Top 3 basic social networking apps for Android
If your the type of person who likes to interact with people on the Internet and use an Android mobile phone, then you should at least have the three basic social apps available on the Android Market. These three mobile apps for Android addresses three different aspects of social networking. The frequency of using them deepends on what you do and who you are. You should at least download and install them to try out whether you really need all of them.
The three basic social networking apps for Android I am talking about are the Twitter app, Linkedin app and Facebook app. All three of them have official versions which you can install on your Android phone.
Twitter is a social network that more real-time. When you join Twitter, it’s like sending text messages. But the messages called tweets, are seen publicly by default. There are different reasons for tweeting for different people. Twitter is used by a lot of celebrities, companies providing support, politicians and famous people.
For example, companies or organizations tweet to provide information or client support in real time. Some people, like me, want to tweet about tech stuff. With Twitter, you can follow people. When you follow them, you’d be able to see their tweets. It has basically become a real time stream of what is happening around the world.
Linkedin is more of a business / professional social network. Most people who use Linkedin would want to touch base prospective clients. It is also a great way to look for a job because in Linkedin you post your career accomplishments which job hunters usually search to look for job candidates.
Facebook is geared more towards interacting with your friends and family. You get to post photos and make comments or send messages to family and friends.
I suggest you download and install the apps on your Android phone and try them out to see which one suites you. Below are links to the app’s pages on the Android Market:
