Content Calendar

In comparison to Sprout Social, Sociality.io’s Content Calendar combines familiar to you Calendar, Drafts and Sprout Queue. (Unfortunately, post via RSS and Find content features are not available in Sociality.io.) 

Discover how Sociality.io Publish mode can help you to achieve more by doing less and save you time. 

Firstly, Sociality.io Publish tool offers several ways to display your content: Calendar and Social feed. 

Everything is displayed on one dashboard where content is categorized by color. Each color indicates a type of content and what action it requires. For example, yellow color tells you that a content waiting for approval or is saved to drafts. 

The calendar can be customized to your preferences. You can change the view of the calendar with month, week and agenda view. Also, you can view your content in a calendar view and Social feed, that displays a zoomed version of all posts. You can pay attention to more details, for example, as fewer posts are being displayed on a screen.

Creating a new social media post is very intuitive and in fact, can be done in 3 different ways.

Approval process

In Sociality.io social media posts, creators can either send for approval, schedule or publish right away (depending on access and permission).

When a social media marketer sends a post for approval, it appears in yellow color on the calendar dashboard.

You can approve it right away. Or open for a preview where you can either edit it, add a note, approve or delete it.

Sociality.io Engage VS Sprout Social Messages

Sociality.io is a tool that brings structure to the way companies communicate with followers/subscribers.

The engage section shows you every person, who has left comment or message. The system organizes and gathers comments and direct messages in one place. Sociality.io treats them as important points of interaction. Thus, you can filter all requests, archive, create a custom report and many more features to ensure a productive engagement with your audience.

Although the layout is different in comparison to Sprout Social, similar features are hidden in different places. 

Also, it is an ideal tool for team collaboration, because you can:

  1. Send message or comment by inserting a pre-made template 
  2. Respond by sending a visual content
  3. You can reply to a message and archive it to share with colleagues in reports
  4. You can “Add a note” for your teammates
  5. Assign the conversation to a teammate
  6. Star as important 
  7. Archive
  8. You can fill-in audiences’ personal information (their phone number, email, adress, and personal notes) 

However, you will probably miss User tracking, as Sociality.io’s version is more simplistic and doesn’t provide you additional information. Sprout Social gathers entire history of all points of interaction with every user such as tweets, mentions, and direct messages. Also, Feed feature is not available in Sociality.io. 

4. Sociality.io Report VS Sprout Social Reports

Measuring performance and analyzing your social media marketing presence is a major challenge. It takes time to gather all the data from different sources. Sprout Social and Sociality.io prepare reports in seconds.
