So you want to give your Pinterest profile some jazz? Following other people and adding their top content to your own board won’t suffice. The community is more likely to appreciate your contributions if you provide it with unique content from time to time. Content curation is an art. Not everyone is great at it. In order to find the best content and share it before others, you will have to keep an eye on top content sites. Here are 5 places you can monitor to find new material for Pinterest:
All Top: needs no introduction. It has listed a ton of websites under various categories. Not every piece of content listed there will be suitable for Pinterest. But this is a good place to start your search.
Reddit: Reddit has a ton of members and is a great source of content, depending on the topics you are interested in following. The community vets new entries, so you will know which ones the community digs.
Twitter: I personally use this with Google Reader to keep track of some of the best stories submitted to Twitter on a daily basis. The key here is to find people worth following in this community. Twitter lists are your best friends here. All top influencers on Twitter have their own set of influencers. Twitter is truly a goldmine of content.
Google+: new stories break quite fast on sites such as Twitter and Google+. Having the right people circled would allow you to track new stories on topics that interest you. With over 100M users on Google+, you will never run out of new content to share on other social networks.
Top image sites: sites such as Piccsy, Imgur, and Fancy have all kinds of photos and graphics you can share on Pinterest. You do want to make sure you give proper credit to content creators if you decide to use these sites.
There are many other sites you may use to find content for Pinterest. Content curation is not something you can master overnight. But you will get there if you do it long enough.
