Social Media Books and Tips

Chrome Extensions for Efficient Online Social Marketing

1. AddThis - This service lets you set up your profile with the Social Media services you use and update them at a single time. This is great for hubpage writers, online marketers and anyone that needs to maintain many different accounts but with a similar message that needs to be sent to each.

2. ChromeSEO - This Chrome extension provides lots of details about a webpage and its rankings in many different sites. The tool looks at a website as a whole and an individual page to report all of the details you may be interested to know quickly about your website, blog, or hubpage articles you are promoting.

3. StumbleUpon - The StumbleUpon app is a great way to manage your individual StumbleUpon account for capturing interesting sites you may find while doing research as well as a way to promote your own content to your followers and friends on StumbleUpon. The up and down thumbs are in the little tool bar that slide down when you select the extensions tab. There is also the ability to quickly identify reviews of sites and look into your personal favorites.

4. Tweet Deck - This chrome extension helps you stay connected to what is happening right now through your browser. View trending topics, search through twitter users and many other features to support your appetite for tweets.

5. Facebook for Google Chrome - Managing facebook posts from an extension allows you to keep track of conversations on posts you make easily.

6. Cooliris - A favorite browser extension of mine Cooliris isn't directly related to social media marketing, but it is an excellent way to look for cool pictures out on the web as well as find interesting content surrounding a specific topic. If you enjoy writing about the arts or popular culture this app is an excellent way to find youtube videos or other interesting pieces of content you can link to in your blog or hubpage articles.

7. Awesome Screenshot: Capture & Annotate This screenshot chrome extension is just great. You select the extension and it brings up a crop tool that allows you to select a specific area on a screen to make an image or you can just select to get a screenshot of the whole screen. Set up where you want to save the image and continue your browsing. This is an execellent extension for anyone that regularly needs to capture the screen they are working on or if you need to get images to use from websites for basic presentations of other activities you should check it out.
