Many people are interested in the so-called “fast lane” on social media. This is the portion of the site where users can post videos, pictures, and status updates. These users often spend a lot of time there, engaging with other users and liking, commenting on, or sharing content. To entice more people to “join the club” and gain access to this special area, some social media platforms reward you with “speedway points” for engaging with content.
What can you do with your speedway points? There are several options, but you need to remember that the more you use your speedway points, the more you’ll get out of them. Below, we’ll discuss the possible ways you can benefit from using the speedway points on social media.
Rewards And Prizes
One of the biggest draws of the “fast lane” is the rewards and prizes that some social media platforms offer. Many of these platforms give you points for simply being on their network, so it’s in their interest to keep you coming back for more. Some of these platforms will even give you points for just doing regular things, like liking a post or commenting on a poll.
Even when you don’t “qualify” for the rewards and prizes, participating in contests and getting points for doing so are great opportunities to win some extra cash, gift cards, and tons of stickers and buttons.
Customized Profiles And Timelines
One of the things that makes the “fast lane” so attractive is the personalized experience that you get. When you log on to your favorite social media platform, you see a strip of content at the top of the page. This is known as your “timeline.” The more you engage with this content, the more you’ll see from this point forward. If you click on a story, you’ll see a preview of the content and then be taken to a page with the full post. This means that you get to see more stories as you engage with the content on the site.
The nice thing about this is that the content changes based on what you do. If you comment on a post, the platform will remember you and show you more content that is tailored to your interests. If you follow a topic, the content will gradually change to match your interests and show you more relevant pieces of content.
Builds Your Personal Brand
One of the best things about using the “fast lane” on social media is that it allows you to establish yourself as an expert on a particular subject. When you choose a topic for your profile, you have the option to make it public or private. A public profile allows anyone to see your content, whereas a private profile shows only your followers. If you’re worried about what to put in your profile, don’t be. As long as you’re putting in the work, it’s important to follow some basic advice to make sure that your profile presents the right image.
