📹 What Is "Find Content" And How Does It Work?

Changes to Facebook Groups Publishing

Facebook unexpectedly decided to remove Groups API access, preventing any third-party tools, including SmarterQueue, from interacting with your Facebook Groups. After April 22nd, 2024, SmarterQueue will no longer be able to publish directly to groups you manage. You can still schedule posts for these groups, but will receive email notifications for easy manual posting instead. You may also wish to consider transitioning to a Facebook Page for better engagement.

The "Find Content" feature is a great way to curate existing posts from your connected Social Profiles, as well as great content from external sources. 

Using "Find Content" will ensure that you quickly fill up your Queue and never run out of relevant content to share with your audience. 💪

What Is The "Find Content" Feature?

Coming up with fresh, relevant content for your social media presence can sometimes be difficult and time-consuming. It might even be the reason why you're not fully committing to social media, or finding it hard to set up your Posting Plan and overall schedule. 

The good news is that really good content is timeless. Posts that you've sent out in the past can find a new audience now and bring in much-needed engagement.

On top of this, great content from other sources that you follow and relate to can work for you as well. Finding relevant, existing content and sharing it with your audience can help promote both you and the sources that you follow. ✨

You can navigate to "Find Content" from the main: 

"Find Content" allows you to review past posts available on your Social Profile, as well as look over posts on Social Profiles you're interested in, look up content by entering a search term or URL, and import what you think works right into your Queue. 

How Does "Find Content" Work?

"Find Content" will give you a series of content-curating options that will help you Discover Content from external sources, or Share Your Content, already on your Social Profiles, or from your other, external, sources. 

Discover Content

Whether you're following great influencers on social media, keeping up to date with the best blogs in your field, or regularly checking the news, you can always come across great content that would be relevant to your audience.

The Share posts from other's blogs option will let you check your favorite blog's feeds and import the best entries, either one by one or in bulk, and send them directly to your Queue. 

You can even import great content from your favorite YouTube Channels or playlists, or from Google Alerts you've set up. 

The Curate from social media option will let you check any social media profiles and re-share posts from Facebook or re-share pins from Pinterest, increasing both your exposure and that of the people you follow. 

You can also use Find Content to quickly Discover free images that will help you create the best content for your followers, with amazing attached media

Note: Keep in mind Videos and GIFs cannot be pulled via Find Content. For these posts, the media will be published as a static image, and for some platforms with a link to the video. 

And if you're a Feedly user, you can Import Feedly bookmarks in a few quick steps, by uploading your OPML file. 

You can even save sources for later, should you want to easily revisit and look up content in the future. 

Share Your Content

And why shouldn't your own hard work have a chance to shine? 

Show everyone what you're passionate about and  Share your blog posts, to increase traffic. You can easily import your favorite past entries and set up an auto-importer to bring in every new article as it comes out, and share it with your social media. 

You can also bring back your best performing content - Re-share your best posts and give it a chance at a new audience, whether it's on Facebook or Pinterest.

And if you have a lot of Posts to share at once, you can easily bring them into SmarterQueue, just Bulk upload from a spreadsheet - you can use a CSV, Excel file, or Google sheet and have everything added to your Queue at once. 

"Find Content" also makes it easy to Browse your media library and check all the great media you've added and/or used in the past and re-use it. You can search for keywords and apply filters to look at all media, including queued and past posts.
