Martin Gysler's insight:
This post is not new, but always useful for many buffer user like me.
Neal Schaffer said: "When a startup is already publishing a blog post about how to hack their app for greater productivity, you know the future is bright ;-)" ... Yes, I totally agree with him!
I use buffer since the beginning and I like it. In this post I found few interesting things, maybe it'll be the same for you.
For anybody who manages a Facebook page, the big challenge has always been doing so from a mobile device... amazing [note mg]
Managing Facebook pages from mobile devices has been a tricky challenge for page admins, but thankfully Facebook has just started testing an app that will make their lives easier. It’s called Facebook Pages Manager and it is available in the app store now for some countries and is rolling out to everyone in the next few days.

That's a must read post, it'll learn you how you will become a Twitter power user! [note Martin Gysler]
CNNFortune reported 100 million Twitter users log in at least once a month. Half of those, 50 million, log in every day. About 55% check in with mobile devices, while about 40% just check in without actually tweeting.
Those numbers are huge for anyone who’s marketing online. But that’s not all.
Thirty-four percent of marketers who use Twitter have generated leads from its use…with 20% of those closing deals.
But how do you take advantage of this growing audience of Twitter consumers? You have to become a power user. So here are 100 proven tips to help you do just that.
And to make it easier to follow along, I’ve broken them up into 10 sections that each contain 10 tips.
Mozilla Firefox is the best web browser ever! It still randomly crashes on me which pisses me off to no end, but even after this it’s still better than Internet Explorer. Buuuuut I’m not here to argue about Browsers (unless you want to of course, just provoke me further in the comments thread and we’ll see where it goes )
Some people call them Plug-ins (which is actually not correct because plugins for Firefox are entirely different and are reserved for programs like Java, Quicktime and Shockwave, just to name a few.)...
seattle-based Mindbloom has made waves with its digital inspiration and productivity web app, adding a gamification element to the niche that was both unique in approach and in accessibility. Now they’ve added a standalone app to its arsenal with Bloom, a free app that gives users a real kickstart in doing what really matters in everyday life. It offers a fun and simple way to transform photos and music into a private or shared digital inspiration. Bloom brings what’s really important in life to the forefront, enabling users to connect better with their lives as a whole as opposed to just their to-do lists. I’ve had a chance to play with the app while it was in testing, and the Mindbloom team definitely are onto something with Bloom...
The number of Facebook applications can seem a little overwhelming at times. While Facebook doesn’t share an exact number, an independent website called AppData monitors trends for over 100,000 Facebook applications, which is a lot to sift through.
As a business, trying to determine which of those apps can help your organization can be daunting. To get you started, here are four essential Facebook apps that allow you to better reach and communicate with your audience, as well as save you time for all those other things you have to do...
With Facebook under pressure regarding privacy concerns, more and more users are becoming concerned about what information third-party sites have access to and how much of it they retain. If you’re one of these users who likes using Facebook and Twitter but prefer to keep your cookies in check, then you may be interested to hear about Disconnect.
The new iOS 5 goes live soon, bringing with it revamped notifications and more than 200 new features for your iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. These are the top ten, and then some more.
Some of these features you already had in your iPhone or iPad. They just came in third-party apps.
If you used apps like the must-have WhatsApp, which allows you to message in an extremely easy way with all kinds of phones for free, you already were enjoying something like iMessage (even while iMessage adds important services, like device-wide conversation synchronization)...
Siri is the most useful thing I’ve seen so far this year.
It is the best example of what the web will be.
Let’s go back.
Siri is the best example. First, it’s not a website. It’s an application you put on your phone (today iPhone, soon others like Android and Blackberry). Second, it isn’t a search engine, those are so 1998. It’s a system that assists you in your life.
If you a webmaster, check out our list of best iPhone apps for webmasters that will help you to check each and everything to make your website up and running while you are on the go.
There are many popular mobiles all around the world and Apple iPhone is still holding the first place because of its crystal clear display, easy availability of millions of useful apps, fast processor, no tensions of viruses and great iOS software that always backed up hardware. There are millions of people using iPhone from all around the world coming from various professions.
The browser extension that stops Facebook social plugins -- including those within iFrames -- from running on sites other than Facebook itself.

It's always great to discover new things all by yourself, but often curated content that's brought to you from links your networks have shared is a much quicker and more efficient way to consume all kinds of news, rather than spending hours browsing all around the web for it.
One of the reasons so many people buy iPads is because content is often tailored to look SO DAMN GOOD on them, an appeal many of our favourite content curation apps have perfected.

