Few years ago before acquired by Twitter, TweetDeck was the king of desktop-based social media app. It can’t only handle Twitter but also Facebook. You can post the same status to your Twitter and Facebook account with TweetDeck at a single click.
Then there’s Hootsuite, another cross-platform social media management tool with the same capability to update the same post to multiple social media accounts.
While TweetDeck is now limited to Twitter, you can still use Hootsuite to update a status to all social media platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn. A social media tool with the capability to post to multiple platforms at once is very helpful if you are working at an agency firm and responsible to handle a (or more) certain brand. This can help you save time and be more productive since you can do more tasks within a day.
If you are looking for this kind of tool, here is the list you can pick.
Hootsuite is the first choice if you want to work efficiently by posting the same status to all social media platforms you have at once. This tool has been around for years since Facebook and Twitter started to grow. Today, there are 7 social media platforms (and blog) that are supported by Hootsuite starting from Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, WordPress and YouTube.
