When you post to multiple social media sites, such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, you can save time by managing all of your accounts from one application. Many of these applications are Web-based. They allow you to view your feeds and post to your followers and friends from a single interface. Some also allow you to schedule your posts for future distribution.

Adding accounts is as simple as clicking the social network option, logging in to your network, and then granting Alternion permission to post on your behalf. You can then selecting privacy settings for each network. Alternion also provides a single inbox to manage Yahoo!, Gmail, Windows Live and your POP3 email accounts.
Schedule Distribution With Buffer
Buffer allows you to schedule your posts to each social network site. It also includes a Firefox add-on that allows you to share content from webpages you visit. The free version allows you to connect a single personal profile on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, App.net and Google+.

You can increase the number of linked profiles to 12 with a monthly subscription upgrade, which also entitles you to buffer an unlimited number of posts while collaborating with a colleague.
