10 Useful Statusbrew Features You Might Not Know About
At Statusbrew, we’re always on the lookout for ways to remove friction from your workday. We keep introducing a handful of features that can quickly add up to make a big difference when you’re trying to get your work done.
However, these updates that can help you save time and gain greater insight into your social performance can sometimes go without being noticed.
To help you make the most of Statusbrew, we created a list of 10 great features from — Publishing to Reporting — you maybe didn’t know existed so far.
1. Create posts tailored to each social channel
Scheduling to multiple channels in one go is certainly a time-saver, but you may want to change the content to resonate with the different audience on different platforms. Tone down the emojis on LinkedIn, add more hashtags on Instagram and include links to your website on Facebook and Twitter, all that to squeeze out the most of every post you publish.
However, having to create individual posts from scratch each time, is time-consuming and introduces room for error. To help you be efficient, we've developed the most powerful omnichannel Content Editor on Statusbrew, which allows you to create customized posts for key social media networks while being able to see the preview in real-time.
2. Customize links in your posts (UTM Parameters and Link Shorteners)
While creating link posts for your social media platforms, you may want to add UTM parameters to your links to gauge the effectiveness of your campaigns and identify the best ways to drive more visitors to your website.
Add custom UTM parameters to the links in your social posts right with one easy click in the Composer without the need to use a separate tool. You can either select dynamic variables, which auto-populate parameters as per each social network or create your own!
Pro-tip: After adding UTM parameters to the links, you can opt to shorten links to keep your posts looking tidy, and to save characters. All Statusbrew users have access to the brew.social link shortener.

You can also consider adding tags to every post in the campaign. This tag will appear as a choice in the Composer for all organization members to select when publishing content. Members in an organization can likewise filter the Content Planner by tag to see all content scheduled for the campaign.
3. Amplify existing engagement efforts by scheduling and monitoring ads for Facebook
Statusbrew's Boost Post gives users a simple way to schedule ads for Facebook directly, and boost published Facebook Page posts to ensure their content reaches its full potential in just a few clicks.
To get started with boosting, you need to add a Facebook ad account to Statusbrew.
4. Dark posts (Facebook)
The last thing you want to do is alienate or annoy your audience by improper targetting and seem like a spammy organization on Facebook. Instead, you can enable the Dark Post option using Statusbrew to hide your Facebook posts or ads from your timeline.
Unpublished or 'dark' Facebook posts do not appear on a page’s Timeline or in fans’ News Feeds and are created by businesses specifically for advertising purposes.
Using dark posts to promote content to a wide audience should lead to more conversations around the content you’re highlighting.
Fortunately, with Statusbrew’s Engage Inbox—and the ability to reply directly to threaded comments—is an effective method to facilitate the management of these conversations and ensure you never miss a message.
5. Moderation rules for social support in Engage Inbox
If you are a business with a decent following on your social media accounts, you most likely deal with spam daily.
Thus, to help you combat spam and trolls before they have a chance to ruin your reputation, we came up with totally customizable moderation rules for your social media accounts that help you save time.
With these in Engage Inbox, you can update your tickets automatically based on the conditions you specify, including:
- Close tickets
- Mark tickets as Spam
- Assign tickets to right team members
- Automatically Hide or Delete Facebook and Instagram comments on posts and ads
These moderation rules handle the obvious offenders automatically. To set up moderations rules,
