August 2017 Update

Hi there Social Media Wizards!

It is time again for another update on Socialius and what we’ve been up to!

The month of August has been hectic. Moonlighting as a parent and doing my best to manage a full-time startup has kept me very busy! But I have managed to get lots of work done, although mentally, I’m pretty worn out!

Labs

There are way too many ideas that may not make the cut to fit in the sidebar! So I’ve added ‘Labs’ functionality so that users are able to elect and test Lab features.

This is where cutting edge innovation will likely take place for the most part. I’m very excited to even imagine what we’ll be able to come up with for you to use!

LinkedIn

We’re in the process of adding support for LinkedIn to Socialius.

Add Media to Messages

You may now add media such as pictures and GIFs to your outbound messages, such as Tweets. We will soon be finishing this up to include support for video.

Multi-Messenger (Alpha)

We now have support to send a message via multiple accounts. Support has been extended to pages that feature messaging such as Guidance, Interesting Engine and others.

In addition, support for scheduling messages have been implemented. You may now schedule messages, even for multiple accounts using this simple addition.

This new feature will definitely save you time and possibly even hassle.

Media Now Shows on Timeline

I don’t know how I missed this one but it dawned on me, Mike it’s 2017, media is all over the place. So I chose to follow what Social Media networks are actually doing. Twitter and Facebook are both showing media when you scroll… automatically handling playback of the media.

Currently we’re supporting all media from pictures, to GIFs to movie files such as MP4s. If and as files are adopted we’ll be adding them. As always, please feel free to contact us and let us know if there is anything we’re missing.

So, please enjoy this new feature. It’s still a bit unrefined but this will be tackled soon.

Delete Tweets

This was another small feature that was overlooked. You may now delete Tweets from Twitter.

Micro updates
  • Guidance page now shows in tabular format.
  • Several improvements have been made to the Dashboard page. Such as the addition of refresh buttons to sub-elements.
  • Fixed issue w/ fetching some user sent Tweets from Twitter.

Suggestions? Comments?

I would definitely love to hear from you! Please don’t hesitate to share and ideas or feedback via the Contact us page.

July 2017 Progress Update

Hello Socialites!

The month of July has been full of activity that we’re proud to update you about.

Infrastructure Solidified

As you may know, Socialius was built to support millions of users and beyond. With this in mind it’s very important to get data consistency correct, in addition to other complicated aspects.

We’ve based our platform on some of the latest technology that powers some of the most popular companies. With this much expertise is needed as well as time to execute, test and repeat til satisfactory. After several months of diligent and very difficult, very complicated work, we’ve finally secured the results we’ve been expecting.

Now it’s finally time to go back to innovating!

Speed Improvements

Speed and responsiveness of our platform are very important to us. We live in the age of instant and Socialius is definitely no exception. We’ve refactored and rebuilt many original areas of our application to bring you the speed you need.

This has involved seriously utilizing caching such as Redis/Memcached and NoSQL technologies in a containerized environment for scalability. Several, several hours (days) and have went into perfecting this solution.

It wasn’t easy but it was definitely worth it!

New Features

Easy Scheduler / Multi-sender (alpha)

Early on, one of my original thoughts was to have a way to send tweets from multiple accounts, or the ability to schedule for multiple. This technology has been implemented into the platform. In addition, I figured it would be great to be able to use this on any page within Socialius, so that was also added.

Over the next week this will be improved further and will expand to more pages.

Page updates

Scheduler page has been updated. It now features our ‘Easy Scheduler’.

Dashboard has been updated, there is a new format to displaying your follower / following changes. This should make it easy to understand the latest changes quickly.

Interesting page has been updated, we’ve added a table header to help digest what the rows contain.

Onboarding issue corrected. There was an issue that affected new users sub accounts not having data available. This has been corrected and we’ve made things a bit more intuitive.

Many other ‘spot’ updates have been performed on many of odds and ends.

Other Updates

Easy Scheduler is now able to copy content into it to make tweeting easier.

Early Access Invites

More early access invitations are being sent out to applicants. We’re checking for platform stability at the same time and will invite faster as stability is verified.
