If you’re like me, you follow 1,000+ people on Twitter and have too many “likes” to count on Facebook. And, like me, you may also get all your news-–from friends, publications, and brands-–via your social presences. Google+’s circles were an instant way to stay organized upon signing up for the newest social network, but that wasn’t the case for Facebook and Twitter. Here’s how you can revisit your social networks and create easy-to-read and departmentalized streams of information.
The plan of attack: Create Twitter lists then feed the separate streams to Hootsuite.
How to do it: Create a new list under the profile icon on Twitter. Click “Create List” and choose to make it public or private. I have separate lists for tech, friends, travel, and more. On Hootsuite, under your Twitter tab, click Add Stream>Lists then select your profile and the correct list.
The plan of attack: Interest lists allow us to separate your feed into separate streams.
How to do it: On the left side bar, look for Interests (you may have to click “more” to find it). Click More>Add Interests>Create List. Select people and/or pages that fit into a certain category, then name the list. Once the list is created, hover over it on your sidebar. Click the edit button then “Add to Favorites.”
