I’m a Droid man. My tablet, phone and laptop are pimped out with Droid. Almost daily I search for not just the latest, but coolest, apps. In my searching this week, I came across some really cool websites related to social media. Here I was looking for apps and ran into a lot of web sites. I thought you might want a press, too…
1 - TweetCongress.org Most of you on social media, I have noticed, are also active politically. Punch in your zip code here and get your local representative’s Twitter and contact info… and more.
2 - Jackalopejobs.com Can this be any cooler? Here you search for jobs and then jackalope finds people in your social media networks that already work where you want to apply… to hook you up quicker! Amazing. This is one of my favs.
3 - TwitterCounter Most of us have heard of Tweetreach.com and I love that tool. TwitterCounter is pretty much the same but with more info and projections. I love Twitter analytics… and if you do, too, you will want to add this to your arsenal.
4 - Socialbakers.com Get insight on popular brands and places. Also features social media stats for more than just Twitter… includes Google+.
5 - Social Media Cheat Sheet An article posted on Mashable by Ann Smarty (@seosmarty - she’s pretty nifty), this post on social media cheat sheets is a must have. Ever wonder how people post in bold and italics on Google+? Check this out. And, whoa, a lot more!
6 - stock.xchng The leading FREE stock photo site. Share photos. Find photos to use. Hello! Awesome.
7 - PostPost.com ”Dive into your Twitter timeline without drowning in it.” This site toplines content from the people you follow on Twitter. It is a personal Twitter search engine.
8 - Facebook Calendar This article on socialmediatoday.com by @AllisonnTweets shows you how to make the most of facebook’s new calendar. You’ll use it! And, uh, follow Allison now, too! Yep.
9 - timehop.com What were you doing one year ago in social media? You’ll find out here.
10 - Amplicate.com Find out what brands people love and hate on social media. This site “collects consumer opinions posted on social media, analyzes and compares them to let you know what consumers are saying about products, services, companies and sectors right now on Twitter and Facebook.”
11- HeyOverbey’s Facebook Page How’d that slip in here? Oh, well. Like me on facebook for sweet tips, articles and news in the social media world. I promise I won’t crowd up your timeline!
12 - And, finally, here are 3 social media news sites - apart from those really big guys - that I source a great deal of usable information out of! socialtimes.com and socialfresh.com and thefuturebuzz.com.
