Never Run Out of Social Media Content Again
Do you ever run out of engaging content to share on social media? People like and share posts that contain interesting information. Investing a little time and effort in finding captivating subjects will bring results and build your social proof.
Where do you go to find an endless supply of topics and content to post on social media?
To the Rescue
Reddit has several million daily users. Topics range from the silly to the professional. At first glance, it reminded me of Craigslist. A little unorganized and without and aesthetic appeal. Dig a little deeper and you’ll find tabs at the top of the page; Hot, New, Rising, Controversial, etc. You can click on any one of those tabs or type in a topic in the search bar. Each topic also shows how popular it is via point system.
Example: I typed Chicago into the search bar and requested links from the past 24 hours. The sub-reddit list containing topics like “Top 15 Essential Barbecue Restaurants in Chicago”, “Color Photos of Chicago Trains and Railways in the 1940s” and “Stairs at the Rookery, Chicago”.
Feedly is a great research tool. Type your topic into the search bar, click on the appropriate topic in the dropdown menu and then click on any post in the list. This will bring up a whole list of articles, videos and other media for the topic you choose.
Example: I typed Chicago Real Estate into the search bar and clicked on keyword alerts. At that point, I had the opportunity to refine my search further or just click on one of the topics in the list. From there, a pop-up provided a whole list of related articles.
Alltop curates the latest headlines into categories by pulling articles from top-rated and most followed websites and blogs. The tabs are organized into topics, featured, recently viewed and others. HolyKaw is a fun place to find a varying degree of engaging topics with photos.
Example: Using “real estate” as my search topic, I was taken to a page with several articles from the WSJ, NYT and other reputable companies.
There are lots of websites to gather information about a particular subject to share on social media. These three sites will help get you started.
