Shorten and Track Your Social Media URLs (Links)


Why should I shorten links?

When asking your social media audience to take action after seeing your content, it's best to include a visually-optimized link they can access. 

In most cases, when you shorten your links, you can also add UTM parameters that let you know how many people clicked on your links, and more insightful data.

How can I optimize my links in SocialBee?

🚨 Important: Setting up a URL Shortener will only affect links that you add from that moment on.

You can add UTM parameters and shorten links as follows:


On a Content Category level, so to all the posts in that Category. 


To the Whole Workspace, so for all the Content Categories.

You can add UTM parameters and shorten links with:

SocialBee's own shortener & UTM parameters.
