Twitter introduced TweetDeck Teams last month, which allows users to share access to their Twitter accounts without sharing their passwords. Users can delegate and remove access to as many people as they like.
There are two types of accounts: admins and contributors. Admins and contributors have the ability to tweet, build lists, follow or unfollow accounts, send tweets and schedule tweets. Admins also have the power to add and remove people from the account and view the team. Both accounts can only be used through TweetDeck.
TweetDeck Teams can be beneficial to companies by eliminating the problems associated with sharing assess to a company account. Now, companies that have multiple people managing their Twitter presence do not have to worry about password security or changing passwords if someone leaves the company.
Social Media Tip of the Month:Customize your LinkedIn Profile with a Unique URL
A less widely known feature of Linkedin is the ability to customize your URL. Users are automatically given a default address upon setting up a profile; however, by going to Settings, users can change their URL to make it more memorable and enhance self-branding. Note: a custom URL may have between 5-30 characters with no spaces, symbols or special characters.
Social Media Platform of the Month: Quora
Quora is a crowdsourced database that was founded by two former Facebook employees in 2009. The website aggregates questions and answers to topics and allows users to collaborate by editing, answering and asking questions.
Users must register with their real names before they begin answering questions and voting on answers from other accounts.
Quora can be used by businesses in a number of ways. An example is branding—a company or its staff can establish expertise simply by answering questions. Businesses also can give direct answers to people regarding their businesses or share information from the company website.
