It's time to upgrade your social media tactics. And these social media hacks are sure to help you stand out from the crowd, or just make your life a whole lot easier when it comes to social media management.

Facebook

Find targeted content

According to Search Engine Land, Facebook Graph Search only shows results from your connections, except when you search for a hashtag.

Replace ads with baby animals

Hate ads, love animals? Ok so this feature isn't awfully useful but it's a novelty that will cheer you up during mid-afternoon desk fatigue. The BabyAnimalBlocker plugin from Hubspot means you can replace banner ads with pictures of cute animals all over the web, including Facebook. Get the Plugin for Chrome.

Embed Slideshare presentations

Embed a Slideshare presentation directly into your Tweet so your followers can flip through your content without leaving Twitter. Link to the presentation and it will embed automatically.

 

Create a Twitter photo collage

Struggling to choose between two, three or even four photos to share on Twitter? Say goodbye to tough decisions with Twitter’s photo collage feature. You can include four photos in one tweet and it will automatically be transformed into a collage for you.
