Being prolific in social media, I am always on the prowl for useful tools, resources and social media platforms to expedite the time involved in producing and sharing relevant content across the social universe. I’ve recently discovered Amplify.com. Amplify is, in my opinion, one of the most useful, powerful yet simple to use free resources available.
A hybrid between Twitter and a blog, Amplify allows you to easily highlight or clip content (up to 1000 characters of text and images & video) you find relevant, add in your own opinion if you wish, then amplify it to your friends and followers across the internet! Amplify is especially convenient for those who wish to further their cause or share their passion, yet have little time to consistently produce original content.
To Clip or Not to Clip:
Viewers always have the option of clicking through to the original post to read the entire article. And if you simply cannot choose highlights from the post and want to share the entire article, Amplify gives you the option to “amplify” an entire URL.
A Unique Social Community
Amplify is also a social media platform. Just sign in with Twitter or Facebook and begin to share content. Like most social media platforms, you can create a profile, follow sources, view your newsfeed from those sources, recommend clips, comment and share.
