Hey, everybody, thanks for watching. Today I’m going to show you how to use the social integration feature on SimpleTexting. This allows you to post onto Facebook, tweet on Twitter, and send text messages, all from the SimpleTexting app.

Here’s how it works. Click New Campaign, and you’ll see there’s a Facebook and Twitter tab here. Go ahead and click Connect Facebook. You’ll be directed to your social profiles page. Now, click on Connect to Facebook and log in if you haven’t already. Just that easy.

Now we’re going to do the same thing for Twitter. It’ll ask you to authorize the app. Click Authorize. Now let’s go back to New Message. Let’s say, “SimpleTexting’s social features are AWESOME.” So, we can send this as a text, we can post it onto Facebook—making sure to select the wall that you want it posted to if you’re using a company page—and even tweet it on Twitter to our followers. Click Next to confirm everything.

The really cool thing is that we can schedule this. Click Schedule, choose a date and time, and there you go.

You can also choose to send the message right away. You’ll see that it’ll show up on your Facebook page and Twitter feed at the same time as your text blast goes out to your followers.

Thanks for watching, and happy texting!
