Here are cool things I did TODAY thanks to recent Scoop.it revisions:
* Changed Design Revolution Template: http://www.scoop.it/t/design-revolution.
* Added a subscription form to Design Revolution.
* Changed Design Revolution "SEO Boost".
* Changed Social Shares for Profile & my 10 feeds (easily adaptable to each feed so can be selective with what Twitter / Facebook and G+ pages are connected).
New tools are amazing. What about you? What have you been playing with on the new Scoop.it?
Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn can be found in the majority of social media management apps. It is with Google+ that things get a little bit more complicated: very few social media tools support it due to some technical challenges.
However, most social media managers would prefer a solution that would allow them posting to all social networks in one place, Google+ including.
In this post, you’ll find reference to all tools that are to date integrated with Google+. We’ll bring small business editions to a special focus and review social tools that (1) support Google+ and (2) the ones you can use for free or under $10 a month.
I'm not saying tools are a must but if used properly, social media apps can be great enhancers to your social networking endeavors, especially one that involves images and graphics like Pinterest.
Pinterest is definitely a fantastic tool for brands focused on the visual side of things.
With that said, without apps and tools, it can be difficult to leverage the social network properly. Let Wong Ching Ya help you with that. She features an excellent list in this article.
"Content Curation, the act of discovering and presenting digital content, is becoming increasingly popular among publishers and marketers.

There are several content curation services that allow you to create online magazines with content mash-up from websites, blogs, RSS feeds, social media, and other online sources.
I have compiled a list of 10 free content curation sites that you can use to deliver content to your audience creating your own digital magazine and newspaper. It is a very effective way to get the most out of your content and attract new audiences."
Think you might be followed by some not-so-legit Twitter accounts? There’s a new app that will tell you how many of your followers are fakes – or bots – and how many are living, breathing people eagerly awaiting your next pearls of wisdom.
Following closely on the heels of a Twitter study that showed how deviously simple (and cheap) it is to buy Twitter followers, the new app called Fakers from Status People tells you how many of your followers are likely fake accounts set up for one nefarious scam or another.
Social media is fun but can be very time consuming. Learning ways to maximize each of your social media efforts will make everything you do more successful. Keep in mind that everyone should create their own special social media cocktail that will help them meet their goals, reach their audience and have more fun!
Social media is not rocket science, however there are a few tricks and tips that can make things really start to hum for you.
