  • Hootsuite – A full-featured Twitter client that also allows posting to Facebook Pages, LinkedIn, and WordPress. Includes analytics and scheduling options.
  • Seesmic – Available on nearly every mobile platform in existence (yes even Blackberry & Windows Phone 7), Seesmic supports simultaneous messaging to MySpace, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Flickr, Blogger, and many more.
  • Tweetdeck – A popular Twitter client around the web, Tweetdeck also supports simultaneous messaging and account management. Not to mention the customization settings in this app are deep!

Social Network Dos and Don’ts

As with all great power, there are great responsibilities. Now that you’re aware of multiple ways to talk about your new project, event, app, or whatever it is you’re sharing, try not to avoid abusing your listeners with these simple tips:

  • Mix up your messages. Give another perspective to your content on Facebook rather than the same headline you put on Twitter.
  • Don’t spam every social network with the same thing. My tumblr sees different content than SheGeeks. Let people see other sides of you.
  • Don’t do too much. Don’t overwhelm yourself with all these networks. Pick two networks that you love engaging with and make time for the others when you have it.

    Good post.

    It’s interesting. You build and communicate in relationships differently on each network you’re a part of, most times it doesn’t make sense to update simultaneously because of that. It’s a quick way to lose what ever shred of sincerity or uniqueness we have when communicating electronically. It’s far less meaningful when all of your messages take on a perceived ‘automated’ dissemination.

    At the end of the day it really is matter of how you finesse the tools. I used to have an app that posted all of my Tweets to my Facebook wall. After a while and comments by friends I realized it wasn’t that great of a look. I opted for ‘selective tweets’ and it’s worked out much better.

    I think the important thing to remember if we’re really concerned about the info we put out and the manner in which we release it, is that an assembly line approach to being ‘social’ defeats the purpose.

    Yes tools like these can make life much easier when it comes to posting to multiple accounts but they must be used with care. You don’t want your every tweet showing up on FaceBook for example as many of them only have relevance on Twitter. So use the tools out there you like but do so wisely or you’ll soon make your posts much less effective. You don’t want people thinking that all your social sites and blogs always show the same posts.
