What is Sprout Social?
Sprout Social is a social media management platform for companies and agencies. The platform gives you one place to manage social media publishing, analytics, and engagement across all of your social profiles.
Why should I enable this integration?
Sprout Social shortens links that you include in social posts. By connecting to Bitly, those short links are created through your Bitly account. This means you can keep your links and click metrics all in one place, making it easier to track the success of your efforts.
Who can set this up?
Anyone with a Sprout Social account and a Bitly account.
While we are happy to help you with Bitly troubleshooting, like verifying your rate limits, Sprout Social built this integration and can help you if encounter any problems. For more information, visit Sprout Social's Help Center.
