Get a Hoot from HootSuite

I manage multiple social networking sites, including LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter and I was looking for a quick and easy way to update all three sites.

I tried applications such as FutureTweet, which can help with schedule Tweets to go out at specific time, and it worked well.  However, I knew that there had to be something else out there, and that’s when I discovered HootSuite.

Using HootSuite’s unique social media dashboard, you can schedule updates to Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, WordPress and other social networks via web, desktop or mobile platforms.

Launched in Dec. 2008, HootSuite helps organizations use the social web to launch marketing campaigns, identify and grow audience, and distribute targeted messages across multiple channels.

Companies can work collaboratively, and track campaign results and industry trends to rapidly adjust tactics.

It is also a powerful tool for individual users as well.  I found it to be very user friendly, and a great time saver.

If you want to be active with social media and you don’t have all day, then HootSuite is a great solution.
