3 Alternative Platforms for Sharing Information

Hello there.

When you need to find information that’s a bit different or you have unusual questions to ask or you want to keep up to date with developments on a range of subject matters, where do you go?

If you want to write articles or read contributions from all sorts of writers where do you look?

This week, I will be sharing three alternative online platforms where anyone and everyone can share their thoughts.  If you’ve attended one of my workshops then you will already have heard me mention two of the three, which can be used to share blog articles.

While my choices may not be to everyone’s taste they are worth a look anyway.

Here they are:

Quora

‘A place to share knowledge and better understand the world.’

According to Wikipedia, Quora is a ‘question and answer site,’ and the site ‘is edited and organized by its community of users.’

Medium

‘Read, write and share stories that matter.’

In The Guardian, the founder of Medium Ev Williams gives us a hint as to he created this online platforms:

“There was still something missing and broken with the system we’re relying on to get our information, that told us how to understand the world.”

Reddit

‘The front page of the internet.’

If you’re not sure of what or who Reddit is, here’s a definition by Wikipedia,

Reddit is an American social news aggregation, web content rating, and discussion website. Reddit’s registered community members can submit content such as text posts or direct links. Registered users can then vote submissions up or down that determines their position on the page.’

As well as  Reddit there is a Reddit for business and the Social Media Examiner tells us about the six ways to use Reddit for business.

If those three aren’t enough, then here’s a definitive list of places to share your blog posts from Search Engine Journal.  There are more platforms there than you can shake a stick at!

As business owners, we are always on the look out for new ideas and we also want to share the knowledge that we have acquired, so these platforms are three of the many ways in which we can contribute to the business community.

I hope that this has been of some help to you.

Take care
