There’s no way I’d be able to keep up with GPlus, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, blogging, and Instagram without using a third party service like HootSuite. I recently decided to pay for the HootSuite Premium account which lets me post to all my networks at once and also view all the feeds on one site. I have tons of pages and accounts I manage. If I visited each account and posted information, I’d spend hours online. Try the free version of HootSuite, which allows you to post RSS feeds regularly, schedule posts later, and view your accounts in columns.

Others recommend services like http://ifttt.com and Tweetdeck to manage your time on multiple social networks.

All these services have free mobile apps, extensions, and bookmarklets. Below, is what my Hootsuite looks like.
