Add a Social Account to Hire Shorts

Adding your social accounts to Hire Shorts is the first step in saving time on social media. Instead of signing in to each social network separately, you can use Hire Shorts to manage activity for all your connected accounts in one place. Learn which social account types you can manage with Hire Shorts in this article.

Generally, everyone has one social profile per account when they sign up with a social network, like Twitter or Instagram. Facebook and LinkedIn are a bit different. With those social networks, you could have access to multiple account types, including your personal profile, as well as Pages or groups. Pages and groups are also considered account types in Hire Shorts.

Supported social networks and account types

Hire Shorts supports the following account types and counts each one toward your account limit:

NetworkSupported account type
 LinkedIn– LinkedIn Profiles
TikTok– TikTok Profiles
Facebook– Facebook Company Pages

– Following several changes by Facebook in 2018 to protect user privacy, publishing is not supported for Facebook personal profiles.
 Instagram– Business Accounts
WhatsApp– Send your videos directly to candidates through WhatsApp
Email– Send your videos directly to candidates through email
 Direct– Copy your video link and add to whatever sites you want


  • LinkedIn groups and Facebook gray accounts are not supported. Gray accounts are an old type of account used to manage a Facebook Page without a personal Facebook account.
  • Hire Shorts does not currently support any integrations for Snapchat, MeWe, Nextdoor, or XING.
