As someone who peruses through endless articles and new stories each and every day, it’s certainly easy to get caught up in all of the clutter the open web has to offer us. After all of the searching and scavenging, I refine the information I would like to share with my network. This process varies from person to person, but the end result tends to be the same: everyone wants to communicate and celebrate those stories which interest them the most. And voilà! In comes Summify to help with this endeavor.
What problem does Summify solve for you?
My job as a sourcer requires that I spend large amounts of time online as I explore ways to keep up to date on industry trends, company news, and employment updates. In order to share this information with my network, I like to make sure that what I’m posting to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, etc. will be of relevance and significance to those who will read it. Summify not only helps me keep right on top of all the important news and events in my world, it also helps me make this same pertinent information readily accessible to others who might greatly benefit from it as well. Summify makes it that much easier to communicate news and articles by now including a share feature that allows its users to post to their social networks. By being able to easily share these stories from one website, it saves me time to concentrate on other areas of my job, while continually building my network.
How are you using Summify as a tool?
I discovered Summify after I was mentioned on Twitter in another user’s daily summary. Lucky for me, my curiosity was piqued! After exploring the website and creating a summary of my own, I discovered how much of an asset this website could be for me. I tend to share my summaries with hashtags that highlight the main topics, which allows me to intrigue not only my followers, but those interested in those same subjects. I advocate this website to anyone who not only wants to save time with their daily information search, but to see what everyone else is talking about as well.
All in all, Summify has certainly become an integral part of my social media tool kit. I highly recommended this service to anyone who is looking for easy access to the stories that will be of interest and worth passing on to their whole network.
