What is SocialFlow?
SocialFlow is a social distribution and monetization platform for media companies. Publishers use SocialFlow to distribute social content and find monetization opportunities across social networks. Journalists use it to extend their reach and engagement in the social sphere.
Why should I enable this integration?
Integrating Bitly with SocialFlow allows you to use Bitly short links with your social media content, allowing you to get a complete view of the content you're sharing through Bitly links. You can access Bitly’s reporting while also benefiting from SocialFlow’s optimization algorithm to improve social media engagement.
Who can set this up?
Any admin in SocialFlow with a Bitly account.
How do I connect SocialFlow to Bitly?
SocialFlow's integration requires a Bitly API key, which will no longer work as of March, 2020. Until then, you'll need to have a paid Bitly subscription and contact our support team to request a key.
Now you'll use that key to connect your accounts:
- Log in to SocialFlow.
- Click Settings.
- Select the Application tab.
- Select Link Shorteners.
- Click Add Link Shortener.
- Select Bitly.
- If you have a custom domain in Bitly, enter the domain.
- Enter your Bitly login name and API Key.
- Select the relevant social account or Client Wide to use for all social accounts.
- Click Save.
Now any link you enter in SocialFlow, whether added manually or from an RSS feed, will be shortened with Bitly automatically. To preview a short link, you can click Shorten Links in the compose box, but this step is not necessary.
