HootSuite Makes Your Professional and Social Networking Life Easier

I have been using HootSuite already for a while, but have never written anything about it.

That’s too bad, since many people could benefit from it. Shame on me to keep this gem a secret 🙂

Why is it a gem?

HootSuite doesn’t only let you monitor your Twitter streams (like Tweetdeck), track clicks, monitor mentions, but also allows posting to different websites at once. It is very flexible: you can choose on the spot which websites to post to and which not.

Why is this handy? Some things you want to share with your personal network, but not with your professional network. Some people have automated links between their Twitter account and their LinkedIn account leading to people who block them since they are not interested in the personal problems of their LinkedIn contacts.

With HootSuite you can easily tackle this problem: for each message you click on the icons of the websites you want it to appear and that’s it.

This saves me a lot of time. And I hope you too!

PS: get your free light version and free updates of the book How to REALLY use LinkedIn (or in Dutch: het boek Hoe LinkedIn nu ECHT gebruiken) with many more tools that can save you time.
