Same Content. Different Platform.

Virginia Social Media Manager/ Elixir Media Co.

I get the questions all the time: Can’t I just post the same thing across twitter, facebook, and instagram?

Surprisingly my answer is YES… BUT NO. 

YES, you can share the same content, but you have to present it in a different way.

The key to knowing how to share the same content is understanding HOW the different social media platforms are used, which I could write an entire book about, but instead I’ll share this cheat sheet.
