Get Your GovLoop On Hootsuite

Are you an avid tweeter? facebooker? Well if so we’ve got good news now you can send your tweets and status updates straight to GovLoop at the same time you are sending them to facebook and twitter.

Thanks to a Ning upgrade we here at GovLoop have synced with Hootsuite. For those of you unfamiliar with Hootsuite it’s pretty much the bees knees. Seriously it really helps you manage several social media accounts at once. You can update all of them with information or just specific ones.

So what does all this mean? It means that you can now see what’s happening on Govloop with new blogs, discussions and friends/community updates the same time you are checking your twitter and facebook.

Maybe more importantly it makes GovLoop incredibly accessible from a mobile device because Hootsuite has some amazing apps for pretty much any mobile platform.

It’s really easy to step up too. Just go to Hootsuite and create an account. Then from there you’ll see where you can add a Ning stream and you just enter your login info for GovLoop and viola you’re done.

If anyone has problems setting it up feel free to ask me and I’ll help you through it.

This is really cool and will not only augment your GL experience but also your other social networks.

Pretty Cool. Initially I was disappointed in not being able to find in the Twitter feed a way to do a search, but then saw that hashtags are linked and kick off a pop-up window to search that tag. User names work the same way … giving links to follow/unfollow etc.

You must have been reading my mind. I learned about HootSuite last week and set up four of the five free streams. I wanted GovLoop for the fifth stream, but couldn’t figure out how to do it.

Thanks very much! And thanks to Ed Dzitko for adding the network url.
