The Geek Girl Report: Like, Tweet, and Reblog All From One Place- The Best Social Media Aggregators

Facebook. Twitter. Google Plus. Instagram. LinkedIn. These days, having just one social media account doesn’t cut it anymore. If you’re like most people, you’ve got multiple social media accounts to your name. But checking all these various sites and individual apps every day can be pretty time-consuming, especially if you’re a business with a presence on various social media outlets. Wouldn’t it be easier and much more convenient to have all your social media in just one place?  It’s possible, if you have a social media aggregator. Here’s just a few of the most popular ones out there.

TweetDeck

Out of all the social media aggregators out there, the one you’ve likely heard the most about is TweetDeck. TweetDeck took all of the major social media outlets, like Facebook, Google Plus and obviously Twitter, and condensed them all down into a convenient and highly-customizable application. However, since it was bought outright by Twitter, it’s become a Twitter-exclusive affair. Still, if you have multiple Twitter accounts to keep an eye on, you can’t get much better than TweetDeck. TweetDeck is available for free

HootSuite

HootSuite is quickly becoming one of the most popular business-based social media aggregators, and it’s easy to see why. It allows you and your team to keep tabs on all the major social media outlets and lets any team member respond to any tweet or post all from a single dashboard. HootSuite also saves you time on social media with the ability to schedule posts, save responses for future use, and perform bulk updates of all your social media sites at once. The most basic version of HootSuite is free and allows you to combine 5 social media accounts and 2 RSS feeds. The PRO version costs $8.99 a month and allows you to combine unlimited social media profiles and RSS feeds, as well as access to Google Analytics and Facebook Insights.

RebelMouse

Ever wonder how newsrooms keep track of all their social media? Many of them, like PBS, ESPN and The Wall Street Journal, use an aggregator called RebelMouse to keep up with all their social media news.  RebelMouse pulls in streams from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and more and displays them all on your very own webpage. You can even filter what shows up on your page by hashtags or favorites or pretty mush any criteria you see fit. RebelMouse’s basic service is free, but if you want to use your own URL, it’ll be $3 a month, and $3 a week for corporate customers.

Flipboard

Think of Flipboard as your own personal social media magazine. This cleverly designed app pulls the content form all your favorite social media sites, as well as sites like Instagram, Tumblr, YouTube, and the like. Then, it condenses it down to a magazine-style format that you can flip through at your leisure. It’s not quite as interactive as some of the other aggregators, but if you have a lot of blogs and pictures you like to check out on a daily basis, this one is definitely worth a look. Flipboard is completely free to download.
