Post 23 of 23 things! Yay, I’ve made it!!!!!
Ok, back to work….
I have already been using Hootsuite to pre-schedule Facebook and Twitter posts for our library account. Sometime sit is easier to post directly to each site, but if it’s going to be a busy period, if I’m going away or if there is an event coming up that I want to release bit by bit, Hootsuite is perfect. I also used it to help me manage the #Chartership chat on Twitter last month, and it certainly helped me to keep up with the threads of conversation!
For this exercise I thought I’d try out Buffer and find out a) what it is and b) how I could use it.
Buffer seems to work in a similar way to Hootsuite, although looks cleaner and simpler to use. I have decided to use it for my own library related accounts., i.e. my Twitter account (@amystraker) and the Chartership group that I set up on Facebook. This way I can more easily / speedily share information that I think will help people working towards #Chartership without having to remember to post to both sites. I am a huge fan of using technology to make life easier (and it can very easily go the other way!) -so it’s a thumbs up to Buffer from me!
