In this blog you will see how to configure Content Type Hub in SharePoint 2013.

The site collection, which will host content types for sharing, is known as content type hub. Content Type Hubs enables you to create new content types and then make them available to other SharePoint site collections in the same or different web applications or across farms. This is a publisher-subscriber model, where content types are published by the Content Type Hubs using Metadata service and subscribers are the web applications in the SharePoint Farm. Finally, all the site collections in the web application which subscribe to this Metadata service will get this content type. To enable your site collection to be a content type hub you need to activate a feature known as "Content Type Syndication Hub" in the site collection level. In this blog you will see how to configure Content Type Hub in SharePoint 2013.
