A decade ago nobody had even coined the expression, but today social media has become an indispensible part of our lives, and for the most parts our lives are richer because of it. The younger generation has never known a world without social media; for them it is second nature. So, to enhance your social media experience, try out some of the following apps; they are considered to be some of the best ones around.
Whatever phone you are using, the basically essential apps are Facebook and Twitter. The free Facebook app for the iPhone and for Android phones allows to easily keep in touch, modify your status, view and share pictures, keep up to date with news, events, messages, chat, and many other things too. Similarly with the free Twitter apps for these phones, you can tweet and follow to your heart’s content. So when you start looking for a mobile phone make sure these are your first downloads.
If professional networking is your thing, then with the LinkedIn app you can keep up with your business network on the move – just as if you were sitting in front of your desk computer.
If you are into blogging, then the WordPress app for Android phones gives you the freedom to keep blogging while on the move. It makes it very easy to create new posts, to edit existing content, and to mediate comments without having to wait until you get back to your desk.
Instagram is a very useful little app if you are into interesting pictures that you love to share with your friends. With this app you can capture an interesting or amusing shot, and edit it using the various inbuilt filters before posting it to your social networks. You can follow your friends who are also using Instagram and swap comments.
Do you like to keep track of what your friends are up to right now? If they are in the vicinity you might care to join them, and an app that makes all this possible is Foursquare. Everyone on your network can keep track of what each member is doing and where they are. You can exchange ideas about various places and locations, and develop a list of your favourite ones and earn points.
