Previously I wrote here about the need for social media to be managed correctly so that it will be a tool and not just another frustration.

Now I want to introduce two new social engagement tools that can be used to increase exposure to blogs, videos and networks.  They are helpful in broadening your subscriber base.  First up is Crowdbooster, a site that can provide analytics of your Facebook and Twitter accounts and also allow you to schedule posts to your Twitter feed for when you may be busy.

Next is Empire Avenue, this is both a social connection tool and a game as you create yourself or your business a company and buy and sell stock.  Your social activities on Twitter, Facebook, blogs and YouTube gain you stock points and money.  The more you grow, the more others take note and buy your shares and endorse you.  The down side: do not start this site if you cannot regularly post and interact, even for a few minutes a day.  One day’s missed activity can tank your shares.

The fun part is that you can register as a person or business so your activity reflects your goals; fun or networking.  You meet like minded people as the interests are a prominent area on the profile of each.  And getting to play stock market with no real money at stake is great fun.

Come join Techsnoop on these sites, we are listed under DKemp Designs.
