Need to post content to multiple social networks at the same hour? A new chatbot called Yalawants tohelp. The bot, live now on Slack with Facebook Messenger support coming soon , not only does the work of posting for you, its also intelligent enough to know when to post. That is, Yalauses algorithm and machine learning to determine the best is high time to post in order to increase your exposure and receive better involvement on the items youre sharing.

The idea for the bot comes from Gary Levitt, who previously sold his email marketing startup Mad Mimi to GoDaddy back in 2014. Afterwards, he attempted to enter the e-commerce space withan online storefront servicePinecone, but says he had trouble getting it off the ground. That led to the fulcrum to Yala instead something that addressed a number of problems Levitt faced himself while building Pinecone.

I was dissatisfied with Buffer, and its less impressive challengers, because multi-channel posting took hour, explains Levitt, especially when it came to scheduling across many channels, editing, preferring periods and composing, he says.

Buffer, by way of background, is a social media scheduling service, which also offers tools that help you determine the best time to publish.

However, with Yala, the purpose is to bring a similar sort of intelligence a little bit closer to home, says Levitt meaning, Slack.
