Coming Soon: Twitter Business Center

Earlier today, Mashable confirmed with Twitter that they have begun beta testing with what they are calling the “Twitter Business Center”.

Basically, this new business center will allow businesses to utilize the power of Twitter even more so than they currently do. Features include customizable profile pages, the ability to add a “Verified Account” badge to their profile, extra preferences to help reach customers, and multiple contributors (think HootSuite Team).

Check out the article from Mashable Co-Editor, Ben Parr.

Managing your Social Networks

I’ve been using both Ping.fm and HootSuite to manage my professional social networks (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn). I started off with Ping, but have mostly been using HootSuite since last week.

I see pros and cons for both and actually presented my own comparisons to a few co-workers this morning during our Social Media meeting. Our company is beginning to manage social networks for our clients, so I am researching the ever-changing social media world all day.

I appreciate all of the social networks that Ping supports, however, HootSuite has been more user-friendly for me, and seems to be faster with updating overall.

Do you manage your social networks? What platform do you like best? Are there better social networking management systems out there than Ping.fm or HootSuite?
