List of key links to social media tools at your fingertips.

Looking for a social media links and tools at your finger tips. Here is my list of key links and tools to social media  at your fingertips. 

This blog is called  CMOguidetosocialmedia.wordpress.com  and now I have listed all my top links that I use all the time to the right.  It is a place for me to have them all in one place, so it is also a benefit for you, since there are far to many for me to remember.

None of these are endorsements, these are just links I like to sites that put my social media tools be at my fingertips.  Some of these links I use all the time, some are just bookmarks because I like the concept and want to be able to remember them or use them at a future date.

TwittURLy top twitter links real time is a good find.

TwittURLy.com which shows top twitters in real time is another good find and point of data that any CMO will want to access. It says : “We track and rank what URLs people are talking about on Twitter”.
I also like that it breaks it into : Everything, news only, pics only, and video only.  It has a top 100 that they show and you can make your own top 100 to follow those you are interested in.  I also like that you can look up a profile on someone on twitter about whom you are reading.

The news tab  has a lot of interesting tweets on whats going on in social media land, which is very interesting to read.

Twitscoop combines, search, hot trends and buzz

I came across  www.Twitscoop.com while looking for a better search function than www.search.twitter.com .

It combines the best of many worlds: search, trends and buzz into one nice package.  They say it is a way of staying on top of Twitter, or what ever that means these days. Basically it is a gateway to Twitter and you really need to have a gateway.  If not, Twitters’ own functionality is very poor.

Twitscoop allows you to receive and send tweets, and find friends instantly, without reloading your page.  It also allows search and follow of what’s buzzing on twitter in real-time.

Their pitch is: “Never miss the buzz.  Watch the trends live on the cloud. Tweet from your account.  Twitpic images on the fly. Preview Twitpic images directly from Twitscoop. Track bit.ly stats.  Check bit.ly stats in real-time.”

The layout is very friendly for you non techy CMO types. So give it a try.

Using Bit.ly to shorten, share and track links.

Bit.ly

Bit.ly

Bit.ly is a way to do many things that normal twitter won’t allow.  http://www.Bit.ly   shortens your long URLs on Twitter but also shares links so each time you point to that page it is the same Bit.ly link code. I also like to check and see hits and data that the website provides on twitter tweets and what type of response or clicks I got.

I use it from tweetdeck, and after it shortens the link and it is twittered, I can go back and look at the hits, what country, time and many other tracking data that they provide for free.  It gives me a real gage as to what the results are of each tweet.

Also if you do not want others to see your metrics you have to turn the open source off, if not everyone can see how many hits you get.
