One great way to promote the content you find in Outbrain Select is to share it in your social channels. You can connect your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts directly to your Select account, and you can easily share your content out to other social channels such as Google Plus.
Sharing to social channels connected to Select
When viewing the Post screen for an article, you will see all of your social connections in the "Share" section on the right hand side of the screen. When you share an article, the link that is shared will take people back to your website to view that syndicated content rather than taking them to someone else's website. You can enter an optional comment to be shared with the link, allowing you to provide your thoughts on the article. Simply select the checkbox beside the social channel(s) to which you want to share and then click the "Post" button. Outbrain Select automatically adds a link to the article on your site to the tweet, Facebook wall post, and LinkedIn update.
Note that while you can re-share an article to the same social channel from within the Outbrain Select portal, if you want to remove a social posting you will have to go directly to your account (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) to remove your post there.
Currently Outbrain Select supports direct posting to the following social destinations:
- Facebook personal profile
- Facebook pages
- LinkedIn personal profile
Sharing to other social channels
or directly into the website for the social media channel
You've just shared an article that you posted through Outbrain Select using the tool of your choice. Just make sure to use that permanent link so that Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social destinations see the correct article preview.
