What is Share2Steem ?
Share2Steem is an application that allows users to post on the Steem blockchain using their favourite social media apps. For the time being, you can cross-post to Steemit from Instagram, Youtube and Twitter with no hassle.
All you have to do is register on the app's website (login secured with Steemconnect), link your social network accounts and then post using the hashtag #share2steem within your social posts. The app will take care of the rest.
This is a great entry point to the Steem blockchain for new users, as they won't have to manage an additional platform : everything is automated. You post on Instagram, and your photo lands on the Steem blockchain without any extra efforts. The same for Twitter, Youtube, and, soon, many more !

Register, link your social media accounts and start earning STEEM with your social media posts right now ! It's easy !
What are the benefits of S2S ?
This program's purpose is clear : to attract lots of people to the Steem blockchain on the promise to monetize easily their social media activities, without changing their habits at first.
They can continue to use their favourite apps, and come on Steem only to withdraw their earnings. But the trap is here : many of them will show interest into how the blockchain works. They will then begin to post some content exclusively on Steem and little by little change their social networks habits, leading us on the path to democratization.
Share2Steem V1 Release
We are pleased to announce Share2Steem v1 has been successfully deployed last friday. Some bugs were encountered but were quickly fixed. Today Share2Steem V1 is fully functional.
1) Multiple accounts management : Compared to beta version, it is now possible to link multiple accounts of the same type. You can now redirect many Instagram accounts to a single Steemit account for example. Also, the account pairing method was simplified thanks to a wizard which shows you all the steps from A to Z.
2) Post customization : You can now customize the way your post will show on Steemit. You will be able to place your avatar where you want (or even not display it at all), use a custom footer, add links, etc...
3) Leaderboard and scoring : We set up a S2S score and leaderboard for the rewards dispatch. The leaderboard will take many criterias into account, such as consistency in posting using S2S, participation in the curation trail, delegation, etc.
4) Curation trails : A double curation trail is also put in place.
- The first one works in a classic way : users vote posts as they arrive if their voting power is higher than the limit they set up.
- The second one uses the principle of the pool : the users defines the number of votes he wants to offer to the pool per day, and the votes are casted independently of the voting power value once a day.
5) Referral program : In order to spread the word, we also offer a referral program. If a user refers someone, he will get 4% of his earnings (we will lower our commission from 10% to 6%). We hope with this program to be able to spread the word outside Steemit more easily, and hit a whole new population.
What's next ?
1) Spread the word
Before we have enough Steem Power to claim new accounts and delegate Steem Power to these newly created accounts, our growth will have to come from Steemians. So we need to reach out to all people currently posting duplicates (one post on network X and one post on Steem) to use our application. More users should attract more delegators, that's the first step.
When we have the opportunity to create accounts and delegate to them, our growth strategy will mutate to become focused on external growth : attracting users from the platforms we propose in our reposting service, with the promise of monetizing their social media activities.
We are planning in a near future some events and contests. This will certainly bring new users to the platform and make some of them win cool prizes !
What kind of events and contests would you like to see ?
3) New social medias
As we said before, we won't limit S2S to Instagram, Twitter and Youtube. We plan to add many other social media, to bring more and more users to the blockchain !
Twitch will be added soon, what social media do you want next ?
Call to delegation
A certain amount of Steem Power is the key to success for this project. We hope and plan to bring masses of new users to the Steem blockchain in the near future, and this SP will be useful for us in two ways :
- Respect our promise of monetizing social media activity. Indeed, if we have lots of members, a high Steem Power is necessary to upvote all of them with more than dust.
- Offer account creation - as stated before -, so users will be able to create and manage their accounts from one place. A lot of SP is necessary for account claiming, and with rewards gained by @share2steem in SP (from the fee on posts), we will be able to make a small delegation to newcomers, so they can interact with the blockchain.
We decided to treat delegators as investors and offer them a ROI. Indeed, 25% of our liquid revenue will be dispatched between delegators, in other words 1,25% of the total posts earnings, based upon the delegation's amount and age.
But delegations will also be taken into account in the S2S score calculations. If a delegator uses the app, he will get bonus points which will lead to higher votes on his posts.
