Posting type: When you’re using Bit Social, you can choose from different ways to make posts. You can choose only custom message, use a link card to preview a webpage, or include a featured image to make your posts more visually appealing. These options give you flexibility in how you share content on social media, helping you connect with your audience in the best way possible.

  • Only Custom Message: If you choose “Only Custom Message,” the smart tags you selected in the custom message option will be shared to your social platforms.
  • Link Card: With the “Link Card” post type, you can create posts that include a link along with a preview card. This preview card shows a title, description, and image from the linked page.
  • Feature Image: If you select “Feature Image” as the post type, your WordPress post and its featured image will be shared on your social media platforms.

Trim Message: With the “Trim Message” feature, you can shorten your post message. This is handy because different social platforms have character limits, so trimming ensures your message fits within those limits while still getting your point across.
