What is a Social Media Content Creator

We believe young people know best about who and what young people like. That’s why our Social Media Content Creators are young people (aged 13-18) that help us to design social media posts that are of interest to young people. We try to make hashtag posts everyday on Facebook and Twitter, whilst keeping Instagram for our live updates. Content Creators, ‘work from home’ to create thier content and spend as much time they want making posts. It is a great way to volunteer and support a youth organisation and improve the voice of young people.

We make the following types of posts for Facebook and Twitter.

Post Allocations

Here’s are our hashtags, that you can create content for. We would like everyone to help create content for #AmazingYoungPeople as a priority.

#MovieMonday (a weekly post recommending what film or TV show to watch that week)

#TuesdayThing (let everyone know about any upcoming local events, fairs, fates, etc for young people)

#WellbeingWednesday (weekly advice/guidance on how to maintain positive and healthy mental or physical health)

#ThoughtforThursday (a compelling thought for the week)

#FunFactFriday (share a strange but true fact for the week)
