Manage Social Accounts Using HootSuite #1

The increasing number of social media websites makes it harder for social media experts to manage all their social accounts, especially when social media is only one part of the entire SEO process.

Thus, there are multiple third-party applications that help you handle all your accounts easily from one place. Some of these applications are desktop-based and others are web-based.

The HootSuite application provides comprehensive features for managing social accounts from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. The free package allows you to have up to five free social accounts.
