Popular social media Apps
The Oxford Dictionary just named “selfie” the word of the year. I’d say that just about sums up 2013. This year, social networking took on a whole new meaning and has become an enormous beast that is impossible to contain. Whether you share your personal life on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, or all of the above, the Internet has made it possible for anyone to keep track of how many people like them.
The writers at iDownloadBlog have come up with a list of what they think are the 10 best social networking apps of 2013. Check out our favorites and then vote for the one you like best to be added to our Best Apps of 2013 list…
Twitter’s most popular third-party client received a major update in 2013 that redesigned it from the ground up. The new user interface has been refreshed with an iOS 7 look and feel. With this app, users can receive native Push Notifications, activate Mute filters to block out certain hashtags, users, and keywords. Sync your timeline, direct message read status, and mute filters between devices. Save drafts, add locations, attach photos, and more. This app is on sale for $1.99.
This year, Twitter decided to up its game in the social networking realm. This video sharing app allows users to make mini (micro, even) movies and share them to a feed very similar to Twitter’s design. It has become hugely popular in its short life and has also become a go-to service for launching teaser trailers, product commercials, and more. A person could spend hours just watching creative 6-second clips from the editor’s pick section. This app is available for free.
Google’s social networking site may not have the forward momentum that Facebook has, but Google+ has a lot of cool features that most people just don’t take advantage of. Hangouts, for example, lets you easily have group video chats with others and it works better than most group video chat services. The app lets users have similar hangout sessions in a mobile capacity. You can share photos, add GIFs and animations, join Hangouts, participate in video calls with up to 10 people, and chat with others across platforms, including mobile and desktop devices. This app is available for free.
Another hugely popular Twitter client that received a major update in 2013 came in the form of black. At a time when app developers have been producing flat, white apps, this new design is both refreshing and complimentary of iOS 7. It is nice to see that devs understand that the new look of Apple’s mobile devices is not so two-dimensional. This app offers background refresh, support for additional accounts, and lots of features native to Twitter’s service. You can also bookmark tweets, upload photos from Twitter, img.ly, Mobypicture, TwitPic, and CloudApp, and mute hashtags and users. This app is available for $1.99.

If selling to the public I would say, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr. If selling B2B you can add LinkedIn to that.
