Description

Why not organize your social media accounts in one place on your computer, where you can see all of them at a glance, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and your Youtube videos.

By putting each of your social media platforms into columns (streams) using a program called Hootsuite you can do that. Then you can quickly interact with your connections, keep your most important contacts right where you can see their comments, all from one convenient location. You can even share content you find on the Internet using their Hootlet browser tool.

Although Hootsuite may seem daunting at first glance, it can be set up to monitor as little or as much as you need. In just minutes a day, you can streamline your social media tasks.

Who is the target audience?
  • If you are using social media to some extent, but find it difficult to keep up with it all, you will appreciate the flexibility of using Hootsuite.
