I've used this for some time and love the platform. It's simple to use and has been expanded to cover all the main social channels we manage for clients.

Pros:

Great system and perfect for sharing with clients before publishing content on social channels.

Cons:

None so far.

One year? How long has this product been available for?

If you are one of the 65 million people with a Facebook page for your business or you are managing some of them, Planable is a must-know online tool for managing your social media channels and keep in touch with the client as well.

Even though for many businesses, managing a social media page is like a daunting task and they hire an agency, most of the times the feedback is still needed: to make sure that their identity is there or just to keep an eye on the timeline. Planable managed to merge the perfect UI/UX with the content management and the client feedback in a very easy to use manner and the whole process is way more efficient and fast.

Pros:

The best way to keep in touch with your client and to organise your content!

You need to know it if you're a social media manager/agency!

Cons:

No cons for now.

I like two features: inviting teammates to approve posts and suggest edits, saving posts to public Facebook and Twitter pages that I do not own, so that these can be chosen to be published or not by the page's owner on their Planable account.

Pros:

Love their generous free-tier. Too good to be true.

Cons:

Bad UI and needs to be improved. No one wants a MarvelApp for social publishing. I need a Buffer-like UI here. No keyboard shortcuts.

I was given access to and tested Planable for a few days. I enjoyed it a lot, and it's a pity that such a great tool wasn't available back in the days when I worked in marketing. If I were, I would definitely use it.

Pros:

You can visualize how your posts will look directly on the targeted platform, and make the necessary adjustments.

Cons:

It's not as widely known and used. It deserves more.

Pros:

Easy to use and at a good price

Cons:

The product needs more features

Has helped remove the 'last minute opinionists' that really slow approving and delivering content on a fast and regular basis!

Pros:

No learning curve, easy collaboration on a very fragmented process

Cons:

Works for what I need now

Natural tool for collaborating on social media campaigns, either with a larger team or to keep your customers in the loop (updates & approvals).

Pros:

Nice and clean UX for iterative collaborative editing with realistic previews.

Cons:

Wishlist: Ads support, data-driven approval of content variations, integration with other campaign management tools (maybe as add-on).

Hey, Alex! I'd really appreciate knowing what integrations you'd love to see?

It is great to finally have a command center for all your social media posts and to be able to add comments exactly like on Google Docs

Pros:

it is flexible and really intuitive as it looks like exactly like on social media platform

Cons:

spread the word more about you

We also use MeetEdgar due to its recycling of foundation posts. If Planable could implement it would be amazing.

Pros:

Clean, easy, and clients love it.

Cons:

Recycling of posts.

Hey, Dan! We plan to integrate Instagram publishing in the feature with a mobile app. I'm really sorry it's not available at the moment, but we plan to have it soon in Planable!

I have always been amazed that Hootsuite has survived despite being such a miserable, useless experience. Am so glad someone is coming along to give them a run for their money! I've been wanting Planable for a few years now - am glad someone is finally doing it!

Pros:

So much better than everything else out there

Cons:

Wish it had more channels, but am sure they'll add

Great platform that finally makes it easy to collaborate on social media. Ideal for social media agencies and freelancers!

Pros:

Incredibly intuitive and easy to use. Beautiful, clean interface; Super friendly team; fast iteration of software - these guys are fast!

Cons:

Missing features: analytics; a calendar giving an overview of all posts across channels;

Sometimes simple is better! I just signed up and connected all my accounts for one client and am up and running in 3 minutes. This is the perfect timing since I am onboarding a Social Media intern in the new year!

Pros:

Simple

Does Everything I need

Cons:

None
