Social UX for Media: The Perfect Layout Explained

Everything is about the feed right now because that's where your audience lives. The comfort of scrolling through articles, news, posts, and videos has taken over social media, and we're not letting that ship sail without getting on it.

Meet RebelMouse's Social UX for Media Layout


Let's break down its key features:

"Keep reading..."

Just like Facebook, we wanted to give users the option to show either a snippet of their content or the entire post. Improving the reading experience is part of the heart of this layout.

Share Quickly to Social with These Handy Buttons

There's no need to go inside the actual article to share it to social. You can now quickly share content via the buttons at the bottom of each card for a seamless, easy process.

URL Changes on Scroll

As you scroll down the Social UX for Media layout, the URL in the address bar changes with each new post that moves onto the screen. Each URL change counts as a page view.

More Content

On the top-right of each post's card, you'll see the text "More [tag] →." The [tag], defined by you, indicates that a piece of content belongs to a section. If you click on the link, you'll be taken to a section that contains all of the articles that have been categorized under it. In the screenshot example above, the link would be "More Dancers & Companies ."

Here’s Why You Should Focus on Valley Elevation

We've all experienced it. The dopamine-filled highs of watching site stats blast through the ceiling on our favorite web analytics platform after a piece of content goes viral. As digital publishers, it's in our blood to crave these spikes. But the sobering crash back to reality that follows, and the ensuing scramble to come up with the next piece of content that can match the previous peak, are seemingly inevitable. This constant seesawing is a frustrating and fatiguing experience, no matter the size of your budget or marketing team. What's a publisher seeking stability to do? Are we all targeting the right goals, or is there more here than meets the eye?

Enter Valley Elevation

Turns out there is more to your stats than just those towering summits. It's the concept of valley elevation, and it's been staring you in the face the entire time. Coined by Bradley Schwarzenbach and popularized by bestselling author Andrew Davis, valley elevation posits that you should be focusing on the depth of your metrics' troughs instead of its peaks.

Content Creators: Here’s a Look at the Publishing Experience That's Changing the Game

If you're a content creator or social curator, you know all about the challenges tied to algorithm changes, industry shifts, and the ongoing fight to sustain reach in an oversaturated market.

At RebelMouse, we create lean tech that's built to iterate alongside these fluctuations. Chances are the CMS you're using was created before social. If that's true, you may still view content on your website and in social feeds as two different entities you have to control and manage. We're here to blur those lines for you and take publishing where it needs to be in 2018.
