Social Media Management Using Hootsuite

As a Social Media Manager/Marketer I get asked a lot, "what's my favorite platform for updating my own accounts and my clients social media sites."

There are many resources available online but one of my favorites is Hootsuite. Make it easy on yourself. Post regularly to your Facebook profile page, Facebook Fan Page and to your LinkedIn account all from one location. The separate streams make it real easy to track what's going on.

Hootsuite is free to use unless you choose their upgrade package. The upgrade is very affordable and very handy if you have multiple clients or sites to manage. It doesn't matter if you are a professional in the social media field or a part-time blogger who has a Facebook page. Hootsuite can make your life easier and help you extend your reach into the blogosphere. You can schedule your Tweets and Facebook status updates ahead of time making your social media life more manageable.
