How To Search For Content On Twitter & Facebook

1. Using the top menu bar navigate to 'Find Content'.   

2. Select 'Curate from social media' from the available options.

3. Type the name of the Twitter or Facebook account you want to share posts from into the search bar, or your search terms to bring up relevant Facebook Pages, Twitter Profiles, Pinterest Boards, recent Tweets and media. 

Scroll down to view all search results associated with your search terms. 

4. Select the profile you're interested in and scroll down to view all of the available posts below. 

How To Filter And Sort Content Search Results 

Filter and sort the content using the menu items above the search results. 

1. For Twitter, you can choose to re-arrange the content by 'Latest,' 'Most Liked,' and 'Most Retweeted.'

You can also choose to 'Exclude Retweets' or 'Exclude Replies' to further refine your search.

2. For Facebook, you can choose to re-arrange the content by 'Latest,' 'Most Liked, 'Most Shared,' or 'Most Commented.'

How To Re-Share A Post

1. Choose the post you'd like to re-share and click the 'Share' button.

2. You can either 'Share Full Post', 'Share Photo + Link', 'Share Link', or 'Share Photo'. For more information on what these options mean, head over to our article on What Is The Difference Between Share Photo, Share Link, Share Photo + Link & Share Full Post?

3. After selecting the portion of the content you'd like to share, finish editing in the Post Editor. 

Here you can choose a Category, select the profiles you'd like to share to, set your Evergreen settings, and finally add the content to your Queue!

How To Import Multiple Posts

1. To quickly import multiple posts into your Queue at once, toggle on 'Bulk'.

2. You will then be able to use the Bulk editor to select the Category you want for your posts, the Social Profiles you will be posting them to, as well as toggle Evergreen Recycling on or off for them. 

3. Once you've chosen the setting that should apply to the majority of the posts, you can scroll down and make any changes you want to individual posts. 

💡 If you are only interested in selecting a limited number of posts from the fetched content, you can toggle off 'Select all/none' and then scroll down to manually select and edit the content you want to share. 

4. Once you're done editing, click to add the selected posts to the bottom of the Queue đŸ’Ē 

How To Save Content Sources

If you want to come back to these sources in the future and save the time you would spend searching, you can save them under 'My Sources', in the left-hand column of the Find Content area. 

Common Questions

Why don't any Social Profiles load when I search for content?

If you've typed something into the Find Content search bar and nothing loads, please be aware that it might take up to 10 seconds to fetch the content if there are many Social Profiles associated with your search terms. 

After typing in your search words, be sure that you  do not hit enter or click outside of the search bar. Simply type your search term, wait for a few seconds and your results will populate!

Why can't I see my LinkedIn posts when I search for content? 

At this time LinkedIn's API doesn't allow SmarterQueue to search your profile for posts using the Find Content tool. You can, however, import your Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and Instagram posts in bulk and then schedule them to your LinkedIn profile. 

Why don't images show with link previews in my Find Content search results? 

This is a restriction with the Twitter API which doesn't return any link preview text/description/image for links. All SmarterQueue receives inside the Find Content tool is the link URL itself which explains why there are no images shown.

Are there any legal repercussions when re-sharing content?

We recommend that you always assume that the original content creator owns the rights to the content that you are reposting. 
Some social networks, such as Twitter, highlight this in their terms of service that enables users the right to retain what they post. 
In this case, it is always best to give credit to the content's original creator by tagging them. For example 'Photo by @username' may be sufficient enough.
We recommend customizing any content you curate in order to add your own flare. If you're in doubt, you may also want to contact the creator directly and ask their permission to repost their content. 
Why do the search results for some popular Twitter feeds stop after a certain date? 
If you've searched for a Twitter account inside of Find Content that is particularly active, you may see that the results populate only for the last few weeks, rather than all-time. This is due to a limitation on Twitter's end with their API that only allows SmarterQueue to fetch the latest 3,200 tweets including replies and retweets.
This means that if an account has replied and retweeted thousands of times in the last few weeks, then SmarterQueue may not be able to fetch other original tweets.
