Curating great Facebook content is one of the keys to growing your Facebook community. Finding that content can be time consuming and frustrating. Using a great curation tool can help you fine tune your Facebook strategy and build a following.
Today, I’m talking about some of my favorite tools to help you rock your next Facebook post. Check them out and learn how they can help you create amazing content.
5 Free Tools To Help Curate Great Facebook Content
- Post Planner– I’ve written before about my great love for Post Planner. It is an inexpensive and quick way for you to find the best viral content on the Internet. Bonus points for the option to add in other Facebook pages to see what’s working for them. Post Planner also provides you with a variety of questions and ways to get your community more involved on your page.
- Feedly– Feedly has a paid and free plan but you can add in any blogs and keep up with the latest. When you upgrade to the paid plan, you have the option for more automations such as posting to Buffer and Hootsuite.
- Pocket– Pocket is very similar to Feedly but it’s built under the idea of putting things to read later in your “Pocket”. It also integrates with schedulers like Buffer and Hootsuite. What I like about it is that it shows you what’s trending on Pocket. With a paid plan, you have more options to save your content and organize it for later.
- BuzzSumo– BuzzSumo is the king of content curation but it comes with a hefty pricetag. Luckily, you can sneak in a few free searches daily by visiting their main page. I like BuzzSumo because you can filter most shares by platform.
- Scoop It– Scoop It is a really unique platform- it is similar to Pinterest but more based on finding people with similar interests. I actually found Scoop It after someone scooped one of my articles and I got several referrals from it. I would use Scoop It to find unique, outside of the box content you won’t find anywhere else.
I can’t stress enough how important it is for you to pay attention to your Facebook insights. Tools are amazing but the real curation comes when you deliver content to your community. If you aren’t familiar with Insights yet, check out my post here.
By using your Insights, you can see what types of content your audience prefers (images vs. videos), when they are online and get valuable demographic information. You can also watch competitor’s pages to see what’s working for them and what isn’t.
Wrapping It Up
