allow you to publish media objects.

So, the big question is: will Loomly be integrating with the Instagram Content Publishing API?

The short answer is: we will implement the new Instagram Content Publishing API as soon as possible.

The longer answer is:

  • This new Instagram Content Publishing API is currently available in closed beta and we are getting in line to get access to it: as soon as we do, we will be able to implement it within a couple of days.
  • In any case, it is worth noting that this new Instagram Content Publishing API only allows automated publishing of single images, which means that for all other formats (videos & slideshows), you will still need to receive a notification and publish your posts manually.
  • We also need to keep in mind that automated posting via the Instagram Content Publishing API is only available for Instagram Business Accounts.
  • In the meantime, we are also looking into ways to offer support for Instagram Stories.

As always, if you have any question about this — or about anything else, for that matter — please feel free to reach out to us at support@loomly.com: we will be delighted to assist you.

Thank you very much for your enthusiasm!

Manage All Your Media Assets Inside Your Brand-New Content Library

#Update — Manage All Your Assets Inside Your Brand-New Content Library

We’ve been a little more quiet than usual lately, as we have been working on some big surprises for you all, the first of which is this major update, bringing a brand-new Content Library to your favorite social media tool.

You can access your Content Library from both the List View & the Calendar View via the Library icon in your Toolbar.

Loomly Content Library Icon

Inside your Content Library, you can:

  • Upload photos & videos to be used later when creating new posts.
  • Edit new and existing files metadata, for instance renaming assets per your internal conventions.
  • Delete assets you no longer need.
  • Apply changes to multiple files with bulk actions.

Of course, you can select any file — and even multiple files — in your Content Library and create a post from there:

Content Library Build Post From Media

Conversely, you can access your Content Library from Post Builder and simply select a file — or multiple files — on the fly when creating a new post:

Oh, and one more thing: all the files you have ever used in all of your Loomly posts since Day 1 have automatically been saved into your Content Library, ready to use again.

This brand-new Content Library is already available to all Loomly users: check it out now!

Once again, this feature was inspired by your amazing feedback and developed thanks to your outstanding support: thank you so much to you all.

We are immensely grateful to be able to build Loomly for you every day and we are happy to report that we have some pretty sweet surprises coming your way real soon: stay tuned.

Publish Tweets With 280 Characters & YouTube Twitter Cards

#Update — Publish Tweets With 280 Characters & YouTube Twitter Cards

On Tuesday, Twitter officially rolled out the 280-character limit to all users: as of today, you can publish tweets with 280 characters via Loomly as well.

Besides this increased character limit, your post creation process remains exactly the same in Post Builder:

  • If you want to publish a post to multiple channels, including Twitter, define generic content first.
  • Fine-tune your content for each channel, making sure that your Twitter copy is 280-character long (or less).
  • Links & media respectively count as 23 characters and 0 characters against this limit.
  • As announced yesterday, you can include images up to 5MB and videos up to 200MB and 5 minutes in your tweets.

One little thing we have improved along the way is post preview for tweets including a YouTube video, which now show up in Loomly (and, of course, get published to Twitter) with a video Twitter card:

Publish Tweets With 280 Characters & YouTube Twitter Cards Post Preview

That’s it for today — a quick update letting you publish 280-character tweets and the ability to include YouTube Twitter Cards in your posts — until we bring something much bigger to you in the upcoming weeks: stay tuned!

As always, thank you so much for your support: you are the best users we could dream of.

Upload Larger Media Assets To Your Posts

#Update — Upload Larger Media Assets To Your Posts

Loomly now allows you to upload larger media assets to your posts from Post Builder:

  • Up to 10MB for photos on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+ & LinkedIn — and 5MB on Twitter.
  • Up to 200MB and 5 minutes for videos (although we do recommend videos less than 30MB and shorter than 2 minutes for an optimal experience).

Upload Larger Media Assets To Your Posts From Post Builder In Loomly

This update is already available to all Loomly users: login and create a new post now.

Along with faster upload and GIF to MP4 conversion, the increased limits above are in fact the tip of the iceberg…

We have been working on a brand-new architecture, which is the foundation for two two very nice new media-related features, coming by the end of the year.

We can’t wait to share these exciting updates with you: stay tuned!

As always, thank you so much for your incredible feedback and your continuous help: it’s an honor for our team to get up every morning and build Loomly for such an amazing community of users.

You are truly the best.
