Features of SocioBoard: Social Media Management Platform
The features of SocioBoard meet the basic requirements of social media marketers. That is, marketers can manage multiple social accounts and automate their activities. SocioBoard also offers additional features that can boost your social campaigns.
Here are the features of SocioBoard:
The message feature contains four options in its drop-down list. They are:
- Smart Inbox
- Inbox Message
- My Tasks
- Sent Messages
There is also a filter on the right side of the dashboard. With this filter, you can select the already added social profiles and add some other accounts as well.
With “Smart Inbox”, SocioBoard gives you an alert whenever an action is done on one of your social profiles. For example, when someone follows you on Twitter, you will get a message stating that someone started following you.
You’ll also receive the follower’s data like their follower and following count as well as their bio. This is what that looks like:
You can get these messages for notifications, retweets, @mentions, and new followers. You can manage these messages and profiles in the filter.
This is the normal inbox where you can see the direct messages you receive on various social media profiles. In the filter, you can select which social accounts to view/add new accounts.
Working as a team is the driving factor of an organization. With the “My Tasks” feature, you can assign and schedule tasks to your team members.
On the right side of the dashboard, you can see the “Manage Tasks” tool, where you can see “My Task”, “Team Task”, “Completed Task”, and “Pending Task”.
This is helpful to see only the tasks you want to see on the dashboard for a specific social media account.
This shows you all of the sent messages from the selected accounts. You can manage the accounts through the filter located on the right side of the dashboard.
The drop-down list of this feature contains the list of all social networks that are supported (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) Under each platform, you can see the accounts that were added. You can select an account and see the feed on the wall of that account.

You can schedule this task and save a lot of time. The drop-down list of this menu contains:
- Schedule Messages
With this feature, you can schedule your messages and send them to multiple users at one time. It gives you a huge text space of 5000 characters, so you can compose a detailed message.
On the top-right corner of the tab, you can select the social profiles to which you want to send the message.
You can schedule the message now or you can save it to drafts and schedule it later.
In the SocioQueue, you can see all of the messages that are scheduled.
You can get complete details like the text of the message, who the message was scheduled to, and what the status is. You can search for messages using the search bar.
If you want to delete or edit a message, you can easily do this from here.
You can see the messages that are set as drafts by you. You can schedule them to be sent whenever you want.
Marketers should always expand their social community. So searching for targeted users is an unavoidable task.

You can also see the search history. Here, you can make and refine the perfect search with different keywords.
Measuring your social media performance is an important thing which enables you to come up with efficient strategies.
SocioBoard gives you deep insights into your social media activities. You can see individual reports like Facebook reports, Twitter reports, and combined group reports.

With Twitter reports, you get to know the engagement stats, follower count, amount of new followers in a certain period of time, how many retweets you got, who your top five followers are, etc.
This is really cool.
Here, you can attach a link to a webpage (website/social media page) and fetch content from that link whenever a new post published. Then you can post it onto your selected social groups or pages.
When you click on the “Actions” button, you can see the option for “Add Shareathon”. By clicking on it, you can add the source of the content.
