Create a post for your YouTube

With SocialBee you can share both regular videos and Shorts
Creating a post for YouTube is not too different from creating a post for other social profiles

Additionally, for YouTube you need:

  • To add the title of the video (max. 100 characters)
  • Add your video's description (max. 5000 characters)
  • Select the privacy of your video (public, unlisted, or private)

Click on the interactive screen below to see the steps, or scroll down to the written instructions.


Add a post in SocialBee using the Post Editor.


Select your Youtube profile, and then click on Proceed for customizing the post (this enables you to reveal platform-specific features you wouldn't see otherwise).


Create your post: Add the video's title, description, select the privacy of the video (public, private, or unlited), and finally your video.


Preview your post using the preview found on the right side of your screen.

Save your post.

⚠️  In case you would like to select multiple accounts, add your caption and video BEFORE selecting the profiles.

How do I choose between regular videos or Shorts?

SocialBee will automatically make this distinction for you based on:

Aspect Ratio Length The video will be shared as
1:1 or 9:16 under 60 seconds YouTube Short
between 16:9 and 1:1 any length YouTube normal video
between 1:1 and 9:16 any length YouTube normal video
