I have used a couple social media applications such as Tweetdeck and Filpboard on the iPad. I am not a fan of Tweetdeck because it only handles Twitter and Filpboard for the iPad. However I find that is more for casual reading verses a hard working social media tool. Then I came across Hootsuite.com and found a tool that I like and can and will use.
Hootsuite is a tool that lets me track all my social media accounts and with the free account I can have up to 5 of each type of social network account that I can have all in one place. I am starting my track other social media accounts for work and this web application allows me to do just that. You can upgrade your account for a reasonable monthly fee and add unlimited accounts. From a business standpoint this is a huge deal. I only have a few accounts I am working with now and until I found this site was wasting time logging in and out of accounts on all the different sites.
Not only can I see them all but I can publish, schedule posts and see analytics for my accounts among other things. What a time saver. I love this thing. I also like that I can add my WordPress blog as well. I have never seen a tool for social media add the blog aspect in before, but that could have just been me.
The only thing I do not like about Hootsuite.com is the application for the iPad. It only has access for Twitter and Facebook. I wish it were the same as the web version. So if anyone from Hootsuite.com sees this I hope you take this and do something about the iPad application.
