8 Social Media Apps You Need to Use

| Wednesday, September 05, 2012 | |

Social networks have apps.
Social networks have apps. They can perform a wide array of activities and simplify tasks. Most people don’t realize that social networks have apps, and those that do don’t realize how many are out there or what they can do.
If you have yet to use an app on your Facebook account, you need to give them a try, and the following are eight of the best apps out there.

Google Maps

Google Maps truly is everywhere, and it’s also an app for Facebook. Google Maps can help your following find the actual location of your business. You can place it on your profile and allow customers to know where to find your business.


It seems silly that a social network will be an app for another social network, but Pinterest is, and you should use it on your other social networks. Your Pinterest page will be added to your Facebook business page, and your following will be able to see your Pinterest activity.


If you have a YouTube channel, get the app and have your channel’s feed placed on Facebook. This will help your Facebook following stay in the loop with your videos and allow you to promote your channel on multiple platforms.


You have the ability to use a Twitter app on your Facebook page that allows your following to receive your tweets on your Facebook page. This is a great way to keep your Facebook page engaged with everything that you share on all social media networks.

RSS for Pages

If you have a blog, you need RSS for Pages. This will allow your blog content to be posted directly to your Facebook account. Now you’ll have no need to share the content once it’s posted to your blog, as it will already be spread to your Facebook account.


Use the Reviews app to allow your Facebook following to leave reviews on your business, products or services. Real reviews from real clients will help prove the credibility of your business, and good reviews will get more customers interested in your business.


Everyone enjoys a good poll now and then, and SurveyMonkey can help you create polls that make your page more interactive. You can also use the polls to get customer feedback and learn more about what your customers are looking for.

Customize Your Own

You can hire an agency to build you your own customized app. You can create an app to do just about anything, from holding a contest to selling a product.
Apps are a great way to push more content to your Facebook page without needing to come up with something new and clever everyday. If you have a Facebook page for your business, you should definitely invest in these apps to help you generate content and build relationships with your following. Plus, it allows your followers to learn more about other social networks you're on, and you may get them to follow you on multiple channels, increasing their loyalty to your brand.
