Social Media Networks

Page history last edited by Phil Bradley 1 year, 2 months ago

There are of course a great many social media networks - the obvious examples are Facebook and Twitter. However, there's also Pinterest, Reddit, Tumblr and a host of others. The videos on this page will look at some of the social networks available and the tools to access them. 

 

Hootsuite

With millions of users and thousands of tweets per second, Twitter is one of the giants of social networking.  However, the Twitter interface at http://www.twitter.com is not very impressive - in fact if you just looked at that it would probably put you off for life! This is where Twitter clients come in, which make the process of following people, searching for information, slicing it into different categories and viewing content  so much easier. Hootsuite at https://hootsuite.com/ is an excellent product, and it's the one that I use on a daily, even hourly basis. You can create an account on the site and use it directly from your browser, but of course, there are the apps to consider. 

If you want to watch this video directly on YouTube it's available at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9MX6eQpSGpo 

If you want to download and use the app it's available at

Reddit

Reddit is an entertainment, social news networking service, and news website. Reddit's registered community members can submit content, such as text posts or direct links, and it's an excellent tool to keep up to date with what is happening in the world. It refers to itself as 'the front page of the Internet'. Whatever your interests, either professional or personal, you will find information on Reddit that will be of interest to you.
