Ideas to improve Social Media CompaniesJanuary 12th, 2015
For those of us who are on social media everyday, we all have our pet peeves. Here is a list of things I want done to social media sites I use on a regular basis:
Twitter – Please add the ability to edit posts. At very least I want to be able to make changes within a few minutes of posting.
Facebook – I love that I can edit my posts as I want to on Twitter. But please allow me to add photos to posts when I edit.
Instagram – Let me add links!! Intagram to me is an enigma, the kids love it, but there isn’t much you can do with it from a business standpoint. I also wouldn’t mind a web interface.
Pinterest – Let me organize my pins, just as I can re-arrange boards
YouTube – Need to be able to have custom url, from day one of establishing channel. Hard to publicize channel with ridiculous string URL.
HootSuite – Absolutely needs to add the ability to upload photos with their bulk upload tool. What is the point of bulk uploads without images? We are all told that images help posts, but then you can’t include with bulk upload.
Google+ – No matter how hard I try I can’t get much traction. I think Google should see if they can get this channel going in 2015 or finally give it up.
LinkedIn – Company pages need updating, they are lackluster and numbers are weak. Should be a major part of a business social media site, not an afterthought.
Bottom Line: I think social media companies have to continuously adapt in order to stay relevant. I am sure you have a bunch of ideas to improve your favorite sites. Please add your comment below, I would love to hear your thoughts.
