Google+

This up and coming social network combines many of Google’s rich keyword search capabilities, allowing you to super-easily connect with images, videos, infographics and links that are aligned with your businesses social strategy.

Simply type a query into the search bar at the top of your screen. Results are automatically filtered by the “best” posts in the last several hours. The benefit here is that you know your content is going to be influential and fresh. You can also sort by most recent to ensure your content is relevant. This search function is a great tool to get a live comprehensive stream of posts that match your keyword criteria and are useful for your business.

AllTop:

As a business, this could be a wonderful tool to find and gather unique content specifically relating to your business and audience. The AllTop homepage pulls in trending stories, but if you’re looking for specific content, it’s best to immediately start filtering by category. Each of the major topics has hundreds of sub-categories. Select the sub-category which best fits your businesses focus.

Subcategories leads you to dedicated pages, where blogs are listed in order of popularity. The benefit here is that under each blog title, all of the links are posted in order of relevancy, which helps you discover the most shareable content.
