SocialBee vs MeetEdgar

How is SocialBee different from MeetEdgar?


See how SocialBee can save you time over MeetEdgar 💪

While both SocialBee and MeetEdgar are tools for scheduling your content for your Social Media platforms, there are quite a few differences.

We believe SocialBee can help you save a few hours each week when planning your content and help you have a better grip on your audience.

Evergreen Posting – Content Reposting/Recycling

Both SocialBee and MeetEdgar allow you to recycle your content. Once your queue runs dry, your content will be recycled and posted again.

SocialBee allows you to do this on more platforms (Instagram, Pinterest and Google My Business, through our Buffer and Hootsuite integrations) and with more flexibility than MeetEdgar.

This is perfect for content that is not time sensitive. And speaking of categories:

Create your own Schedule or use Best Practices

You’ll have different needs for different platforms. Both MeetEdgar and SocialBee allow you to create your own schedule to suit your needs.

However, if you’re unsure of when you should post, SocialBee also gives you the option to generate a schedule according to the latest best practices for each platform. This way, you don’t have to stress that you won’t pick the best times to post.  

And speaking of content that gets posted:

Powerful RSS and Pocket Configuration

Both MeetEdgar and SocialBee allow you to import RSS feeds or CSV Files to fill up your queue faster.

With SocialBee you can also Import links or, use your Pocket account to directly share different tags to multiple content categories. Talk about a time-saver!

Extra – did I tell you about our very own Social Media Team?

Beside our powerful Social Media Management Platform, we have a Team of Social Media Specialists – or Social Media Bees, as we like to call them – that provide a suite of Concierge Services which will help you with Social Media Posting.

So Should I use MeetEdgar or SocialBee?

We’d love it if you used SocialBee, but we’ll help you make the decision yourself:

MeetEdgar might be right for you if

  • You only want to use it for scheduling your content.
  • You’re happy with the current feature set (which has stayed the same almost since their launch)

SocialBee might be right for you if

  • You want to automate your posts more and save time to deal with the really important stuff
  • You want to be able to categorize and recycle your content

Having the content categories, and being able to recycle content makes it possible to post more often, even if you don’t have a VA or you’re not working on it full time.
