Don’t let your old content get stale, keep it fresh! Similar to Auto-Poster, Social Snap can automatically share old posts and content you want to boost! You can pick what content you want to be revived. It’s a great way to leverage all of your existing content and reach new visitors.
Boost Old Posts Addon installation method is described in our How to Install Social Snap Addons tutorial.

These settings allow you to set general rules and default settings for all shareable content. Default settings can be overruled per entry, such as post content, hashtags, additional text before and after.
For every selected post type in General Settings, additional set of options should appear in the Social Snap Options Metabox when you’re editing the page. If the fields remain unaltered, the post will use default settings set in Social Snap » Settings » Boost Old Posts.
Gutenberg users can find the settings under Extended Settings » Social Snap Boost Old Posts.
