Curate is Triberr’s newest feature.
Triberr Curate gives you the ability to integrate different sources into your sharing flow. Now you can curate different content sources from within Triberr and immediately add it to your queue. Curate amplifies your sharing power by giving you greater control and flexibility over what you share and where you share it to.
With curate Triberr member’s can now integrate
- RSS Feed Sources
- Any source with a valid and importable RSS feed
- Social Sources
- Search Term(s)
- Triberr Categories
Aside from only being able to share items from your Tribemates’ RSS feeds as well as your blog(s) curate now allows you to integrate other content sources for sharing. Ultimately, our goal is to eliminate all the erroneous steps associated with curating and scheduling content for social media.
How to Use Triberr’s Curate Feature
We designed curate to provide the greatest amount of flexibility and organization for curating and sharing content. If your a current Triberr user curate’s features will seem very familiar. The basic structure of curate is outlined as follows:
- Content Groups : Allows you to organize content sources into folders and specify which social accounts are shared to when adding an item to your queue from a source in that content group.
- Content Source : Allows you to add different types of sources to find new content from around the web – including tribe categories, blog/rss, and social feeds.
- Curate Settings : Allows you to edit the settings for your content groups, sources, and attached social networks for each group.
- Queue: Items added from content sources to the queue will be shared to the social media accounts that are assigned to each content group.
Brief Overview of Triberr Curate
Creating a Content Group
To use Curate, start by creating a content group. To add a content group click on the plus icon located in the side navigation. The content group will only be visible to you and is simply a way to organize your sources as well as set specific share settings.
Once you create a content group you can then navigate to Curate Settings located at the bottom of the page. To edit the content group select the group name located under the ‘Preferences’ column. Once the group name is selected you will see settings specific to that content group. Specify what social networks you’d like to share content in this group to checking the desired social network listed under social accounts. *To use curate at least one social account should be connected. Content groups containing only social sources will not display. To view social sources click on individual sources within the group.
Creating a Content Source
After creating a content group and editing the group’s settings you can then begin adding sources to the content group. To Add a content source select the “Add Source” button located at the top of the page. Once selected a modal entitled ‘Add New Content’ will appear. Here you can specify the type of content you want to add and assign that content to a specific content group. You can create as many content groups as you like, so long as the number of content sources does not exceed source limits for your account level (limits listed here).
You can add many different source types. We categorize source types by rss feeds, social feeds, and keyword feeds. The following is a detailed list of the type of feeds you can add as a content source.
- RSS Feeds
- Any valid and importable RSS Feed
- Social Feeds
- Twitter (must connect Twitter account first)
- Twitter User
- Twitter Hashtag
- Twitter Search Term(s)
- Pinterest User
- Pinterest Board
- YouTube User
- YouTube Channel
- YouTube Search Term(s)
- Triberr Categories
- Any Triberr Category
- Twitter (must connect Twitter account first)
Each content type will require different sets of information. For example, if you select Twitter as the content type you can then decide whether the source is a user, hashtag, or search term. Once you select the specific Twitter source type you can then enter the appropriate information. When a specific content type is selected you will see a clickable example of how the type should be entered into the modal to make it easy for you to input the correct information.
Please note if content type details are entered incorrectly we will be unable to retrieve information as the source will be invalid. This pertains primarily to RSS feeds, specific user handles, channel ids, board names, any source type that requires an absolute value. For other content types which are variable in nature like keywords or search terms, Triberr will retrieve posts based on the value entered.
Using Content Source Features
Each content source has four different views available. The views include
Title View Only
You can specify the default view settings in Curate Settings located at the bottom of the left navigation. Each view will have its specific nuances in terms of formatting. However, you will be able to see all of the following data in each view:
- Source or Author
- Time Frame Published (e.g. 7 hours ago, 2 days ago)
- Content Headline
- Add To Queue Button
In addition to the different view default settings, each content source will have a drop-down, to the right of each headline, which will give you easy access to the different available views mentioned above.
How Do You Share Content from Curate
Sharing content in curate is pretty simple. If you’ve shared content from a tribal stream or home stream sharing from curate will be a breeze. Earlier we emphasized the importance of Content Group Settings. Each content group has a specific share setting. This gives you ultimate control over how you share curated content. For example, you can create a content group that shares strictly to Twitter. In the content group setting simply ensure only the Twitter account is selected.
Please note, the social network accounts displayed in curate are taken from your Triberr settings page. To add, delete, or change the social frequency of of your connected social networks please visit your settings area and click on the tab entitled “My Social Networks”
Each membership level will have different source limits. Additionally, when you reach a max limit for content sources you will be alerted in the ‘Add Source’ modal. Please see the table below for limits specific to your membership level. *Important Limits are subject to change as we are still in BETA
