AutoTweet and Joocial 8 are our renewed platform to enhance your social media management as never before! The biggest social hub for Joomla, leading to new heights.
To follow this new road, we took the decision to release periodic beta releases for version 8, add new features, and finally replace the venerable version 7.
This development strategy allow us to innovate and prepare a new platform for a new technology iteration of new powerful features.
To sum up, this is the recipe that has guided our development:
On top of this fantastic roadmap, we have packed on this new build the sum of matured social plugins from the traditional branch. Together, AutoTweet and Joocial version 8 deliver 60+ social plugins, including the latest plugins for CMGroupBuying, JV-LinkDirectory, Matukio and phpBB/ p8pbb.
As usual, you can update your Joomla 3 site, simply installing the new version on top of your current version or via Live Update. To take advantage of the new Joocial Composer App, please, check the following documentation chapter: Composer App - How to enable the mobile App access

We have just released AutoTweetNG and Joocial 7.9.6 stable and 8.0.7 RC. In this version, AutoTweetNG and Joocial have peaked to include 63 social plugins, more integrated and powerful Joomla! extensions than ever. The new added extensions are:
This particular integration for AutoTweetNG and Joocial goes beyond our traditional social plugin. phpBB is the software that powers most web forums and it is integrated with Joomla! via AlterBrain's p8pbb bridge.
phpBB is a free flat-forum bulletin board software solution that can be used to stay in touch with a group of people or can power your entire website. On Joomla! CMS, AlterBrains' p8pBB bridge is a complete bi-directional integration of phpBB forum. Forum is displayed inside Joomla! template as usual component. And now, AutoTweet PRO and Joocial are integrated to automate and publish phpBB Topics and Posts to Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more.
The new "AutotweetP8pbb bridge for phpBB forum" plugin is already available in the latest AutoTweetNG PRO and Joocial 7.9.5 or 8.0.6 Beta.
Mobile Apps for Joomla! are coming. At this time, we are glad to introduce Joocial Composer App.
