When posting a campaign from emma to facebook, the emma link is automatically posted.  The graphic is already linked to the online preview of the campaign.  I feel that this link is unnecessary.  Is there an option to remove this?

Hi Brandi! I’m checking in with our product owners about this possibility, since displaying or hiding the link isn’t an option built into the feature.

Hello again! I talked to our Social Team’s product owner, and he agrees that being able to remove the URL makes the post look cleaner.

We won't address this in Q1, but we would like to improve the posting experience at some point this year, and this could be a part of that.

Hello again! Our Social Team is refocusing its efforts to apply full force on the great autoresponder work our Automation Team is doing. Because of that, social projects are halted at the time-being, including this one, which we definitely won't get to this year or early next.

Once all the new automation is out in the wild, we may circle back.

Let me advocate strongly for circling back to this when you have the resources to do so.

The Social Media tool is much more valuable to me if the embedded  link directs the reader back to my own site. Especially as the post begins to spread virally. The extra link back to Emma's social landing page uses up extra characters of Twitter's 140 character limit, and seems confusing and counterintuitive to me as a user.

My 2-centavos worth ...
