I don’t know about you but I sometimes find it hard to keep up with sharing on social media.
When I visit blogs and leave a comment, I usually share their content and I use Buffer to make sure it’s spread out over a few days.
But when my Buffer’s full, then what? The next place I visit is Triberr.
There’s always some good content there which I can also drip feed into my social media streams.
Recently though, I’ve been using a couple of other services for content curation.
They may not be ones that you’ve heard of so I thought I’d let you in on them.
Swayy gives me a really easy way to find lots of great content, from up to five categories of my choice.
With the click of a button I can share it with my followers and it even suggests relevant hashtags to add and people to mention.
The clever thing about Swayy is that it looks at the content all of your followers are sharing and engaging with.
It then recommends content that is relevant based on this information.
Swayy also labels all the content it’s found for you as either “Engaging Content” or “Relevant For Your Audience” so you know what value your audience will get from it.
In addition, Swayy provides analytical data about your posts, including the amount of “Favourites”, “Replies”, “Retweets” and “Clicks”.
It also gives you:
- an overall breakdown of your links shared through Swayy;
- what your best content sources are;
- top content types;
- and what your trending keywords are.
Currently Swayy is in beta but you can request an invite now. There’s various account options.
I’m using the free account which has some restrictions over the paid accounts.
The main ones are that you can only connect 2 social networks and the scheduling is restricted to immediately or in one or two hours.
There is also no access to more advanced Facebook and Twitter analytics or Bit.ly integration.
For a free account though, it’s pretty darn awesome!
EverPost is another way to find really great content to share and is in some ways very similar to Swayy.
You can define up to five content filters and if the pre-defined ones aren’t to your liking, no problem, EverPost will set up a custom filter for the subjects of your choice.
You can share content on Twitter and Facebook, although the availability to share to LinkedIn and Google+ is coming soon.
Clicking on the share buttons allows you to post the content to your social media streams now, on auto-schedule or at a set time and date.
EverPost prompts you to write your own introductory title when you share content, or you can click on the post title and that will automatically be populated.
You can also add your own Tweets with EverPost by clicking on the New Post button. These can also be added to the auto-schedule or sent out at a specific date and time if required.
There are a couple of EverPost’s features which I’m finding intriguing – Gamification and Quotes. You may find them useful; you may not.
Gamification allows you to share interactive posts which asks your followers to “fill in the blank”.
Quotes, as you might have guessed, allows you to share quotes from famous people, without having to scour the internet for them.
And Finally… Over To You
So, what do you think of Swayy and EverPost? Would you find them useful? Do you use another content curation service already?
