Last week we added another video guide to the SocialSafe YouTube Channel, this time giving you a tour of the Journal, showing you how to filter what is displayed, and over what time period:
As you’ll see, we’ve tried to make life easier for you by including some preset date ranges that will allow you to quickly isolate your activities within commonly used time periods. The calendar also gives you complete flexibility over the date, allowing you to select your own start and end points, and therefore customise your own date ranges. You can also jump straight to any single day by clicking on it.
If you want to filter out certain networks, or specific accounts, you can also do this via the top bar. For example you might have a Twitter account that automatically posts many times a day which might overfill the Journal, making it harder to see your Facebook updates. Within the Journal you can simply exclude that Twitter account from the current view. Likewise you can choose to view just one account in isolation when viewing content in the Journal.
You’ll also notice that you can perform a search within your selected date range by selecting ‘Search [keyword or phrase] on this page’. If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can always click ‘Search [keyword or phrase] everywhere’, which will revert back to looking at the entire date range of your content. For more on searching social networks, click to see the specific video.
There are plenty of other ways to browse and view your content, but hopefully with the Journal we have created a view that everyone can customise to their own requirements, giving them greater control over how they use their content.
