How to Edit or Delete Social Posts


Social media provides you with the means to build, mix and promote business engagement, conversation, and supplier and partner-generated social content. Social content comes in many forms (audio, text, video, images, etc.). Suppliers create social content for partners that is co-branded with the partner’s social accounts and allows the partner to push social content to their connections and followers. This content is continuously updated by the supplier and pushed out to partners.

Tips for when you create your posts:

  • We will limit your social posts for Twitter to 280 characters.
  • Images are considered in the Twitter character count of 280 characters. 
  • LinkedIn rejects social posts containing links that use any of the following characters: "{", "}", "|", "\", "^", "`".

After a post is created you can edit any of the content except the Post Type. If you do not want the post to run as the current Post Type, you can delete the post.
