To post to your Twitter account directly from ReputationBuilder, you will need to authorize the account first. Because Twitter Authorization is at the user level, each user that wishes to post directly to Twitter will need to complete this step. You will need to be logged into the Twitter account you wish to connect to before starting the authorization process.

Image cropping using guides

We’ve adding more control over how your background images display by adding image cropping as an option when creating a new theme. The ability to crop allows you to zoom in and out on your image. Using guides, you can understand how the background image will be cropped for each social media site’s image size.

Once you click “Crop”, guides appear that represent image post sizes for Facebook/Twitter, Instagram, and Google. Move or resize these guides to ensure key elements are visible in the image background of your post on each social channel.

10 Themes Now Available

We’ve doubled the design themes you can create and save from 5 to 10 themes. Now you can use an even bigger library of custom themes for your posts. Themes are an incredible tool to save time and build your brand into Social Sharing with images, photos, colors, and more.
