Chances are you've heard of HootSuite which is a free social media management dashboard. By downloading the official HootSuite extension you can quickly and easily manage your HootSuite dashboard from the click of a button. This will allow you to publish updates, track activity, and analyze social media results across multiple networks.

TweetDeck allows you to keep track and manage multiple Twitter or Facebook accounts all under one interface. This is perfect for companies or consultants who manage multiple social media accounts and are finding themselves having trouble keeping track of them all. By integrating directly into Google Chrome, you have access to your TweetDeck dashboard quickly and easily.

SocialBro is a new service currently in its beta stage. The point of SocialBro is to manage and analyze your Twitter account. Think of it as a service like Google Analytics except instead of analyzing your web traffic, it analyzes your Twitter account details. A SocialBro account is currently free though they do have paid tiers that provide more features and faster analyzing times. Notable features include insights, analysis of competitors, the ability to monitor a hashtag, and determining the best time to tweet.

While the HootSuite extension above gives you full access to your HootSuite dashboard quickly, the Hootlet only gives you access to the content sharing feature. With this extension installed, you can easily share your own blog post or any other page you desire with the click of a button. It even automatically fills in the webpage name and shortens the link for you. Instead of having to load your whole HootSuite account and fumble through all the options, save valuable time and share content with your social media accounts on the fly!

  • HootSuite is a very useful extension for chrome and so is TweetDeck. I have been making use of social media, document viewer and annotation extensions for chrome and some are pretty amazing.
