Media Library on Zoho Social

Social Library

Social Library is a file management space that helps you add and manage images, GIFs, and videos to use for your  social media posts. With the Social Library, you can upload pictures, videos, and GIFs from your Desktop or Cloud and maintain a repository of frequently used or key media files to use across your brand's social channels..
 
Some of the significant benefits of managing the Social Library are,
1. The time required to upload any media to your posts from the Social Library is comparatively swifter and more efficient  as it is already pre-uploaded and can work from any device you are scheduling/publishing from.
2. More sources to choose media filed from in case you are uploading content from the Cloud Picker.
