With regards to social media, Mention's features offers dedicated management tools as well as monitoring on performance and brand identity. Connecting your social media accounts to Mention will allow you to enhance your social engagement by offering the ability to interact, analyze, and program content through one consolidated platform!

Below, we will go over what you can do with your social media connections in the Mention platform. Here is the agenda:

Engage with Mentions in the Feed

Through the Mention Feed, you will have the ability to interact with social media mentions from Facebook and YouTube


  • Mention will fetch the original posts from public business pages. You will be able to like the post or comment on it.

  • Mention will display comments from some posts (if they are available). You will be able to like the comments, reply to comments, or even leave your own comment!


  • If you receive a mention from YouTube, you can view the video directly from the Feed. You will not be able to like or comment on the video at this time.


Please note: When you open a mention from Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, or Pinterest, Mention will show you a preview of the mention in your Feed. Mention does not offer the ability to engage with the mention. If you click on content from the preview, it will open the mention in a new tab. If you're logged in to your social accounts from your web browser, you can directly engage with the posts on the new tab.

Build Your Content Calendar with Scheduled Posts

Publish is Mention's holistic approach towards content management. Through this feature, you will be able to program content for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn!

The Mention Reports feature allows you to create social analytical reports for your owned social media channels. Through a social account connection, you will be able to analyze the performance of your accounts for Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.

These reports are a great way to gauge the performance of social posts or online campaigns over a period of time. With a social account connection, Mention will have access to fetch metrics such as follower evolution, top posts, and more!
