Step 1… Social media connection… Now we need to add pages to the service for which we will configure cross-posting. We click on the “Add account” button.
We connect pages on Instagram, Vkontakte and Facebook one by one.
In the case of VK and FB, the connection goes through authorization in the social network. And in order to connect a page on Instagram, you need to specify a username and password – this is due to the peculiarities of Instagram.
Step 2… Post creation… A list of all connected pages and accounts will be displayed in the column on the left. To add the first publication, click “Add publication”.
Next, we write the text of the post, if necessary, add emoji. Then we click on the photo icon to attach an image or video.
The photo editor will open, where you can crop the picture or change the scale. If you want to add another photo to the publication (for example, you need to publish a gallery on Instagram), then click on the plus sign.
Step 3… How to do cross-posting… After the publication is created, we return to the editor window, where we alternately click on the lines with accounts on Instagram and Facebook. The post is automatically copied for publication.
Now you can adapt the post for each social network separately. For example, for posting on Instagram, you can specify the geolocation and publish the first comment with hashtags.
It remains to indicate the date and time of publication below. Finally, click on “Add publication”.
All publications with a publication date in the future will be located on the “Scheduled” tab. Thus, you can do cross-posting even to several accounts of the same social network.
