With Marketing Cloud, no mention on social media is wasted.

Marketing Cloud has strategic partnerships with all the major social networks - Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Pinterest, and Google+. Being a Facebook Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer, member of Facebook Strategic Partner Program, member of Twitter’s Ads API program, partner of LinkedIn Sponsored Updates and partner of Pinterest’s MarTech Developer Alpha, Marketing Cloud gets access to data to better understand the brands’ effectiveness on social network, and manage and track audiences at scale.


This component is for use of administrators and Super users. It allows to add and manage social accounts (Social Accounts), create and manage macros to apply a variety of custom actions to multiple posts at the same time (Engagement macros), add and manage other user accounts (Users), add keywords and filters (Topic Profiles), define a set of sources that you would like your topic profile to look at such as Twitter or Facebook (Source Groups) and manage settings (Organization Settings).


These allow content collaboration amongst the team members. From a workspace, you have access to Performance tab, where basic reports can be published and downloaded.

The platform allows for organizing teams by region, brand or business function using Workspaces. Using workspaces, associated assets such as Social Accounts and Topic Profiles can also be organized.


This is the default tab when a workspace is opened.

The Publish section shows all previously published and scheduled posts (from all workplace’s social networks) on a calendar view (CALENDAR tab). The view can be customized by the marketers and is used to create and design full preview content with full preview.

Various tasks that can be accomplished using the Publish Calendar or the menu items in this view are:

  • Create a post for Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram (CREATE tab)
  • Link social accounts

Broad layout of the Engage tab is designed as:

  • Tab (one or more)
    • Columns (one or more)
    • Social Accounts (one or more)

Engage allows for filtering and sorting of social accounts and content with matching Topic Profiles. The columns are updated in real time.
