There are many great tools we use in social media but 2 I find to be useful and easy are TweetDeck and the everyday camera. TweetDeck is a social media dashboard application for management of Twitter accounts. TweetDeck was launched in 2008 and aquired by Twitter in 2011. TweetDeck gives you a dashboard that organizes and displays separate columns of activity from your Twitter accounts. Originally TweetDeck could also be used for sites such as Facebook, Myspace Foursquare, Google Buzz( discontinued 2011)and LinkedIn. In 2013 TweetDeck stopped supporting Facebook and stopped supporting the other social media sites in 2011. If you are a business or a regular social media user who has multiple accounts TweetDeck is for you.
The camera is a great invention. It helps us capture stories with our photos and videos. These stories really needed when doing event blogging. Instagram and Snapchat are sites the picture-based so the camera would be a must. On the sites Facebook, Twitter, Myspace and LinkedIN the camera is not need but it enhances the social media experience. I believe the camera is the most important tool in social media. Without the camera it would be hard for people to know who exactly they are talking to. This is especially important when interacting on dating social media sites.
Twitter is made extremely easier to manage with the help of numerous tools such as TweetDeek and Hootsuite but it also has other internal tools to help your efforts while on twitter. 2 internal tools I feel that are great for Twitter are the Twitter Advanced Search and Twitscoop. The Twitter Advanced Search option is the best way to narrow tweets about a targeted topic. Twitscoop lets you search and follow what’s buzzing on Twitter in real time. Out of the two internal tools I like the Twitscoop best because it lets you see what multiple people are talking about in real-time and for me that real-time connection is feels more authentic.These are my thoughts on these tools, feel free to tell me what yours are or your opinion on Twitscoop, Twitter Advance Search, TweetDeck or the camera.
