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.

New Year, New Social Media Goodies!

Happy New Year to all!

It’s been an extremely busy Holiday season or us here at Socialius. Our best gift has by far been the ability to work on Socialius for over a year. It may not sound like much of a gift, but it truly is, the suspense of release is killing us!

New Goodies for Socialius

NEW DESIGN

One thing that’s on our minds is the current state of our frontend. We whipped something up back in 2015 to get us going but upon revisiting it appears it inadequate for our purposes. This is a side effect of the tremendous coding growth of Socialius from the 2015 days. With more content on the backend, the frontend needs to be able to communicate this to prospects and users.

INTERESTING ENGINE

The Interesting Engine is a concept that I have been able to designate as a need within our application. Blindly (without worrying about what other services are doing). Basically, it’s a way for you to discover new and exciting, useful content for your Social Media networks, although we currently only support Twitter (this is planned to rapidly change by Q2 this year.

I wish I could elaborate more, but please be patient.

MANY FIXES AND PREPARING FOR RELEASE

Last year I was pretty close to hitting the go button. Thankfully I didn’t. Socialius at the time was still missing what I felt were essential core features. Sure, I had most other aspects covered and even some innovative tooling such as Language Sentiment before much if not all of my competition (this was a bummer as I thought it’d make for an impressive release).

On a personal note; at the time I also had a full-time job which kept me quite busy. I was an Innovation Engineer at a large Fortune company so you can imagine the workflow. With my resignation, I’ll be able to dedicate myself to Socialius!

In close, Socialius is definitely on its way. I can continuously work for hours, through days and nights, to give you the Social Media management tool sets that you need.
