Are you one of those people that have different social media accounts that can sometimes be too overwhelming to check? If you answered yes, then this is the blog for you!

Many people/business have various Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Linkedin, FourSquare, and other accounts for their business or personal use. With so many accounts for a business or a person to take on, it can get very frustrating. To solve this problem I want to introduce Social Media Platforms. Platforms are designed to take on multiple social media sites combined in one easy website or app.

These platform sites give people the opportunity to not only check different sites in one, but also cut the time in switching from one site to the next. The top 5 social media platforms that are well known to use are:

  • Flipboard is a beautifully designed app that is best to use on an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or even an Android. This app gives a new meaning to multiple tasking.

With a magazine outline, countless layouts of content, and a smooth interface, this app is one of the best to manage for numerous accounts.

And the best part about this app is that it is free for users!

  • Glossi is a more visually appealing website that fits more to a person’s style.  The website is amazing and well-executed to make sure people are integrated by their layout, which a person can pick based off of their preference. When you first get on the website you have to request to be a part of Glossi. Then Glossi will get back to you with the request. It doesn’t take that long for them to respond back.

The cool thing about this app is that with the different social medias tied into this one app, it has diversity with each site. So Facebook will be designed differently from your Twitter, and you can create how you want it to look.  The cost is free!

  • RebelMouse is of the latest platforms to make their way onto the scene. For right now this platform only has Twitter and Facebook, but once it gets established, it will have more sites within a few short weeks; others social media sites should be up and running.

The app is more hands on and can be customizes to however a person wants their RebelMouse to be. The cost of the basic version is free; however if one wanted to have their own URL, it would only cost three dollars a month.

  • Hootsuite is created for business or personal use. Like the other platforms, this media site gives the choice of using several different tools to create the perfect profile.

At first sight the dashboard or homepage can be overpowering, but once you get the hang of it, it can be fairly easy to use. The cost of the basic interaction with the 5 social media sites and the two RSS feeds are free. Nevertheless, with the pro account and unlimited social profiles, it will cost 9.99 a month.

  • was discovered later on the down the line. This platform by far is one of the most experienced sites. You can have videos, music, photos, and updates on 35 different sites. It is unique and very convenient if one is running a larger business.

For a basic account, the cost will be only 20 dollars a year. With 222 different fonts and 7 layouts, you can’t go wrong with this price.

So now that you know a little bit more about social media platforms, it will be very beneficial to get started. Any of these websites will relieve stress, help with time, and help a business become more knowledgeable about the different social media sites. So sign up today and have your problems go away!
