If you are into social media (which you should be in my opinion), you need Hoot Suite. Seriously.
Hoot Suite helps you manage all of your social media accounts from one place, and it has a host of useful features, including:
– The ability to schedule tweets
– Easy updates on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook–all from one page
– The ability to shorten URLs without leaving the page
– Auto complete on your @usernames once you have used them before (I think this may be my fave feature)
– Statistics on how many people click through on the URLs you tweet. And yes–I’m serious!
I tried TweetDeck before, and while I think it looks much better (very slick interface), it is more confusing. I accidentally sent an update meant for Twitter to all of my social media accounts….
If you are looking for a simple way to manage your social media without a big learning curve–this is it. I haven’t used the app yet–but there is one available for the iPhone as well. Check it out and you will really be glad you did! No more multiple log-ins and no more time suck. Do it all quick and easy.
I’m loving it!
