The content that you produce for Quora is perfect for almost any social media channel because it allows your followers more thoughtful topics to interact with and share.
Quora makes it easy for you to share your content on top social networks natively, and in this lesson we are going to show you how to do it, the right way.
Connecting Your Social Channels To Your Account
The first step is to connect your social channels to your Quora account. Start on your Quora dashboard, and click on the profile icon. Next, click on the “settings” option from the menu to go to the account settings page.
Once there, move to the “connected accounts” section. There you can connect to Twitter and Facebook. Let’s connect to Twitter first.
Start by clicking on the “connect Twitter account” link. A Twitter log in window will appear. Enter your login details, and then click on “authorize app”. Now your Quora account is connected to your Twitter account!
Let’s now connect to Facebook. Click on the “connect Facebook account” link. A Facebook log in window will appear. Enter your log in details, and click on “log in”. A Quora authorization prompt will appear. Click on “continue as”. And that’s it! Now your Quora account is connected to Facebook.
Promoting Your Quora Content With Social Posts
It is fairly easy to share your Quora content to your social channels after you connect your accounts. You can do it right when you compose an answer, or when you edit an existing answer.
In this lesson we are going to show you how by editing an existing answer from our Quora account.
To find an existing answer, click on the profile icon, and then click on the “your content” option from the menu.
Once on your content page, locate an answer that you’d like to share with your social media followers. Click on the question title to enter the question page, and then click on “more sharing options”.
As you can see here, sharing options include your connected social accounts. Let’s click on the Facebook icon to share to Facebook first.
A “post to Facebook” window will appear, and all you have to do is to add a comment about your answer into the caption field, and then to click on the “post to Facebook” button.
Awesome job! Let’s now click on the sharing options icon again to share on Twitter. First, click on the Twitter icon. A “Share on twitter” window will appear, and all you have to do is to add a comment about the Quora link you are sharing, add some hashtags, and then to click on “tweet”.
And that is it! As you can see, sharing your Quora content to your social channels is a walk in the park, and you don’t need to leave Quora to do it!
