Targeting possibilities for Social Media posting

Daria

We're currently using HubSpot for Twitter posts, but when it comes to Facebook and LinkedIn... We simply can't, and here's why: we need to use language targeting for Facebook, as our fans speak various languages and we don't have the same message for each audience. Same punishment for LinkedIn: we use the audience targeting tool to be more relevant with our social posts.

I assume that it is quite difficult with LinkedIn as their API seems to be have quite a few restrictions (e.g posting images) but Facebook geo-targeting and language tageting features must be available.

Hi all,

 

The social team is currently working on the infrastructure in order to support Linkedin Post Targeting. This feature is on our radar as something we want to build for our users, but have some steps we need to complete first. Thank you for your valued feedback and your patience.

@LFerrer understood! To clarify this feature is working as designedbut it has only been created for Facebook. Per my comment above, Linkedin retargeting is on our radar, but we have infrastructure work that needs to be completed as a foundation for this feature. Thank you for your patience!

@LFerrer Hi Luciano, can you please reach out to our support team with your specific issue, and our engineering team can take a look. Thank you!

Hi everyone,

 

Thank you all for your feedback. 

 

Quick update, our team has Linkedin post targetting on our radar as a feature we want to complete, however, this will not be delivered in the near feature. We are currently working on our code base to be able to support this feature. 

 

We will keep you posted, and thank you for your patience.

Currently this feature will only be for Facebook image & text, but we look to expand this to Linkedin.

Hi all! Thanks for all of the feedback on this one. Could you help us build the best feature for you by answering a few quick questions? (It will take you less than 3 minutes and we'll build a better feature because of it)

Hey @vernierd that's great to hear, please do send all interested parties from your HUG to this thread to vote!

We were unable to migrate votes from UserVoice to this platform, however we did record them and they will be taken into account. I'll see if I can find this number for you - stay tuned!

Jun 2, 2017

Hello @RDJ72 @troelsfeodor @vernierd @Buxert I can confirm that this is a feature both HubSpot's social and localization product teams are evaluating but that at this time HubSpot does not have an ETA / development roadmap. Rest assured this does not mean that HubSpot is declining to build this feature, but that the product teams are in the process of quantifying demand, understanding the use cases / roadblocks / goals of users and determining how this could fit in with the overall roadmap of the Social product. 

 

The more votes this idea receives the better product management teams are able to quantify demand across HubSpot's user base. I also wanted to let you know that on our previous Ideas Forum this feature had a lot of votes that have also been recorded internally and taken into account. The comments and examples above are incredibly helpful - thank you. 

 

The status of this idea was previous at 'In Planning' and I sincerely apologise that this was an administrative mistake on my part. I am the process of evaluating how Status labels are used / could be improved - and I would love if you could send me your feedback directly. 'In Planning' means a feature is going to be built within the next quarter (that is not the case for this feature) but I am considering introducing a label e.g. 'Evaluating' that better communicates the status of the feature. 

 

Please feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any further questions, concerns or feedback - again I apologise for my previous miscommunication on this thread. 

 

Thanks all.

Hey @RDJ72 apologies for the delay here, I'm in the process of reaching out to our Product Team for feedback on the above. Stay tuned! Thank you.

Hello @mzimmerman @RDJ72 @Julianagrunwald my apologies for getting back to you late, this is something that is been reviewed by our Product teams. Stay tuned here for an update. Could you please provide details of the languages you are most in need of targeting?

Hello, do you have some news about this topic ? We need country targeting for our LinkedIn Company page posts. This is an essential functionality for large companies.  Thank you !

Can't wait to get an update on LinkedIn geo-targeting from HubSpot.

Be able to target audiences on LinkedIn would make life much easier! Currently using multiple tools for social, which is not ideal.

Hello Hubspot,

 

could you give an explanation why this feature is NOT working, if there are some other tools making this possible?

 

Best regards

Hi @jacquimalis 

This is the answer of the support team:

"Alena
The Product Team is working to create a feature for LinkedIn post targeting; however, since the feature doesn't already exist there isn't an immediate resolution for your goal. At this time, the best I can recommend is to continue looking at the Community post so that you can see updates about the feature's progress."
 
This is not helping...

It has been more than 2 years guys since the community asked for this feature! 

Every year you tell us that it is in the roadmap. Have you integrated this feature's development that is SO IMPORTANT for our social media strategy? What is your plan for 2021? 

Best, Elodie

Hi, 

we would definitely need this targeting option, too! Language and country would be enough for us, but it is really essential for the productivity of our company.

This could be a true competitive advantage for Hubspot. There are no tools out there that do this, yes they have updated it some but it's truly non-existent in its functional capacity. Please pleas please update
