The Bundle Post development team has been hard at work on a copious amount of back-end systems upgrades. Many of the things we have been working on are not things you can actually see, but server enhancements and scalability upgrades that are the underlying foundation for the larger feature additions that are in development. There are so many groundbreaking social media management capabilities coming down the pipe in the next several months, but we have to wait to share all that. However, we did roll out a few enhancements to the automated hashtagging functions within the system that we are sure you’re going to appreciate.
For those of you that are unaware, part of the Bundle Post 20 patent pending claims is our Automated Hashtagging System. This feature enables you to identify exact keywords, phrases and company names that you would like the system to locate in the text of curated and marketing posts, then automatically convert those into replaced hashtags or @mentions you desire. Not only can you schedule 100 content curation and social media posts rapidly with total control over what is scheduled, but you can also hashtag those 100 social media posts in about one second!
Another use for the Bundle Post Hashtag function is to automatically turn company names into their @ Twitter names. You can simple tell the system what exactly to find (example Bundle Post) and instead of replace the company name in the text of the post with a specific hashtag, you can tell the system to replace it with the Twitter name (@BundlePost). So anytime “Bundle Post” appears in the text of a post within the system, it will be modified to display @BundlePost. Pretty cool huh? Yes, we know. :-)
Here’s what the system looks like -
With the background explained, lets discuss the enhancements to the hashtag system that is now live for all users.
Bundle Post Auto Hashtag Function Upgrade:
1) Sorting View – Previously when you opened and viewed a Hashtag folder in Bundle Post, the keyword list for that folder were displayed in recent order, putting the most recently added keyword and replacement hashtag at the top. We found this very difficult to easily find keywords and replacement hashtags contained in the folders. Now – when you view a hashtag folder or open a folder to hashtag your scheduled posts, they are all displayed alphabetically. making it easy to find/view specific keywords in your list.
2) Hashtag Order – We have made the actual hashtag system more intelligent to ensure that single word finds aren’t preempted by phrases when you run hashtags in the system. Previously the system would hashtag your scheduled posts in the same sequence in which you added the hashtags into that folder, similar to the old sorting view we described above. What that meant was that if you had a keyword/hashtag for the single word “Social” before the phrase “Social Media” in your hashtag folder, the system would find and hashtag the word “social to #social” then not be able to find the exact phrase “social(space)media”, leaving your posts looking like this: #Social Media is awesome.
The new functionality ensures that whatever sequence you have added keywords or phrases to your hashtag folders, the system will always hashtag phrases with multiple words in them first, then hashtag single words after that. The new intelligent function tracts all of your hashtags listed and determines how many words you have in each Find field and uses that information to intelligently automate the hashtagging of your scheduled posts.
What you will potentially find is that keywords that were not being hashtagged even though you had them listed in your folder are now being discovered properly by the system. You will also be able to more easily manage the keywords and hashtags within Bundle Post to ensure your posts are always hashtagged and done so properly.
The Bundle Post social media marketing, content curation and content management tool is a completely unique approach that gives you complete control of your posts and gives you the time to engage and get results. All of the automation resides in the back office, so nothing is auto posted to your newsfeeds.
We would love to hear your thoughts on the new hashtag functions, so comment below on how you’re using the Bundle Post hashtag system.
