Open Source Social Media Management

In this article, I will provide you with information about a social media management app. The idea for creating this app originated from my experience of opening multiple social media accounts. Unfortunately, they remained inactive because managing them all simultaneously was challenging. To solve this problem, an idea struck me: I can generate content and then share it across all my social media accounts. However, I soon realized that each social media platform has different requirements, such as Twitter’s character limit. That’s when the idea for such an application emerged, and I began researching.

While similar applications were already available on the internet, most of them were paid. However, I noticed that there was no free and open-source social media management application that I could run on my own server, so I decided to take action to address this issue.

My goal is to develop a high-quality product and make it available to everyone for free as open source software. Of course, I have other motivations, such as enhancing my own experience and creating an application I can use as a reference.

If you also struggle with managing multiple social media platforms, setting alarms to remind you to post on time, dealing with the complexities of formatting each post according to different requirements, and want to handle interactions with your audience on multiple platforms.
