To publish content to Facebook or other social media platforms, you must first configure one or more "Social Media locations" within the GV STRATUS system. Each location is linked to an account, allowing more than one account to be configured for each platform if you have different accounts for each program or production team using GV STRATUS. Please see the following video shows how locations are configured:
Once you have configured your social media accounts and locations, you need to define Rules which will actually perform the Social Media publishing process. Rules are automated business processes that a system administrator can create in the system to accomplish a wide range of tasks, especially more complex processes which need to be standardised and repeated frequently.
Rules are triggered by metadata changes or user actions (creating an asset in a certain Bin, or just manually asking the system to start a rule). Please see the following video for some examples of how these rules can be configured:
As a user, you can easily publish content to Facebook (or other social networks, if configured) simply by meeting a criteria setup in a Social Media Publishing rule. This could be a "check box" that you set against one or more assets, or even based upon the presence of an asset in a media location (Bin) in the system as the result of editing a program or clip. Please see the following video:
Administrators can create Social Media Count rules within the GV STRATUS Rules engine to check how many Likes, Shares and Views assets have on the social networks they are publishing to. These counts are updated regularly and available to users within the GV STRATUS application as metadata within the assets, and presented as charts within a new Social Media Dashboard in the STRATUS Client. Please see the following video:
