If you where not aware, in the past few weeks O.C.D has been curating Steem content that gets shared on Reddit, be it on the designated sticky post in our subreddit /r/steemit or out in the wild when it gets shared in subreddits related to the content steemians make.
We have seen success in this initiative in the form of increased activity on both our subreddit and of Steem content being shared on Reddit and with that in mind we would like to expand our Reddit-Steem activity to drive even more traffic from Reddit into Steem and hopefully convert redditors into Steemians and increase the traffic and ad revenue steemit is currently getting!
If you want to know how we curate Steemians that share their content on reddit right now, check out this post for a short set of instructions. We are going to keep curating steemians that share their posts in our sticky and those that share their own content on subreddits related to their created content. We encourage this a lot more than sharing it in our sticky if you believe your content can fit on a subreddit where it can be seen openly by a lot of people!
How does this initiative work?
For starters, did you know that Steemit posts have a share button? Yes? No? Well they are right there below every post that gets shared here on Steemit and we want you to use them more often! And we will reward you for doing so, especially the Reddit one which is the one we can actually keep track of... but you should share Steem posts everywhere! Your posts and other people's posts as well!
After Pressing the share button you will be presented with the following screen:
As you can see, there's a pretty handy option for sharing original content where you are presented with optimal communities for sharing content created here on Steem but if you feel like these communities just don't match the content you want to share, feel free to browse this list of popular subreddits and find the one that meets the criteria of the original content you want to share:
We Have Now Expanded to Twitter as Well!
The process for sharing on Twitter is pretty much the same as sharing on Reddit! Use the Twitter share button to share original content created by other Steemians and share it on Twitter using the #OCSteem hashtag and other appropriate tags you might deem usable for said post! Remember that after all, the whole point of this initiative is to bring awareness about Steem to users outside of our sphere!
How to Earn Rewards for Sharing Posts?
Now you know how to share, now lets show you how to earn rewards for your favorite author and for yourself! There are 2 ways of getting curated for sharing Steem content on Reddit, the Sharing is Caring initiative is to reward you for sharing others content there but if you want to share your own content, visit /r/steemit and share it there on our weekly sticky for a chance at being curated by OCD there, also feel free to share it around reddit communities that might enjoy your original content!
If you want to earn rewards by sharing original content from other users here on Steem, you just got to follow the share instructions presented above and you have to leave a comment right here, telling us what post you shared and where, just like this:
You don't even have to give us the direct link to Reddit, mentioning which subreddit you shared it is enough for us to verify you! He indeed did it right!
Both the creator and the sharer will get an equal proportion of this posts liquid rewards so make sure to upvote it and share it with your friends for maximum results!
To reduce the overload in just 1 thread we are going to be running 2 of these weekly now! So feel free to start sharing now in this thread and not in the sunday edition!
