Creating a social post is easy! You can start from scratch or from an idea or special day.


What is a social post?

E-goi offers a practical feature to create social post campaigns, making communication with your followers easier on various digital platforms.

You can start a campaign from scratch or be inspired by special days and pre-configured ideas for your posts. Additionally, you can integrate content from your blog or website using RSS feeds for automated publication on social media.



Before getting started



  • Make sure you have a Business account on Instagram if you intend to publish on this platform, and that it is properly linked to a Facebook page.
  • Ensure that your E-goi account is integrated with the social networks where you want to publish.
  • Check the image and video formats supported by different social platforms to ensure that your content will be displayed correctly.



Step by step

1) Click on the top right menu and then on Integrations. You will see a page with E-goi's main integrations.


Connecting to Facebook

On the integrations page, locate Facebook, click on the arrow on the right and then on Connect to a Facebook account, log into your Facebook account (if necessary) and authorize the integration.

Important! To integrate with E-goi, your Facebook account must have the role of Administrator with full access to the pages or a role with permission to publish on pages.


Connecting to X (formerly Twitter)

On the integrations page, locate X, click on the arrow on the right and then on Connect to an X account, log into your X account (if necessary) and authorize the integration.

6) Different content for each social network (optional): You can now personalise the content of your post according to each social network: the post length, being formal versus being casual, using different images or emojis.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of content does a social post support?

In addition to text, links, and emojis, it's also possible to include images and videos.



You can add an image or an image carousel by simply clicking on the "upload image" icon each time you want to add another one.

Each social media platform has its own limit:

  • Facebook: up to 10 images.
  • Instagram: up to 10 images.
  • Twitter: up to 4 images.
  • LinkedIn: up to 9 images.
  • Google My Business: 1 image.



You can add a video up to 30 seconds long and less than 35 MB in size in MP4 or MOV format with a maximum resolution of 1920x1080 pixels.

Posts also accept GIF format to display animated images, except for Instagram, which doesn't support this format.


My post wasn't published on the social network I chose

When sending out a social campaign using E-goi, it'll be actually be posted by the social network you've selected (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.). If something wrong happens with it (eg. Facebook is down), E-goi will tell you your post couldn't be published.

If so, try to:

  • Send the campaign again. Social network downtime usually lasts a couple minutes.
  • Reconnect your E-goi account to the social network you'll be posting to. Even though the connection seems on, something may have happened to the network which requires reconnecting.
  • Avoid sending the same or similar posts in a row. Social networks have rules in place to prevent duped or sketchy (ie, virtually identical) posts. You may also be blocked if sending out too many posts in a very short timeframe.
  • Be sure there's no abusive content. Each network has their own rules on this. Check that your post abides by the community standards of all social networks and doesn't breach any copyright. Oh, and make sure your social account wasn't suspended for inappropriate behaviour!
