After you've connected your social media accounts to HubSpot, you can set up auto-publishing for your blog, allow other users in your account to post messages, and select default social accounts.

You can also add links to your social media pages on your HubSpot template with the Follow Me module, and connect your Bitly account to HubSpot to use your own branded short domain when shortening links in social posts.

Set up blog auto-publishing

If your blog is hosted on HubSpot, you can set up blog auto-publishing to publish a social post with a link to your blog content on your social accounts when you publish a new blog post. 

These social posts include the blog post title, meta description, link, and featured image, and are published 15 minutes after the blog post is published.

  • In your HubSpot account, click the settings icon settings in the main navigation bar.
  • In the left sidebar menu, navigate to Marketing > Social.
  • In the accounts table, click Enable in the Blog auto-publish column next to your social account.
  • In the dialog box, click the Select a blog dropdown menu and select one or more blog(s).
  • Click Submit.

Please note: blog auto-publishing is not available for Instagram accounts because links are not allowed on Instagram posts.
