        This is a tool used for social media management. The most appealing side of Hootsuite is the fact that it allows you to manage three major (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn) social networks from one board. The free version of this tool even allows you to add RSS feeds, enabling you to automatically tweet your or someone else’s blog posts.

          Scoop.it is a search engine specifically designed for finding content, and it works flawlessly.

It’s very easy to use and the only thing you need to do is to type in the specific topic you have interest in and the results will pop out.

          Results include thousands of top rated articles which are connected to the topic you typed in. This search engine comes in handy when you are looking for top-trending topics that can help you get a better perspective on what to write about.

            Has it ever happened to you that you come up with an amazing idea but you are no where near your computer to make a note of it? Personally, this happened to me many times and this is why I started using the Dragon Dictation app. This app allows a person to record their thoughts by simply speaking. Not only can it record your speech, but it also turns it into text —  making this an easy and fast way to form a text without even writing.

            6. Trello

            Trello

              Creating a constant flow of good content for a blog is one of the most important things you need to accomplish. But this is easier said than done as writers often get creative droughts. No matter if a blog is run by one person or it has a lot of contributors, it happens. This is why Trello is becoming one of the most popular tools for blogging as it allows you to plan easily. With Trello, you can create boards for editorial calendars that can help you organize writers and switch tasks when they are finding a hard time to write something good. The boards are very user friendly and intuitive, allowing users to overview and organize content easily.

              Google Analytics

                Tracking your blog statistics is essential to learn about the amount of visitors your blog has and what their activities are. Google Analytics is a free tool made by Google and it can help you find out where traffic comes from, what users click on your blog and the average time users spend on your site.

                This is a very useful tool that can tell you if you are heading in the right direction while also showing you on which aspects of your blog campaign you need to work more.

                8. WordPress

                  Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

                  Does technology have all the answers?

                  This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

                  Creating technological solutions transparently

                  This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

                  Technology as the connecting tool

                  Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

                  “Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
