When you are curating posts on the Content Calendar, you have the ability to modify posts with unique multimedia such as photos, videos, and GIFs. You also have the option to modify your text by tagging other pages or attaching links. Overall, these attachments are a great way to boost the engagements and viewership of your social media content.

Before scheduling posts with multimedia or modified text, you will want to make sure that you are uploading media to Publish with the correct configurations in mind. In this article, we will teach you about the supported attachments for Publish and the limitations for the following platforms:

❗The limitations that you see for multimedia such as photos or videos are the same limitations you will encounter for the respective social media platforms. Mention cannot bypass limitations set by sites like Facebook or Twitter!

πŸ’‘Mention Tip: if you are not ready to attach multimedia content to your posts, you can upload it to the Content Library and save it for later! The Content Library will allow you to store text, photos, videos, or GIFs within Publish. You can transfer it to a post whenever you are ready to use it.