An app for consumers to playfully connect with brands. In a thrustworthy and straight forward way.
Martin Gysler's insight:
Mobile App for Brand Lovers
cooala is a mobile App for playful and controlled interaction between brands and their fans - an answer to Facebook from the year 2012.
Young consumers are not easily reached through advertising. Even on social platforms like Facebook, they have little interest in connecting with brands. According to a Forrester Study from 2012, only 6 percent do so the in the USA. Companies are complaining about narrow reach and high advertising budgets on the Zuckerberg platform, users are unsure about their private data and are annoyed by the massive increase in advertising on their Wall. This is exactly where cooala steps in: cooala users discover brands, subscribe to specific content, and benefit from exclusive content and offers from their favorite brands. All while keeping full control of their data.
For the user: Very playful
„What’s cooler?“ is the key question: Gaga or Bieber? FC Bayern Munich or Real Madrid? DC or Quicksilver? Ferrari or Mini? In different product categories, Fans choose their favorite from a suggested pair and thus build their Brand Map. New, cool brands can be explored through the photos and info on the site, and everything can be shared with friends. The best part: Fans only subscribe to exactly the offers that interest them: a VW event, a Stimorol sample, McDonald’s Coupons, or info about new products from Apple. And all of this in one place.
cooala offers its users:a playful way to rate brands and share with friendsthe opportunity to discover thousands of new brands, soon also locallya way to collect their favorite brands in Brandboardsthe ability to subscribe to brands they love, receiving product news, event invitations, samples, coupons, gifts, and more. No spam - only what they’ve subscribed to.Complete control over their contact with companies
For Companies: Market research and accurate Targeting
The platform is also very advantageous for companies: for one, messages, information, and giveaways don’t have to be sent randomly and with high waste. Thanks to cooala, fans can decide themselves exactly what they want to get, and receive only the content they choose - a perfect qualified lead.
Companies therefore communicate with their Fans eye to eye, in common agreeance, and without loss.
Also very interesting: cooala delivers real time market research data about brands and their competitors, for example the coolness factor of a brand, market development compared to the competition, and the wants and needs of the users.
cooala offers companies:Contact with high affinity target groups without waste.An unobtrusive, playful communication channel to existing and new fans.Anonymous market research data about their own brand and those of competitors.Highly efficient tool to launch campaigns easily and quickly with a target oriented approach.
The five cooala partners, all experienced specialists in their fields, are developing the app at full speed. CEO Mike Schwede is confident: “The reactions we’ve seen in young, brand oriented target groups is very positive. They are looking through the Brand Profiles, playing enthusiastically with the App, and are spreading the word through the Share Function.”
iPhone users can download cooala in the Appstore starting today. The Android version of the app is planned for Spring, and the trimmed down Facebook version is currently in development.

Disclaimer: Apple has done such a good job of giving a Siri a persona that many times throughout this article I will refer to Siri as ‘her’ or ‘she’. Thanks for making me think my phone is a person, Apple.
Everyone talks about how important it is to build an iPhone or Android app, but it doesn’t look inexpensive or easy. Until now. I’ve been testing appsbar, a free Web-based app that allows small business owners create their own iOS or Android application.
I found appsbar.com when researching the digital coupon phenomenon (think Groupon and Living Social) and discovered a post by appsbar founder Scott Hirsch, who built the tool, in part, as a do-it-yourself coupon service. From the merchant point of view, the pricing of coupons is expensive. Most business owners considering coupons could benefit from a tool that lets you build it yourself and keep the profit margins higher...

Since the early days, Facebook page owners had the possibility to add a Discussions tab to their Facebook page. At some point, over 55 Million users were using this tab to talk, share their points of view, give feedback, and connect with each other. Then Facebook changed the layout of the pages, which lead to a drop in traffic, but the tab is still widely used today: 22 Million users per month use this tab.
Conscious of those issues, we have built a free Facebook Application called Forum for Pages in order to offer a solution for page owners to keep the discussions on their Facebook pages. The application is easy to use...
Remember life before cellphones? It's hard, because they are so ubiquitous and essential. iCloud marks a similar turning point, a transition from an old way of doing things. It makes computers easy for everyone, by making computing disappear.
Of everything Apple is rolling out today—and its rolling out a Hell of a lot of stuff—there is no bigger deal than iCloud. Forget Siri or Find my Phone or Notifications or any of the other numerous updates and enhancements that iOS 5 brings to the party...

It’s just over 3 months since Google dropped the bombshell that it was launching their own social network and inevitably the attention immediately switched to Facebook to see what they would do in counter the launch. Facebook were initially quiet but they went in to their famous “Lockdown” phase and started rolling out a whole host of new features many of which were lightly “inspired” by Google +. If anything the launch by Google seems to have helped accelerate the development cycle at Facebook with the main beneficiaries being the end users who are getting an improved service. Whatever way you look at it and despite the fact that Facebook were working on some of this stuff before anyway you can’t but be impressed at the staggering response to the launch of Google + by Facebook…

NewsMix launched its Facebook app today, which will allow people to follow posts from their fan pages in one, consolidated digital magazine.
You know the saying “fall through the cracks?” Well, Facebook’s news feed is a content chasm. Interesting posts from your liked pages can fall to the bottom and are often ignored, even though the content might be good. NewsMix takes your liked pages, whether they are news-oriented or not, and forms them into your own curated magazine within Facebook.
“I really think Facebook should fix the problem of … the news feed,” Francois Bochatay, chief executive of NewsMix’s parent company Sobees, told VentureBeat. “What we tried to fix is getting the news in one place. There should be another place for the friends.”...
