A Content Category is a sequential queue of social media content. A piece of social media content can exist in more than one Content Category. The marketer sets the schedule for a content category, not for specific social content. Upon the prescheduled date and time of the post, whichever content is next in the queue will be posted to the designated social media accounts.
When all content in a Content Category has been posted, then the entire queue is automatically randomly re-shuffled. The shuffle will ensure that the first available content in the queue will not have been the last posted content prior to the reshuffle.
Create a Content Category
Within the Social Media module, select Social Campaigns >> Categories from the main menu. Select the 'Add Item' icon located in the top-right corner of the menu bar, and select 'New Social Content Category' from the drop-down menu.
Alternatively, click the [New Social Content Category] button located in the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Enter the name for your Content Category, and select its color from the palette. The campaign calendar is color-coded according to the color that you’ve chosen for each category.
