Explore and share company content with Amplify
You can explore and share any content available from your organization in either the Amplify mobile app Home feed or the topic lists in the Amplify desktop app. This includes highlights from the latest content, popular content, and topics you aren’t subscribed to yet.
Note: You might find that some content is either not editable or not shareable on certain social networks. Amplify admins can “lock” certain social networks for individual pieces of content, and they may designate some content for certain social networks only.
Explore Amplify content
Browse through your organization's content to find items that interest you and that you might want to share.
The Amplify mobile app offers two ways to browse available content:
On the Home screen, scroll down to see and select any of the following:
- Share more content. This option takes you to the Content feed, which contains all content in your chosen topics, and all content tagged for everyone in the organization.
- Share more popular content. This option takes you to the Popular feed, containing the 10 most popular posts for the week in your organization. Popularity is ranked based on number of reads, likes, and shares.
- Explore All Topics. This option takes you to the Topics feed, which contains content from all of the topics you have access to but aren't yet subscribed to.
Selecting Content in the mobile app shows you content from all of the topics you're currently subscribed to.
Select any post to access the source link and read it in full, or to see a list of people in your organization who have liked, read, or shared the post.
To explore your organization’s topics in the Amplify desktop app, select any topic on the left under Subscribed Topics or Explore Other Topics, or select All content to see everything on one page.
The Recommended option is powered by machine learning and displays relevant content based on your own activity as well as your colleagues' activity.
You can search for topics in the Amplify desktop app by keyword. Simply select the search bar in the top right and enter a keyword to find relevant shareable content.
