How to Improve Your Social Media Experience with ChromeFebruary 24, 2016
Do you use the Chrome browser on your desktop or mobile device for your real estate business? If so, you may already be familiar with a few time-saving extensions like Boomerang, which helps you schedule emails and sets automated reminders. There are also several extensions available that can help improve your social media experience. Here are some of the best:
Instagram for Chrome: Many real estate agents use Instagram to share unique photos and videos featuring their latest listings. This extension lets you check in on your stream without opening a new window, so you can review any comments, likes, etc. You’ll need your phone to post a picture, but taking a quick Instagram break is a seamless way to take a little respite from your work day.
Reddit Enhancement Suite: This social networking site is pretty plain, compared to sites like Instagram, because the focus is on the written word. However, the Chrome extension lets you set your personal tastes, such as setting a dark or light background, and will give you more info about a user when you mouse over his or her username.
LastPass: If you’re constantly creating accounts for new websites, and trying to come up with new passwords, LastPass will help you create order out of the chaos. It saves your passwords and gives you secure access from every computer and mobile device. The extension will fill out forms for you when you return to the site to log in.
Post to Tumblr: This Chrome extension allows you to select text on a page and post it to Tumblr without ever leaving the site you’re on. You can share links and photos too.
Evernote Web Clipper: This tool allows you to save and organize content you find on the web. It comes in handy when you’re researching blog article ideas.
Pocket: Think of Pocket as a DVR for content. When you find an article or video in Chrome that you want to view later, simply put it in Pocket and the content will automatically be synced to your phone, tablet or computer for later viewing.
Buffer: Many real estate agents use Buffer to share content to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ and more, from anywhere on the web. This extension allows you to post content immediately to social media, or put the content in your “buffer” for later posting.
TOSDR: Do you read the “terms of service” on a website? If your answer is, “No,” don’t worry. You’re not alone. Most people have never read the terms on a site. That’s why Terms of Service Didn’t Read decided to make this extension. It instantly tells you about a site’s terms of service and privacy policies, and lets you know how good or bad those policies are.
