Time intervals and duplicate posts are at the top of this problem. smqueue's development team are working on new algorithms which when implemented, will enforce limits to prevent you from "over posting". In the interim, we implore our members to use the following Best Practices to Avoid Spamming.
Intervals Between Time Slots
When setting up your time slots, you should be aware of how close your time slots are and set them according to the social profile you are managing. These intervals are what is acceptable by each social media platform and keep you from "spamming" your streams.
For Twitter: minimum of 5 - 7 minutes apart.
For Facebook: minimum of 45 minutes apart.
For LinkedIn: there are no time restrictions placed on LinkedIn profiles. Rather, LinkedIn has a post limit of 25 posts per day. If you post more than 25 posts inside a 24 hour window, LinkedIn will site you for spamming.
Duplicate Posts - Time Windows
When managing posts in your queues, you should be aware of how many posts you have in relation to how many time slots you have assigned. Social media platforms place restrictions on posting the EXACT same post inside set windows. Use the following information to ensure best practices and avoid your posts from being marked as spam.
For Twitter: you cannot add the EXACT same post inside a 3 Day window. If you have 100 posts in your Recurring Queue, only assign 30 Time Slots. This will prevent your queue from cycling back inside the allowed time window.
For Facebook: you cannot add the EXACT same post inside a 7 Day window. If you have 100 posts in your Recurring Queue, only assign 15 Time Slots.
For LinkedIn: you cannot add the EXACT same post inside a 7 Day window. If you have 100 posts in your Recurring Queue, only assign 15 Time Slots.
Re: Scheduled Queue
smqueue does not place any limits on how many posts you can add to your Scheduled Queue. That said, you should still schedule posts with the above time windows in mind, and never schedule the exact same post inside the acceptable time windows.
Rules for Groups & Pages
For Facebook Groups: 2 to 3 posts a day max; spread over 24 hours.
For LinkedIn Company Pages: 2 to 3 posts a day max; spread over 24 hours.
TIP: Use the Scheduled Queue Posting Calendar to view all time slots and make adjustments so that you comply with the above guidelines.
