7 Surprising Places to Find Awesome Posts for Facebook

Some of these may surprise you.

New call-to-action

1. Tumblr

Amazingly, Tumblr is still underutilized.

But There's a TON of content on Tumblr and 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 and 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 a social media scheduling tool.

Post Planner also offers:

  • Trending content for any industry or niche
  • Pre-written status ideas to help you boost engagement
  • Popular social media images, GIF's, and memes

The popular social media images are my favorite!

I can easily find the most shared and engaging photos from any Facebook page or profile.


Post Planner's search tool 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 and 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 and 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 and lots of fun to explore.

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

5. Hacker News

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

There's 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 and packed with content.

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

  • News
  • Business
  • Tech and Science
  • Sports
  • Shopping
  • Photos and Design
  • Arts and 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. Inbound.org

Inbound.org is a marketer's best friend.

Content on the website is based on votes from users and Inbound.org's algorithm.

That combination creates magic!


Content on Inbound.org covers subjects like:
