HootSuite announced a group of new apps last week including one for video site Dailymotion that allows you to not only post and comment but also to view videos via HootSuite and to promote them to your social network. This multifacted capability is what makes HootSuite one of the favorite tools of many DIY musicians and music marketers.
Though the Dailymotion app is free, the new SoundCloud app costs $1.99 per month and allows you to:
Publish new sounds; View and play your sounds; Stream favorited sounds, affiliated sounds, exclusive sounds and recent activity; Share sounds with HootSuite social networks.
You can check out the available apps to see what third parties are providing beyond HootSuite's features.
