How to Create a Post
Updated: Sep 28
It’s commonly agreed that content is a wonderful tool for building and engaging with your online community. However, content on public social media can become irrelevant, or overwhelming, for individuals who wish to receive only a specific stream. Here we dive into how to create a post on uHubs. Along with the use of Groups, Member Types and Tags, you can assign different posts to specific members to segment your hub’s content strategy effectively.
It may prove more efficient to funnel content to 1 Ugenie community, your community, rather than 10 different Facebook groups.

Post Title The title cannot exceed 50 characters. This means it will appear neat on the feed. Video Link Enter a YouTube or Vimeo link. YouTube links will be shareable by users. Vimeo links are shareable according to the permissions you set on the original video upload. To share a private Vimeo video, you must link your Vimeo account in Hub Settings. Video Upload Videos cannot exceed 300mb. We recommend using the Vimeo integration so that your videos remain on your Vimeo account if you choose to leave Ugenie.
Images Upload an image to make your announcement visually appealing. Message Ensure your announcement copy is relevant, engaging and contains a call-to-action. Notify All Users Choose to target the announcement to all members. Tags Choose to assign the announcement to specific tags you have created. Alternatively, create custom tags for this announcement only. Individual Access Choose to target the announcement to individual members.
Member Types Choose to target the announcement to specific member types you have created. Groups Choose to target the announcement to specific groups you have created. Time Zone Choose a time zone for your announcement. Visible From Here our scheduling tool helps you manage and distribute many content pieces. Choose to schedule your announcement on a particular date and at a particular time. Visible Until Optionally choose to set an expiry date for your announcement. Ignore the field if you want your announcement to be visible forever.
‘Announcement Posted’ will appear at the top of your screen as confirmation.
The new announcement has officially been posted and is available for members to view on their feed.
And there you have it! That’s how to create a post on uHubs!
