Today I wanted to share a real quick post with you.
Here are 3 Awesome Social Media tools you should be using!
HootSuite is a web based service that allows me to post status updates to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, My WordPress.com blog and more. I use one tool to simplify all my efforts.
I like the fact that it is easy to use and is web based. I have two computers I work from a desktop and a laptop so I prefer web based services.
I use HootSuite to not only post status messages but I use it to post links. They have a built in URL shortener and it can track clicks on links for you, see my previous post here.
I also like HootSuite because I can setup tabs to follow specific Twitter users, lists of Twitter people, or search for specific keywords or hashtags. This makes it a lot easier for me to follow a lot of people on Twitter.
2. Fully Follow
I recently discovered this one. This is a very simple site. Basically instead of giving people separate links to follow you on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter you can use one link instead.
I give people a link like this: http://www.fullyfollow.me/benfitts They can quickly and easily follow me on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. You can also pick 2 of the 3 services if you don’t want to pick all 3.
Cinch is a website/application that allows me to record voice messages and broadcast them to my Facebook or Twitter.
You can download the application and put it on your smartphone to record messages direct from your cell phone. Or you can dial a special phone number and record voicemail messages to be broadcast.
You can also add your Cinch messages to a web site by pasting in a code like this:
