Welcome to our weekly round-up of the social media tools and platforms that you’ll want to add to your watch list. This week kicks off with some Facebook goodies, as well as a nifty new tool for Google+ that allows you to track your follower history.
Let’s get started.
1. Link your WordPress blog to your Facebook page in one click with PagePressApp.com.
Here’s a tool that does what it says!
2. Give your Facebook page a fancy contact form tab thanks to My.Contact.com.
Fancy is probably the wrong word, so we’ll go with nice ‘n easy. There are free and premium versions of this app, both of which are worth checking out.
3. Track your Google+ follower history with CircleCount.com.
The premise behind this one is pretty simple—it will tell you how many Google+ “circles” you’re in. Why does this matter? Well, for one, it gives you an indication of how many people are potentially exposed to your content.
4. Fire up your real-time engagement capabilities with ThisMoment.com.
The team behind ThisMoment calls this a “Distribution Engagement Channel” which pulls in content from your channels and gives it greater visibility. For lack of a better phrase, this provides “targeted automation” for your content.
5. A new twist on email delivered by ZeroMail.com.
This is billed as an “email assistant” and plugs into major services like Gmail and Yahoo. It also acts as an incoming mail aggregator, bringing in messages from LinkedIn, Facebook, Quora, and others. Could this be the solution we’ve all been praying for? A one-time fee of $100 will help, and perhaps hinder, that decision-making process.
