Content syndication refers to the way a website can avail the content of other websites. It also means receiving content in any deliverable format through subscription. Over the years, it has proved to be of great importance to thousands of companies and individuals who use the internet to accomplish their needs.
Content syndication is very good at distributing information and reaching many internet users as well as increasing the influence of the information. It is therefore widely used for e-commerce to market products and to spread news and opportunities. However, it is only possible to reach as many people as possible when using popular chat applications with many users. The following are some of the widely used chat applications that increase content syndication.
Facebook is currently the most popular social website with millions of people using it. It provides a platform over which people all over the world can socialize, share ideas and opinions and even date. However, Facebook does not allow any user to market or do business in its website, but it allows members to post links which can lead other members to the source websites alongside chatting. With more than five hundred million users, Facebook can greatly increase content syndication.
Twitter is said to be the second popular social website after Facebook with millions of users too. Similar to Facebook, twitter also provides a platform over which millions of registered users can socialize and share ideas. It also allows users to post links that can lead other users to source websites. This website also accommodates multimedia content such as short videos or even pictures. Twitter is therefore one of the few websites that can maximize content syndication.
YouTube is the widely used website for video sharing. It allows blogging of short videos as well as sharing comic, educative, musical and any other relevant video. It only restricts videos that are abusive or have illegal content from being shared. YouTube is therefore very good for syndication of video and presentation contents. It is also the most popular site where millions of people visit to check for latest movies, music and even news.
You can be assured of a great influence and awareness of video products when using YouTube for syndication. Lastly, the website also allows users to chat and comment on products in collaboration with other social networking websites such as Facebook and Twitter.
LinkedIn, just like Facebook and twitter, is a social networking website, specifically for professionals. It provides a platform where people of different occupation and specialization can connect and share ideas, opinions and experiences. It has more than two hundred million registered career people with millions of conversations and discussions. It allows members to embed other online services such as books. For this reason it can greatly increase content syndication by reaching to as many people as all the people connected to one’s profile.
Zinzz is a chatting service through voice or text messages. Response in this application is instant. It supports chatting with other service providers that use XMPP protocol. An internet link can be added to the text message and direct respondents to the source website of the information or product. It can therefore be used to increase content syndication.
