It can be laborious to manage all the social media accounts when you have published a new article on your blog and the best way to do this is to use some good apps for social media management. Especially for bloggers, it can be a time consuming process to share your posts individually on every social media sites. We, bloggers always try to expand our reach as much as possible using different social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Stumbleupon, Google+ etc.
Over the last few months, I have used quite a few Apps to manage all my social media sites with more ease. And here I’m going to list out some of those Apps that are going to help you manage your own social media accounts more easily.
HootSuite is an extremely popular App probably used by millions. With this you can manage and post updates on your regular social media sites like Facebook ( Profile + Fan Page ) , Twitter , LinkedIn , Google+ (Only page) etc. You can also connect your WordPress.com and MySpace accounts.
The only disadvantage about this app is that you cannot post updates on your Google+ profile, only Google+ page is allowed. But it’s still a pretty good app and very easy to use. You just have to add your message and submit it and it will be posted on all your social media sites simultaneously.
It also comes with a url shortening service which will shorten your urls and leave you more room for your messages.
Dlvr.it is another cool app which you can use. Through this you can manage your Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn accounts. Unlike HootSuite, it uses your blog’s RSS Feed to post updates on your social media sites. So, it is an automated service. The popular site Blog Engage uses this app for posting updates on Facebook.
But like HootSuite, it is also very easy to use. You just have to connect your accounts and you don’t have to do anything more. Probably, the biggest disadvantage is that it is automated and it tends to make you look like a robot.
Still, I think it’s a pretty good app.
3. RSS Graffiti
RSS Graffiti is another cool app which you can use. It is already built in with Facebook. You just have to type “rss graffiti” in the Facebook search and you will find the app or you can check their official site rssgraffiti.com.
Currently, around 200K people use their publishing service. Like dlvr.it they also provide automated service connected with your blog’s RSS feed. This app will mainly help you manage your facebook profile and fan pages.
The biggest advantage of using this app is that you can connect multiple RSS Feeds or Atom Feeds with their individual fan pages and also your profile simultaneously. It also has the option of connecting your facebook account with your twitter account. So, basically, it takes care of two of your most favorite social media sites.
This app is probably the best for those who wants to concentrate marketing their content on Facebook. Overall, it is a good app.
TwitterFeed is an app which I used to use when I started blogging a year ago. Like RSS Graffiti and Dlvr.it, it is also provides an automated service using a blog’s RSS Feed. It can help to manage the big three social media sites – Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
The biggest advantage of using this app is that it provides statistics reports for your links. It provides you with the no. of clicks of the link and the number of shares of that link.
Overall, like the rest it’s also a pretty good app.
Whichever app you will use is totally on you. Some prefer the automated service but most don’t like it. They make you look like a bot, but it is easier(my opinion). You don’t have to use all of them. Choose the best one for yourself and leave the others.
Do you have any other apps on mind that you use ? You can add it to my list in the comment section. Also, don’ forget to share your views about the apps I mentioned.
