Blogging. A valuable opportunity to broadcast one’s social, political and cultural views to the world? A way of publishing updates and encouraging participation in a community? Or a chance to let everyone know what you had for dinner last night?
Whatever you use it for, we wanted to make sure that the new SocialGO V2 blogging tools weren’t just another feature – but a quality publishing product in itself. To get going, simply click on the ‘New Blog Post’ link in the toolbar that runs across the top of your site.
1. Blog Types
SocialGO lets you make standard text posts, photo posts or video posts. Each is formatted differently to display your content in the best possible way.
2. Blog Title/URL
Don’t forget to name the blog, and what you want the URL (or ‘permalink’) of the post to be. This is really important if you’re thinking about SEO.
This bit’s up to you! Dazzle your audience and write your post using our WYSIWYG editor – it’s easy to embed photos, links, videos or directly edit the source HTML.
4. Select Blog
Every SocialGO site can have multiple blogs with different privacy settings – and you can choose which of them your post will be published to. Stay tuned to sgv2.com/blog for some tips on how you can make the most of your multiple blogs, coming soon!
5. Post to Facebook/Twitter
If your SocialGO site is connected to Facebook or Twitter, your followers can be alerted of your blog post when you tick the Facebook and Twitter icons at the bottom of the form.
