5 New Social Media Sites You’ll Love

There are so many social media sites to choose from. Which one will work best for you? Which medium do you choose for broadcast?  Pictures, tweets, blogs? It’s a tricky world on those social platforms.

Everyone knows the big networks, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube. Most people know how to use them and how to get the most out of them, but what about the smaller, lesser known social sites. Here are 5 new social media sites to explore to engage with your customers in a different way.

1. Storify

Storify allows you to collate content from a variety of sites, including Twitter, Facebook or Instagram based on your choice of keywords. You can then add your own narration and re-share it through your existing social networks. This allows you to gather information for one story in one place.

2. ArchetypeME

Through completing a short quiz, this site will help you discover your archetype – your ‘pattern of behaviour that explains who you are and how you engage with the world around you’. The site then gives you content based on your choices and allows you to connect with friends and view the things that are interesting to them. It combines both socialising and content discovery.

3. ListGeeks

If like me, you have a brain like a sieve – then this is perfect for you. ListGeek allows you to create your own list by adding content from websites, or from other people’s lists. You can then share your list with others (perfect for dropping hints about Christmas and birthday presents perhaps?).

4. RebelMouse

RebelMouse combines your stories/photos/videos you share online across all platforms and puts them in one place – your page. You can then encourage your followers to visit your RebelMouse page to find out more about you, and give them the bigger picture. Businesses can use this on their websites to offer a different type of dynamic content.

5. 43Things

43Things aims to help you achieved your goals. You set your goal and 43Things shows you how many other people are working towards it, and how many have achieved it. You can connect with others to share stories, encourage one another and monitor progress.

Why not give one of these a try and see how it affects your business on a more intimate level? Let us know what happens.
