2019-12-27 12:22

Content Curation is one of the key strategies used in social media marketing. Sharing third-party content will add more value and variations to your own social media content. Presenting relevant content from other sources will also help establish your social media accounts as a valuable resource for your particular field of expertise.

You can automatically post and schedule curated content with Blog2Social, in addition to automating the social media marketing of your own blog posts and WordPress websites. This way, you can organize your complete social media scheduling right from your WordPress dashboard.

You can curate third-party content on these networks 

  • Twitter (1 profile)
  • Facebook (profiles & pages)
  • Instagram
  • Pinterest
  • Imgur
  • Flickr
  • LinkedIn
  • XING (profiles & pages)
  • VKontakte (profiles & pages)
  • Diigo
  • Reddit

Please note:

  • Twitter: Due to the new guidelines and cross-posting terms of Twitter, users are no longer allowed to post identical or substantially similar content to multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account. The "Customize & Schedule" feature allows you to publish your posts on several Twitter accounts at the same time by varying the tweets (Kommentartexte, Bilder, Hashtags oder Handles).
  • Instagram and Pinterest: Curated content from image networks can be published and planned with the Content Curation feature, if an image is contained in the curated content.
  • Third-party content that do not contain Open Graph parameters can be shared with the Content Curation feature. You can edit your image by clicking on "Customize & Schedule" and then changing the post format to Image Post.
