Can I use same post for Different Social Media Sites?

19 replies
I am now running social media marketing campaign for my blog. I have created different social media accounts for my blogs. I am now posting in these sites.
If I want to promote one of my blog post in different social media sites, Can I use the same post for different social media accounts? As example, can I use my Facebook post exact same in Google+ or Do I need to change the post( for the same blog post) every time in different social media sites?

Waiting for kind response guys. Thanks in advance.

    Re-write for each of them - don't use the same post on each of the different social media sites.

    If you don't rewrite, that would be considered a spam. The whole idea is to have unique posts. correct me if am wrong.

    You can use automation apps like Buffer or Hootsuite. Be careful though, content you create even with these automation apps will require crafting to each social network i.e a Twitter post (140. chars) is going to be different from something you post to Youtube (video)

    Yes you can but I wouldn't advise you to do that. Rewriting one sentence is not that hard and won't take much time so try to be original for every post you post on different social media sites.

    If you created same accounts on various social networking sites with same profile information then you can share same post, but I will advise you to make some changes to your post otherwise you may be considered as spam. It's not bad to use same post on different networking sites as the peoples connected with you are different and if you want to convey same message to all of them, then you can use same post but, most of the time try to avoid these.

    You need to post unique content on all these social media sites. You can not post the same content on different social media sites.

    If you want to share your post in social media sites then you can use same content.

    I tend to adjust the content a bit to meet the requirements of each network

    Major media outlets post the same message across multiple platforms, so I'd say its fine.

    It is perfectly normal to use same content you created on your social profiles, anyone who thinks otherwise is an amateur. Just follow guidelines and make content fit nicely. Google barely can read social network data as most are private. Duplicate content only applies to your website.

    If you want to make a post on social media, keep it slightly different from others that deliver the same message.

    I usually post the same information, adapting it a bit for the requirement of particular social media.

      As previously stated, major media outlets release the same content across multiple networks. The thing here is that often followers will follow on more than one network. Being a social media service provider, my general rule is to simply mix it up. Don't do anything the same all the time. I tend to pair Facebook and Twitter posts using the same link and image; however, I change the wording of my post. Sometimes I will pair posts to Facebook and Google+...same thing, change up the wording a bit. Sometimes, I'll post content to just one network exclusively.

      Concentrate more on the content that you are sharing. Is the article you are linking something people will want to read, or just something YOU want them to read? Is your image an attention-grabber? These things are far more important. If you're posting stellar content, the rest is automatic.

    While the message across social media platforms can be the same -- make sure you're adding something to the conversation. Posting the same link as everybody else with the same take won't help you stand out from the crowd.

    Does using the same exact hashtags on an image only post have any affect on search engines? For example, does having an Instagram photo that puts the same exact post on Facebook and Twitter cause a negative effect in any way?

      I think its ok to have the same post social media sites but a little change should be better.

    It called syndication. Yes, it is fine to syndicate your posts to various channels. No different than you see the same news story on different stations of your television. Big companies do this all the time. It would be nice if you could cater your content to each social network by maybe adding a new intro or something, but syndicating content every now & then, no, there is nothing wrong with that.
