ContentStudio's latest feature, Social Composer - Mobile Preview is here! 🎈✨

Now, you can save time, and increase your productivity by creating Social Posts that look amazing on mobile and desktop. πŸ’»πŸ“±

Let me spill some statistics here!

Let's consider Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. How often do you use social on mobile vs. web?

Social media's accessibility through the mobile application and its mobile website plays a crucial part in its success and usability.

  • In January 2021, around 98 percent of active users around the world used some form of cell phone to access the social media network.

  • There was an estimated 4.08 billion active mobile social media users worldwide.

  • 78% or 2.97 billion users will access networks exclusively on a mobile phone.

Mind-blowing, right? 😲😱

This means you need to make sure that your Social Posts for Mobile are optimized!
