The feature is still in beta, with much room for improvement. For example, the tool doesn't customize content ideas based on different social platforms. Also, the tool doesn't offer ideas in bulk, which can slow down the idea generation process. This feature is only helpful if you're a beginner and want to set up your foundation on social channels.
