Version 7.3.2: Instagram Stories, Post Videos to LinkedIn Profiles and Create X (Twitter) Threads

Share Your Stories on Instagram

You can now post your stories to Instagram with Blog2Social! Either navigate to your WordPress media library to upload it, or head straight to the "Share Video" tab in your dashboard to get started. Select "Share as Story" when posting your video to Instagram. You can post your story right away or schedule it for a later time as you would do with any other video post. Blog2Social will publish your story at your set time.

Please note that if you want to share your video as a story to Instagram, no text is necessary for posting, and will not appear on the video when you post it.


Post Videos to LinkedIn Profile

Post videos to your personal LinkedIn profile page! Share engaging videos not only to your LinkedIn business pages but to your profile as well - straight from your Blog2Social dashboard. Simply select your profile from the network overview. Post your video immediately or schedule it for the best time.

If you haven’t connected to a LinkedIn profile yet, you can do so in your network settings.

Create X (Twitter) Threads

On X (formerly Twitter) you can share posts exceeding 280 characters as threaded posts, allowing your followers to read your message in its entirety. Easily create and manage your X threads with Blog2Social. To activate this function, select the check box at the bottom of the text field for X in the post preview editor or as a default setting in your post templates for X. Blog2Social will then separate your copy into X posts (of a maximum of 280 characters each) automatically. Optionally, place dividers within the text field to decide where one X post in the thread ends and the next begins, ensuring your message remains coherent.

Use Custom Permalinks for Sharing Scheduled Posts

When you schedule unpublished blog posts for social media sharing, WordPress generates technical links that might look like “yourwebsite.com/?p=123” for these unpublished posts. This ensures accurate redirection of the link to the appropriate webpage once the post is officially published. The new option enables you to replace these default links with more engaging and distinctive, “talking” URLs, for instance your blog’s title  “yourwebsite.com/[blog-post-name]”. Please follow the instructions below carefully when using this option.
