If you asked me what my favourite social media tool was a year ago or even six month ago I would have answered very differently. I am using social media in a very different way as I venture from personal use to professional use.
Pintrest. What girl wouldn’t love Pintrest? My first encounter with Pintrest was overwhelming to say the least, like a kid in a candy store. That quickly changed, as a graphic designer I just gained millions of mentors.
I have recently discovered Hootsuite and I am a big fan. I’ve been a bit of a scatter brains these days so being able to see the activity of Facebook and Twitter in one spot is my kind of thing. And AutoSchedule is a great tool for getting the word out.
Google Alert and Twitter are news sources that I like and use the most. I set the parameters of what I am looking for and I customize to suite my personal and professional needs. There is so much noise out there, with Google Alerts and Twitter I get exactly what I want. Definitely helps with the scatter brains issue.
I’m learning that social media is more than keeping in touch with friends on Facebook, social media is being used by many different people, for many different reasons, in many different ways and I am finding out just how to make social media work for me.
