Application Update!

We’re excited to announce the release of some major improvements to the look-and-feel of posts. Image thumbnails are now up to 60% larger. The “share” link on standard-style posts has been upgraded, and will now be translated to your local language. By popular request, the source: link has been removed.

Additionally, there are few changes to get ready for the launch of our premium add-ons. Scheduling options are located by clicking the clock icon at the top of each publishing plan. All post counts have been reset to zero, but from now on, more detailed logging will be available in the stats view.

If you don’t see these changes yet, they should appear on your dashboard in the next few days.

We’d love to hear your feedback! Feel free to drop us a line in our forum with any glowing praise, comments, or concerns. And keep checking the Facebook page for updates on our premium add-ons (coming soon!)

Coming Soon: RSS Graffiti Premium Features and a New Look

BIG changes are underway at RSS Graffiti. In May, you’ll notice our new look with an updated logo, website and Facebook app page. We’ll be giving away t-shirts to users who take a cool photo of our logo in an interesting location. Check out our Facebook page for updates!

Starting in May, we’ll also be offering two new premium paid features. Although we’ll continue to offer our basic features for free, the new premium features are specifically designed to help boost engagement with your audience, enabling you to deliver content to Facebook with more speed, flexibility, and insight than ever before. In addition, we will limit the number of FREE posts per Facebook target to 300 per month. For high volume publishers who need more than 300 posts per month (that’s 10 posts per day), we’re offering the Broadcast package, which includes up to 2000 posts per Facebook target page for a flat $5 monthly rate. After we officially launch the post limits in May, we’ll include a 30-day grace period for all current users who post more than 300 times per target page each month.

New Premium Features and Post Limit Package:

OPTIMIZE - $50 per month for ALL PUBLISHING PLANS!
Among a million other tasks, you must manage the creation, distribution AND performance of Facebook content. Optimize is designed with you in mind. Our actionable insights provide a visual guide to which content boosts engagement. This knowledge, paired with the new advanced scheduling tool, empowers you to quickly adjust campaigns, boosting engagement and improving the EdgeRank score of your posts.

  • Flat Fee for all publishing plans, pages, and groups you administer

Express is a priority lane for publishers who absolutely must push stories from their feed to Facebook in 5 minutes or less.

Post Limit Updates and the Premium Optimize Package

Last week we announced we’ll be offering two new Premium Features and new posting limits. We received a lot of feedback, including ideas on how we can continue to improve RSS Graffiti and support our ongoing efforts. We’re happy to have such a thoughtful and supportive community of customers and we’re making changes based on your input. Thanks!

Understanding that the needs of a breaking news organization differ from those of an individual blogger, we wanted to introduce a post frequency option that works for everyone. That’s why in May we’ll be launching a post package called Broadcast. With Broadcast, all customers will receive up to 300 posts per month to each Facebook target page for FREE. For our higher volume publishers, we’ll be offering up to 2000 posts per Facebook target page for a flat monthly fee of $5. For ANY user that wants to post more than 2000 posts to a single page in a month, please give us a shout and we will make exceptions to this limit on a case-by-case basis. Just like before, there will be a 30-day grace period so the limits won’t kick in immediately (posting will continue to be unlimited until June).

Our goal is to offer as much flexibility as possible while enhancing overall Facebook engagement for all of our users. That said, we’re also be offering a new premium feature called Optimize.  The Optimize package is designed with strategic content marketers and publishers in mind, and will help customers learn what content is most effective as well as when it’s most likely to be consumed. Optimize provides analytics for ALL your Facebook content, not just content posted via RSS Graffiti.  Moreover, the Optimize package includes an advanced scheduling tool which allows you to plan precisely when to distribute content. Optimize provides an easy way for all publishers to actively improve the performance of their content. We’re going to offer Optimize for $50 per month, and will come with analytics and advanced scheduling for ALL of your publishing plans.

In our next post, we’ll provide more details on Optimize as well as our other premium feature designed for Breaking and Urgent News publishers.

Please keep sending us comments and ideas and follow our blog, Twitter and Facebook posts throughout April as we reveal more details, including the premium feature benefits and pricing options. If you have questions about the coming changes, please visit our Community Support Forum. Someone from our team is standing by, happy to address any concerns you might have.

RSS Graffiti scheduled maintenance

RSS Graffiti is going down for scheduled maintenance Thursday, 21 June 2012 00:00:00 UTC (7PM Wednesday US Central Time). The maintenance will take several hours, during which time the dashboard will be unavailable and all publishing plans will be paused. Once the maintenance is complete, any items not posted by RSS Graffiti during the downtime will start publishing to Facebook. If you have any questions about what to expect, please drop us a line in our support forum.

Tomorrow’s Timeline Deadline

Procrastinators! Ready or not, Facebook is switching all pages to timeline tomorrow (March 30th). Since a few of you asked, we want to assure everyone that RSS Graffiti is compatible with timeline, so feel free to make the switch before the deadline. 

Keep in mind posts will be placed on the timeline according to when RSS Graffiti published them, not when they were originally written. If you’ve used the app to publish articles from the past, you may want to manually change the date of these posts in Facebook so they appear at the appropriate point on your timeline. Now get to it!

Regarding the outstanding permission-granting issue: If you are part of the small percentage of users who can’t grant publishing permissions to RSS Graffiti, please be patient while we work on a solution. We’ll make an announcement soon with an update on the status of the fix. -Seth

2.0 Migration Schedule

In February we announced RSS Graffiti 2.0 was going to be rolled out slowly in preparation for a global release. We are happy to report the initial beta period was a success, and so far we have received an overwhelmingly positive response from beta testers using the new version.

This week we will open up RSS Graffiti 2.0 to another batch of existing users, chosen based on how they use the application. At this stage the upgrade will be available on a purely opt-in basis. The purpose of this gradual roll-out is to ensure that everyone’s feeds continue to publish without interruption. Once we are confident these users have been upgraded successfully, a much larger batch of users will be migrated to 2.0. 

We will eventually require all remaining 1.9.6 users to upgrade. It will be worth the wait; RSS Graffiti 2.0 offers improvements that will expand the power and usability of the application. With this release you can expect an increase in speed and greater control over how & where your feeds are published.

Have questions? if you’re already using RSS Graffiti 2.0, we set up a new GetSatisfaction community support forum to help with any 2.0-specific issues you might encounter. Rest assured, we will continue to support users on 1.9.6 until the migration is complete. If you are using 1.9.6, you can always find help on our 1.9 forum.
