Explore and share company content with Amplify

Audience: Advocates

You can explore and share any available content in either the Amplify mobile app or the web version. This includes highlights from the latest content, popular content, and topics you aren’t subscribed to yet.

Note: You might find that you can't edit content or share some things to certain networks. Amplify admins can “lock” certain social networks for individual content. They may also designate some content for certain networks only.

Explore Amplify content

Browse through your content to find items that interest you and that you want to share.

Mobile Web

The Amplify mobile app offers two ways to browse available content:

From Home

On the Home screen, 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.

From Content

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.

Share Amplify content

When you've found content you'd like to share to your own social accounts, follow these steps.

Important: Sharing to Facebook and Instagram profiles follows a different workflow (see the following section Share Amplify content to a Facebook or Instagram profile).

Mobile Web
  1. Select Share.
  2. Select an icon to share the content to the default account for that social network.

    Tip: If you have more than one account for a social network, you can change the default sharing account by going to Profile > Account > Settings > Select Social Network, and then selecting an account from the list for each social network.

  3. Optional: If your admin has enabled it, you can select Personalize to edit the post.
  4. Optional: Use the Copy link icon to share the content with other Amplify members internally via email, Slack, or any other communication tool you may use.
  5. Select Share now to publish immediately, Schedule for me to have Hootsuitechoose a time for you, or Pick a time to choose a date and time to publish.

The first time you share to a social network, you may be prompted to connect it to Amplify. Enter your information, and then select Authorize.

Share Amplify content to a Facebook or Instagram profile

Mobile Web
