Social media managers or Social media enthusiasts are always on the lookout for information.

It could specifically be related to new features launched on a particular social platform.

However, it could also simply be information on some recent changes, what is trending, and every tiny detail of new stuff happening in the social space.

While the social platforms themselves keep you updated here are 7 great sources we think you should bookmark to stay updated and be able to consume this information, repurpose content and share it with your audience in fun ways.
