It’s no secret that social media is a tremendous tool for keeping in contact with friends and family. Businesses have quickly picked up on just how effective it can be for marketing purposes as well, particularly mobile marketing. More people are connected to the internet than ever before, and mobile platforms are driving that explosive growth. In fact, internet traffic on mobile devices is expected to exceed the internet traffic on desktops soon. Much of that internet use is geared towards social media outlets, so mobile marketers are finding new ways to use social media to reach new customers and inform existing fans.

"As a result, it’s been bizarre to see the constant stream of falsehoods and confusion about Google+, which I know to be untrue. One writer after another used to say Google+ was a “ghost town,” and in 100% of those cases the author was not circling people or engaging. They confused their own lack of activity with a general lack of activity on the network."

Ever since social media and social networks have gone mainstream, our digital lives have become complicated. There are a number of social media management tools already out on the market that aim to give users the tools they need to better mange, filter, and prioritize the content they read from their favorite blogs and social networks such as Twitter and Facebook. Almost all these tools fall short of their intended goals and why I'm always on the lookout for something better to come along.
In the CMS Report mailbag, we have an email from Eric Santos, co-founder of a new social media management tool called Dwibbles. I've only taken a brief look at Dwibbles. My first impressions is that Dwibbles is still in the early stages of getting you where you want to go with it. However, Eric and his team knows this and I appreciate Eric's enthusiasm in wanting to tackle this problem. I think if Eric and company can find a way for me to combine the I content I read from social media, news feeds, and my favorite blogs into something better organized and manageable then I would forever be grateful. After reading his email, I plan to maintain my watch on the evolution of Dwibbles and be forever hopeful.
