Reasons To Be Cheerful – Links

Social Media & Internet - Reasons To Be CheerfulWe’re long overdue for a dose of cheer.  Here are links to some of the online gems we are enjoying and exploring right now.

Pinterest is one of the fastest growing social networks right now.  It allows you to pin, organise and share images online.  It is very visually stimulating and fun.  Watch this space for a more in depth post all about Pinterest and feel free to follow me there.

We’ve been exploring online tools that allowyou to create simple graphics.  We like Gimp, Aviary and Pixlr – there’s also “lite” version of Photoshop if you can find it.

Edge Rank Checker is a tool that allows you track the effectiveness of your Facebook pages but beware – it takes ages to generate your reports and pages with low fan counts will be skewed.

Mobile apps we are loving include: Ego (check web stats on the go), Flipboard (Social Magazine) and Evernote (to help you remember everything).

Want to customize yor Facebook page?  We’re currently evaluating Shortstack, FaceIt Pages, North Social and Page Modo.  If you have used any of these and have a preference we’d love to get your feedback.

And now some social media tools:  Echofon (never read a tweet twice), Buffer (add posts  and “automagically” post them through the day), CoTweet (manage mutliple Twitter feeds).
