Content Discovery Tools Part 2

A little supplemental audio for you:

Last week I featured Swayy as one of the Content Discovery Tools I use. Today I’d like to share several others tools I use to fill in the gaps. I use these sites and tool to discover great content to share, primarily with Buffer, but they are equally effective for finding great reads, new connections, post ideas and sharable content for any social sharing platform. Before we get started, I just want to mention that I an not necessarily using these tools the way they were intended, at least for the topic of content discovery. For this post, I’m focusing on finding great content to consume and share with our followers; I use Buffer but these tools will work with whatever sharing method you prefer.
