Through the content curation and research that I undertake, I frequently come across some really neat tools.  Some have potentially immeasurable benefits for our social media businesses; some are just plain fun!  I like to share some of my favorites every so often.  Here are a few, in no specific order:

Online-Convert application home page screen shot

Online-Convert:  This is an easy to use free online tool for converting any audio, video, document, image, ebook or archive format.  My business necessitates frequent use of the service this site offers.  I really love it, and I’m sure you will too!

Screenleap home page screen shot

Screenleap:  Screenleap is a free app that allows us to share our computer screens with anyone we want.  It is a relatively new service, with more functionality promised for future upgrades.  Via a simple emailed code, or a few other easy options, our screens can be shared with other computers, tablets, and even smart phones.  Although currently there is no interactive functionality, I have found that mirroring my screen to share with select others on occasion has been very helpful when discussing things like ongoing projects.

GoBigg home page screen shot

GoBiggOur business cards and messages can easily become cluttered by individually listing the links to all the social media platforms on which we maintain a presence.  GoBigg offers a wonderful solution to this quandary.  It is a free social media portal where users who sign up for a page can list all their links and contact information in one spot.  Hence, the only URL users need to pass along is the one to their individual home pages on GoBigg.  If interested people visit those pages they are presented with clickable links to every one of the users’ social media platforms, as well as their favorite bookmarks, photos, videos, people and places.  GoBigg is a really convenient application!  I find that it gets a lot of positive feedback from the contacts to whom I distribute my URL.
