Using Social Media for Content Creation

If you’ve been looking for content on social media, you’re not alone. There are several ways to speed up your searches if finding content or inspiration for blog posts is part of your job. Here’s how.

Saved Searches on Twitter

Saving searches on Twitter is my favorite way to look for content to retweet or post in other places. It’s fast and easy. Just do a regular search on Twitter and then save that search. You can search for a hashtag, single word, or phrase. For example, I often search for startups, so that’s one of mine. For more details, see this article: How to Use Twitter Saved Searches.

Guided Search on Pinterest

If you don’t know where to start searching on Pinterest, start with the general topic. Recipes, DIY, and inspiration are all popular topics on Pinterest. And you may not know exactly what you’re searching for until you see it. Follow the suggestions. Here’s an article about Guided Search on Pinterest.

Google Search Suggestions

When you do a search on Google, at the bottom of the first page results you’ll see a list of related searches. This can be very handy to search in a slightly different way if the original search doesn’t turn up what you want.

Google Scholar

If you need a scholarly article or study, go to Google Scholar. You’ll look like a superhero if you summarize the study for your audience, too. You can see case studies, citations, and patents.

Lists on Twitter

Twitter lists are a fabulous way to search. My favorite list isĀ Science, Museums. And did you know you can subscribe to other’s lists? So if you see one you like, you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.

Use That Search to Create a Blog Post

You’ll probably get some ideas for blog posts as you search for things your audience would like. You can comment on someone else’s post, too, and incorporate it into your own post.
