Default Hotsuite

Anybody using this app. I want to make getting my info on the various social networks easier. I downlaoded this app, and I have not used it much. I find out why this morning. Trying to add my google page...worked on it for about 1/2 hour and gave up.
Anybody know of an app that will allow me to downlaod to variosu social networks all at once, and is user friendly.

We tried using all the different social medias, it just got to be to much trying to update them all so we decided to use just FB.

Yeah, using all of them is too much for me too. Hotsuite is supposed to make it easy...post to all at once. But, just trying to figure out how to work it is too much work.

Mass posting. I wouldn't do it. The main point about social media is personal interaction. Find the social networks that interest you the most and be just there. For me it's daily Facebook, some twitter and Linkedin.

What exactly are you planning to post? Most social media apps have the option to share on various platforms; e.g. Post a photo on Instagram and you have the option to share it on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

i started using hoot suite again and like it. cant post videos or multiple pictures though. i can post to my personal fb page, business page, friend page, linked in, twitter and instagram..which instagram only partially works....i wouldnt worry about it seeming impersonal as no one is really seeing them all.... 1000 people like my business page and only 100 or so actually see the posts. fb has made it to where you need to pay for people to see you...stupid but true...

I've used Hootsuite before and it is nice but you quickly realize that it can be a lot of work. It does allow you to interact with the people who reply to your posts from one application, which is useful. But if you get a lot of activity then it just becomes time consuming.

A like doesn't mean they are following your page, so they won't see it. Also, FB prioritizes sources that you interact with (comments/likes/shares).

I clicked on this thread thinking it was going to be about little old lady customers who are always cold so they turn up the thermostat so high the paint is in danger of boiling.

Do these online search engines and social media sites really provide any advantage for local businesses, like small paint companies, who typically reach out to their local customer base by referral or conventional advertising means?

I mean, I get the whole broad reach advantage of social media for the local Widget shop who has gained a following in Timbuktu. But are there that many homeowners reaching out to social media for their painting needs, that an app like Hootsuite is absolutely necessary for the local painter to have, in order to mange the over whelming influx of requests?

Or, is it just fun to participate in social media and Hootsuite helps to organize all of the social pleasure, like an orderly box of mixed chocolates?
