The top site for following such trends is Mashable, which is the social media guide. Mashable reports interesting posts on the Internet and those that are currently getting a high volume of hits.
The posts are grouped into channels under headings such as:
- Social Media
- Web Video
The home page of Mashable is a collage of top posts from every channel. You can follow this home page collage by clicking any of the social media icons, like RSS feed, Twitter, and Facebook, that are located in a box on the right side of the page.
But what if your interest is mainly with one channel? Well, the good folks at Mashable thought of that too and have made a way for you to subscribe to individual feeds.
Under the social media icons (in that box on the right side of the page) you’ll find a link for More Subscription Options. Click it and you’ll be redirected to a page that has a variety of follow links for each channel.
Staying apprised of what’s trending on the Internet is one of the best ways to keep your blog relevant and fresh. And, it will give you great content ideas too.
