How to join the social media dots

If you’re on LinkedIn, Facebooking, Tweeting, YouTubing, Blogging and Flickring, it’s a time-consuming task to post the same update individually across a number of social media platforms.

To help you keep all your social networks up-to-speed with your latest thoughts, views and insights there are a number of tools that allow you to share one update or post on several social media sites.

Which is the right sharing tool for you?

Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, LinkedIn, Google+, Foursquare users

For mainstream users, Tweetdeck is a popular choice.

Covering these platforms, it’s quick and simple to make your updates. Be mindful that you are sharing the right sort of information with the appropriate network, however (you may not want to update LinkedIn at the same time as Facebook as the subject matter may be inappropriate for both). 


Explore what’s right for you

These tools are just the tip of the social media iceberg. As smartphones and apps evolve, so too does the technology which can help you share updates and discussions.

Listen out for what your peers are doing, read the Internet, listen to the news. Social media isn’t going anywhere, so make sure you stay on top of the technology to help you make the most of your online reputation.
