What is a content source?

What is a "content source" exactly?

When a source is added to your content list in your Paper Settings Dashboard, will automatically pull in any articles, images or videos pulled from that source.

In many cases, a "content source" is simply a social media account such as a user from Twitter, a Facebook group or page, or a Youtube channel. A content source might also be a group of users together, such as a Twitter list.   In these examples, each time the users of the service share content on the social media channel, pulls the content automatically into your paper in a readable format!  

Other kinds of sources include an RSS feed which pulls in any new content posted on a particular website you follow or our own Genius Source which pulls in content based on keywords found within the millions of articles we pull in daily.
