One of the features that Google+ has recently given Community Managers is the ability to pin posts to the top of the community stream, and now that capability has been added to both iOS and Android device apps.
Over the weekend, Google released a nice little update to the iOS version of the Google+ mobile app, and it included quite a few improvements, both documented and undocumented.
First, the update stated that...
Facebook has brought some much-needed functionality to the iPhone: post and comment editing! According to today's update, Facebook users can now edit their posts and comments, and tap to see their changes.
The update also gives users the option to insert a photo as part of a comment on a post from their mobile phone.
Additionally, the update includes:
Buffer is one of those apps that can really help you keep on top of your social media activity. I recommend it regularly to businesses and bloggers, as it allows them to set up a schedule for when they want to tweet or post, and then just add new shares to their queue.
But when it comes to engaging with people and influencers on Twitter, Buffer has never been a good choice. You'd have to know the Twitter handle of someone in order to mention them in a Tweet shared via Buffer.
We all spend time using Facebook on our phones, and sometimes we find pieces of content that would be great to share to our Facebook Page. Here's how.
Like so many other apps, HootSuite for Facebook & Twitter has been updated to be fully compatible with iOS7. With the upgrade comes a complete facelift, icon included, to bring a great new look to the social media management app. This has become, without a doubt, one of my favorite apps to use, and has completely replaced the native Twitter app for me.
LinkedIn Endorsements, the often maligned crowdsourced Skills & Expertise within the professional social network, is now available within the LinkedIn mobile app. With today's update, LinkedIn members can now view their top skill endorsements on their mobile profile, as well as accept and grant endorsements from and for other members.
HootSuite is a tool for social media management that we've talked about and referenced many times. I am a Certified HootSuite Solution Pro, which means that I have been trained on not only how to use HootSuite, but how to help business owners understand how they can use HootSuite to manage and monitor their social media accounts.
Google updated the Google+ app, and there was much rejoicing.
UPDATE: iOS App update released 8/16 at 6:15pm EST. The update did not include Page switching.
