By letting you easily discover and share content on your favorite topics, Scoop.it will help you save time maintaining your social media presence. Simply connect your social profiles and share your curated content to all your social profiles in one click as you publish it.
1. Connect your social profiles to Scoop.it
To get started, make sure to first connect your social media accounts to Scoop.it. To do so, go to your Settings and then Sharing Options.
Here, you’ll be able to connect two of the available social networks with Scoop.it Free, and additional profiles with Scoop.it Pro and Business.
2. Publish once, share everywhere.
Once you’ve connected your accounts, you will have the option to share all of your Scoop.it posts to your social media channels by checking the associated box in the publishing window.
By default, your newly connected social accounts will be checked and Scoop.it will remember which ones you had checked last time you published on that topic. Of course, you are always free to check/uncheck the sharing destinations for any scoop you publish. By hitting publish from the Scoop.it publishing window, your content will be shared on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or any destination you have chosen to share to.
The above publishing window also lets you customize the content of your tweet, Facebook, LinkedIn or Google+ update so you can taylor the message to your audience on your various properties.
3. Drive your social audience to your content hub or use DirectLink to send them directly to the original content
By default, the link included in your social post will direct your audience to your own content hub on Scoop.it: each scoop you publish on your Scoop.it topic has its own permalink which enables your readers to (1) discover your added insights to the original post (and make them want to read it with your own context in mind) (2) discover related content from your topic page.
But the Scoop.it publishing window also offers the "Direct Link" option that enables you to send your social media audience directly to the original content if you wish to do so. To do this, simply toggle the DirectLink button in the Share section of the publishing window on a post by post basis (the system will remember your last choice and use it by default).
4. Re-share previously published content
Forgot to share when publishing? You can go back to your scoop and share it at a later stage by using the sharing arrow icon:
You will then have exactly the same options as from the publishing window:
By going to your Scoop.it suggestions and followed topics regularly, you will find relevant content to engage your social media audience in no time.
