Social Media Application Control

Manage and Control Your Connected Social Media Apps

gartner-2013-cool-vendor-learn-moreIt seems like there’s an app for just about everything these days, including all your social media.  Have you ever wondered how many apps your admins have connected to your Facebook, Twitter and other social media accounts? Facebook alone has more than 10 million available.

Marketing and publishing apps, support apps, social integration apps, photo and video sharing apps, mobile apps, etc. – each help expand reach and engagement. However, they also introduce security and compliance risks.

Most enterprise brands, for example, have invested in a publishing tool with an established workflow.  However, like everyone, they still likely use many other publishing and mobile apps (e.g. HootSuite, TweetDeck, etc.) along with direct posting from the web. All of these options bypass your approved publishing app(s) and workflow and introduce risk.

And it’s not just third-party apps that expose your brand to risk. Internal web 2.0 enabled and support apps can also connect to your social media and publish. What’s more, even the social networks themselves can publish to each other. What this means, for example is that if your Pinterest account is compromised, it may be able to publish bad content directly to your other social properties.

What if you could manage and control the apps that can connect to your social media accounts?  What if you could authorize only specific, approved tools to publish content, thereby enforcing your social media workflow?
