Your fans expectations are getting higher & higher.

And the quality of content your competitors are sharing is getting better & better

So how do you stay ahead of the competition & ensure you're sharing amazing, relevant content?

Simple -- find awesome content sources!

In this post I'll show you 7 killer places to find awesome content for your page.

7 Surprising Places to Find Awesome Posts for Facebook

Some of these may surprise you.

1. Tumblr

Amazingly, Tumblr is still underutilized.

But there is a TON of content on Tumblr & businesses don't use the platform enough.

Tumblr's search tool helps me find content using hashtags. I can arrange results based on:

  • Most Popular
  • Most Recent
  • Web Results

Or I can sort by:

  • Text
  • Photos
  • Quotes
  • Links
  • Chat
  • Audio
  • Video

Here I searched for fitness tips & found a bunch of content for my page (don't forget to cite your source in the post):


2. Post Planner

Post Planner is so much more than just a social-media scheduling tool.

Post Planner also offers:

  • Trending content
  • Pre-written status ideas
  • Viral photos

The Viral Photos are my favorite!

I can easily find the most shared & most engaged with photos from any Facebook page or profile.


Post Planner's Viral Photos finder is my go-to tool when I’m looking for photos to share on my page.

3. Twitter Lists

My life would be a mess without Twitter lists.

They let me organize my stream & stay up to date with news that's important to me.

I have lists with:

  • Thought leaders
  • Celebrities
  • News
  • Brands
  • Businesses

When it comes to content curation, never underestimate the power of a properly managed Twitter list.

Follow the right people & you're looking at a library of content like no other!

Here are 101 choices if you’re looking for some Twitter lists to follow:

4. Reddit

What can't you find on Reddit?!

Popular topics on the website include:

  • Tech
  • Gaming
  • Humor
  • Fashion
  • Video
  • Technology
  • Music
  • Sports



Basically, Reddit has everything.

It's not the fastest way to find content, but it's very interesting & lots of fun to explore.

TIP: use the "Funny" Subreddit to find humorous photos & memes.

5. Hacker News

Hacker News is similar to Reddit, but uses a different algorithm to push results onto the front page.

There is also no voting system on Hacker News to rank content -- as there is on Reddit.

But you’ll find great content on the site -- even some controversial stuff just in case you want to get a bit edgy on your Facebook page.

Use the search tool to find content relevant to your industry.


Hacker News lets you search for content from:

  • the last 24 hours
  • the past week
  • the past months
  • forever
  • a specific date

6. Flipboard

I love Flipboard! There, I said it.

It’s a must-have app for your mobile device or tablet. I like Flipboard because its compact, easy to use & packed with content.

>> Click to Tweet <<

Like on Reddit, there are many categories to follow -- including:

  • News
  • Business
  • Tech & Science
  • Sports
  • Shopping
  • Photos & Design
  • Arts & Culture
  • Living
  • Food
  • Travel
  • Style

awesome-posts-for-facebookOne of the best parts of Flipboard is when the app recommends sources for you to subscribe to based on your interests.

7. is a marketer's best friend.

>> Click to Tweet <<

Content on the website is based on votes from users &'s algorithm.

That combination creates magic!


Content on covers subjects like:
