Social media is a huge part of blogging. Social media can also be a huge time waster. There are days when I just need to simply post something on my Facebook page but before I know it, I’m in the middle of a heated Facebook post on a friend of a friend’s page. To increase productivity and spend less wasted time on social media, there are several apps that can help you be more productive.
The Latergram.me app is a great way to schedule Instagram posts and manage multiple Instagram accounts within the app. For me, this helps me space our my Instagram posts so they are posted on a regular schedule. It is also helpful for me to type out long descriptions on my computer keyboard rather than typing on my phone’s keyboard. Latergram.me doesn’t automatically post your instagram photos. You will get a notification on your device to remind you and guide you through the posting process. The first 30 scheduled posts are free for the month. You can get an additional 10 posts per month by signing up for Latergram.me here.
Hootsuite is my favorite app for scheduling Twitter posts, retweets, and saving hashtag streams like the #VZWBuzz stream. This way I can quickly find the information that I want to share with my readers. If you participate in Twitter parties, it is also an easy way to follow the host of the party as well as the party hashtag by easily just switching tabs, which is more robust than the native Twitter app.
Facebook Pages Manager
The Facebook Pages Manager is a must have app if you run a Facebook Page. If you don’t want to get sucked into the rest of the Facebook world, you can use the app to see what is going on at your page, schedule posts, make comments, see new followers, insights, etc.
