GrabInbox – easily manage, post and schedule to multiple twitter and facebook accounts

GrabInbox is a new and easy way to manage multiple twitter, facebook and linkedin accounts. Traditionally every new app that comes out to manage multiple twitter accounts relies on users having to create and monitor several tabs. But grabinbox takes a new approach in the form of ‘notifications’.

With grabinbox, you do not really need to painstakingly monitor each and every account. All you do is add your twitter, facebook or linkedin accounts (posting to multiple Google plus accounts will come as soon as google releases the API). Once you’ve added the account, grabinbox will continuously monitor all your accounts and display notifications when you have new mentions, direct messages or any new posts by your friends.

The notifications are completely configurable. Keeping a tab on multiple twitter lists is super easy since you can just add the list and set notifications so that you don’t miss on any new content.

Apart from being able to efficiently manage all the several accounts you have, posting to these accounts is equally simple. The update box allows you to even schedule messages for a future date. If you do not like to manually schedule messages,  you can hit the ‘JustLater’ button. JustLater automatically schedules updates such that your tweets go out at the right time and get maximum exposure. The site uses a set of sophisticated algorithms that determines when is the best time to tweet to twitter as well as post to facebook.

To make it easy to share web pages across your social networks, GrabInbox has a nifty bookmarklet that let’s you share any web page using any browser. For Google Chrome, there is a super fast plugin that makes it a breeze to share web pages across all your networks.

Give GrabInbox a try today as it is completely FREE to get started!

Quickie

  • Manage multiple twitter, facebook, fb fan pages and linkedin accounts
  • Easily post to multiple twitter, fb, fan pages and linkedin accounts

TweetPo.st – a smarter way to update FaceBook from twitter

TweetPo.st is a FaceBook application that helps you update your FaceBook status with twitter updates. Now there are a lot of apps that do just that (including one of our favourites SelectiveTwitter) but TweetPo.st has a slew of new features that help you have only the right twitter updates sent to FaceBook.

To start with, as a basic feature you can post tweets as FaceBook updates. Links that you share on twitter can be sent to your FaceBook Wall so that any videos, pics etc. contained in the links can be displayed to your FaceBook friends.

The app can completely ignore @replies and @mentions would be changed to real names! You can also have only those tweets that you specify be posted to twitter (this is what SelectiveTwitter does).

Links that you post on FaceBook can be tracked with awe.sm.

Quickie

  • Post tweets as Facebook Status Updates
  • Post links you tweet on your Facebook Wall (so your friends can watch videos and see pictures right in their News Feed)
  • Ignore @replies
  • Change @mentions to real names

TweetPo.st Says
