Hootsuite Certified Professional

Wow! Look at me! I’m now a Certified Hootsuite Professional!

What does this mean? Well, what it really means is that I’ve taken a course and passed a test on using Hootsuite, a popular means for managing social media messages. The tool is very good for Twitter messages, of course (consider the name), but it also connects to Facebook (accounts, pages, and groups), Google+, Pinterest, Flickr, YouTube, Tumblr, and even WordPress blogs. (Yes, I suppose I could have written this post on Hootsuite and posted it here from there, but I wanted to use the new WordPress 4.0 interface.)

Anyway, I’m trying to learn how to use Social Media for marketing, particularly for my writing, so this is just one part of my education. The fact that I get a nice little certificate is just a bonus!
