Social media is no longer just a way to kill time. These platforms can help you find a job, market your products and connect with valuable contacts. They can even spark business ideas.
Instead of aimlessly scrolling through your Facebook timeline and Twitter feed, here are eight clever ways to use social media to find new business ideas.
1. Search questions in subreddits.
If you’re on the prowl for a new tech product or service idea, head over to news and entertainment social media site Reddit and start surfing the subreddits (subject areas). In particular, people looking for new business ideas should review subreddits and use the Ask Me Anything feature, where users can ask experts and celebrities questions that may uncover potential ideas for small or midsize businesses.
