1. Pin It Button

I love Pinterest! Who doesn’t? It’s one of my favorite sites because I can find and organize all of the interesting content I come across and share it later on my social networks. Plus, it’s a super fun and practical way to plan Social Media content calendars. So that’s why I take advantage of the Pin It Chrome extension. It allows me to send all the relevant content for my audience that I find while browsing straight to Pinterest, without leaving the page I’m on.

2. Rite Tag

Rite Tag is the perfect companion for working with Twitter, which is why I’ve added it to my Chrome extensions for Social Media. Why is it so valuable? Very simple: it allows me to analyze the hashtags I use in my tweets in real time. Just type any word with a number sign in front of it in order to see metrics instantly. Choosing which hashtags I’m going to use in my posts has become so much easier and more effective.

Not bad, right?

And that is exactly what Windows Resizer allows you to do. This super handy Chrome extension lets you view your publications across different screen resolutions, so you can adjust your text and design in the most convenient way possible.
