One of my favorite tools to use on the web is slowly becoming one of my favorite to use on mobile as well.
HootSuite was my number one content publishing tool for a LONG time, but in the last year it’s slid into my number two spot. However with this update they could be creeping back up to number one.
Although there are no significant additions the improvements have been a long time coming. Now we shall put them to the test!

Facebook is finally starting to show why they bought WhatsApp with this update to Messenger.
Notice you can now group messages, forward messages, text and call from the Messenger App. Not all this came in the most recent update but it’s all a sign of forward progress and Facebook showing consumers why the purchase of WhatsApp.

Facebook recently updated their iPhone App giving users the ability to reply - something that was available online only. The group admin ability is a welcomed plus, if you’re an admin.
They added trending topics to the iPad now.
If you’re an avid Facebook user share your thoughts about the app with me.

Easter

Getting to know you (#G2KU) is a new blog series that will give us a chance to learn more about each other.

Growing up I celebrated Easter by attending church, gathering with family to eat and eat some more. It was a celebration centered around family and food - the egg hunt came later. I was always told the true meaning of Easter, but it never felt like it.

Don’t get me wrong, I love celebrating Easter with family, food and egg hunts, but because of all this we can tend to miss the true meaning of Easter. It is not the celebration of the crucifixion - it’s a celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. For me now, it is still a focus on family, food and egg hunts, but I will always remember the sacrifice Jesus made.

It is through the death of Jesus that the resurrection was possible, making the way for forgiveness. We were forgiven by the sacrifice of the life of Jesus, but given a new life with His resurrection - now that is worth celebrating.

Now you know how and why I celebrate Easter. Share with me how you celebrate Easter. Make sure you use the hashtag for getting to know you, #G2KU.
