Using Social Media to Net the Best Computer Software

softwareWhile the advent of computer technology has made operating a business as smooth and efficient as ever, for the non-tech minded, selecting the right computer software can present a very daunting task.

Luckily, there is an army of knowledgeable “techies” accessible through the social media community, happily waiting to assist the most timid business owner with their computer software needs.

Look for fellow business owners who have written product reviews themselves in the hopes of helping an entrepreneur like you.

And don’t be shy about posting your questions.  It’s called “social” media for a reason, and the tech community especially is always eager to point you to the best available product.

Simply type in “computer software advice” in the search bar, and see what the following social media sites have to offer.


For the “pressed for time” business owner not looking for long, elegant copy that drags on and on about all the different features a piece of software has to offer, twitter is the perfect place to look.

Limited to 140 character messages, twitter users must always be concise and to the point, so anyone offering software advice will be sure to only list the most important features.


The largest social networking site in the world, with more than1 billion users, Facebook allows users to create profile pages which can include images, video, music, and graphics.

Look for a tech-minded individual with plenty of “likes” and “friends,” and be wary of companies that create profile pages for themselves to review their own products.


Like Facebook, Google+ is a social networking site, which recently surpassed twitter to become the second-largest social networking site in the world.

With approximately 359 million users, you’ll be sure to find a wide range of software junkies who enjoy sharing software advice just as much as they enjoy the software itself.


For the visual learners, YouTube is the perfect place to have a tech superstar walk you through the different features a piece of software comes equipped with.

Video posters can post video of their computer screen as they narrate and navigate their way around, so that viewers can actually see what they are doing as they are telling you about it.


Created in 2007, this social networking site of over 130.5 million blogs enables users to upload multimedia and other items to a short-form blog.

While not as restrictive as twitter’s 140-character limit, Tumblr posts tend to be short and to the point, yet at the same time very visually appealing, given the clean interface and the fact that users can post images as well.

Search results will be displayed vertically right under the search bar in an easy-to-scroll-through manner.


For the more traditional individuals looking for thorough, Consumer Reports-style product reviews, the blogosphere is your best bet.

While top blogging platforms like WordPress and Blogger allow users to style their blogs with fancy designs and images, the crux of the blog is still the written content.

A quick Google search for “computer software advice blogs” will bring up plenty of links directing you to individuals who will break down a piece of software, feature by feature.
