This is one of the biggest challenges of social media.

Most companies and bloggers have a hard time finding inspiration to come up with varied content. Here are some ideas:

1. Create lists.

Example: “10 powerful tips to increase fan engagement on Facebook”

Most people prefer to hear bad news, or things they should avoid. It’s sad, but true. Take the negative angle of a story—you’ll be surprised by the traffic.

Example: “Personal branding on LinkedIn: 10 mistakes to avoid”
