Exciting Update Facebook Reels on Social Planner

As we string along the wavelength of progression, we are constantly looking to provide features that are in line with the latest trends. Over the recent years, short video content has proven to be a powerful tool within the marketing sphere. In keeping with this trend, we are excited to announce the launch of Facebook Reels in our Social Planner module.

As an account owner, you are now empowered to create and schedule engaging bite-sized video content. Please note that engaging through Facebook Reels is currently limited to pages and not groups. If chosen for a group, Facebook Reels will be shared as a feed post.

Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Navigate to Marketing > Social Planner.
  2. Link your Facebook account via Settings > Integrations.
