@Bufferapp also provides some analysis and is very easy to use. #WebgrrlsDiva Design

Yes! It’s pretty intuitive "@DivaDesign @Bufferapp also provides some analysis and is very easy to use. #Webgrrls"Webgrrls
For those of you who use Hootsuite, do you find that those Facebook posts have fewer views? #webgrrlsStav Birnbaum
@stavieb I get best viewer numbers for Facebook from blogposts auto posting thru twitterfeed. Have tested everything. #webgrrlsLea Ann Stundins
@Webgrrls It’s illogical that this approach gets more views but there it is. #webgrrlsLea Ann Stundins
@mommyswishlist interesting, thanks. I had that set up automatically for a while but it’s stopped working. Need to fix. #webgrrlsStav Birnbaum
Will have to try it! RT @mommyswishlist: A1 Does anyone use that beta fan database in @offerpop? Amazing analytics #webgrrlsNelly Yusupova
