Select social accounts in the composer (Legacy)

This composer is set to retire. See Create and publish posts for current version information.

You can select one or multiple social accounts to post to in the legacy composer, making it easy to share posts efficiently across any of your social networks. In the legacy composer, select or hover over Click to select a social network to see the full list of your connected social accounts.

Note: YouTube channels don’t appear in the Social Profile Picker, because YouTube video uploads are done separately, and then shared out to other social accounts afterward. See Publish a video to YouTube for details.

Search social accounts

Quickly find the social account(s) you want by searching the username.

Start entering the social account username, and then select the account from the results that populate. The number count in the right of the box increases as you select more social accounts.

Pin social accounts

Try pinning the social accounts you use every day. This auto-selects the accounts each time you compose a post.

Hover over a social account, and then click the pin icon . An upright pin means the social account is pinned; an angled pin means it is unpinned.

Tip: If you don't want to send a post to a pinned account, you can temporarily deselect it by clicking its social account icon in the list.

Mark social accounts as favorites

Boost publishing efficiency by marking commonly used social accounts as favorites. This reorders your social account list to display the favorites at the top for quick access, and eliminates having to scroll through the list.

Hover your mouse over a social account, and then click the star icon . A yellow star means favorite; a transparent star means unfavorite.

Tip: Select all your favorites at once by clicking the Selectarrow and then clicking Favorites.

Select social accounts by team

Members of teams in an organization can easily select all social accounts managed by that team in just two clicks.

Click the Select arrow and then select the team from the list.

Add social networks

You can add social networks to your dashboard from either your streams, in Social networks and teams under your profile, and in the legacy composer.

  1. Select or hover over Click to select a social network, then click Add Social Network + at the bottom.
  2. Organization members: Select Select Destination to add the social network to an organization or your Private Social Networks.
  3. Select the social network.
  4. Connect then follow the steps to authorize the account.
