5 Epic Chrome Extensions To Make Social Media A Breeze
Are you like me and are constantly flicking through tabs (or having 15 open like I do now), copying and pasting things for social media posts and generally just wasting time? Well, on the bright side I have found some awesome Google Chrome extensions to help you, a Social Media Whizz, organize yourself and your browser whilst also making your social media management a little bit easier.
I’m not usually a fan of Hootsuite because I find it a little confusing, however, Hootlet is such a handy extension to have. It makes Hootsuite a little simpler. It’s pretty awesome because it gives you the option to share any web page (yes, like lots of extensions) BUT it also fills in the social media post with the page title and the link. Cool right?! No more copying and pasting of page titles for me!
2. Rite Tag
Have you ever wondered whether a hashtag is getting the most engage right now as you post? We all have let’s not lie. Rite Tag lets you do just that. It tells you what hashtags are getting the most clickthroughs, suggests images or GIFs that will be relevant and it also lets you post emoji’s directly from the desktop. Again, no more copying and pasting, how amazing is that? If that’s not enough, Rite Tag also gives you a gallery of influencers that are relevant to your post that you can tag, how awesome! Rite Tag is a perfect all rounder and it integrates with TweetDeck, Hootsuite, Buffer and more.
3. Check My Links
We all know the feeling when you publish an awesome post and someone just replies with “there’s a broken link in paragraph X, Y and Z” and you just facepalm before rushing to fix it. Well, what if I told you there’s an app for that! Check My Links does as it says on the tin, checks your links for you to make sure there are no embarrassing slip-ups. Saves time off your day and you know you won’t have to worry about broken links. Also a handy tool for web designers and developers.
The Bitly extension does as you expect, shortens links, but it also has built-in analytics, plus you can add it to a bundle with similar links. It’s great for organization and you can see when your links are getting clicked and which are the most popular all in one simple extension.
5. One Tab
Saving the best ’til last, we have the amazing One Tab. As I stated above, I have a really bad habit… Having millions of tabs open. I do this because I, like most social media marketers, spend a lot of time scouring the web for content to post. Sometimes I get engrossed in one article, remember I have another task and forget about it all together. One Tab allows me when I finally realise, to press the on tab button and it closes them all into one tab which allows you to sift through the pages afterwards when you’re finished. It keeps your browser much more organized as it stops tabs getting forgotten and it also saves browser memory (up to 95%), so you have a faster browsing experience.
