Bliss Control, A One-Stop Shop For Updating Your Social Network Profile Settings

Life should be simple. 

Well I think it should anyway. 

However I seem to spend too much time listening to business owners tell me that Social Media is complex, always changing and very difficult to manage.

Here's a simple - and free - tool that will help you. It's from Bliss Control and with just a couple of clicks, you can choose one of many settings from across the social web, including things like “change profile picture,” “change password,” “change email,” “change 3rd party permissions,” and more. You then click on the icon to pick the service where you want to make the change.

At launch, Bliss Control supports: Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest, YouTube, LinkedIn, Path, Flickr, Meetup, StumbleUpon, Foursquare, Google+ and Instagram.

To be clear, the service doesn’t require your login information to work, it only points you to the right settings page on the appropriate website.

Bliss Control isn’t providing anything you couldn’t do from any of these web services themselves. The beauty here is that it organizes all the links on one page, allowing you to quickly perform the updates without having to search around for the right settings area from site to site. That’s especially useful because when you go to make a change – like a new profile photo or email address – you often want to make that change everywhere across the web. This speeds up the process by providing a centralized place for your efforts. Nothing to it.

Regular readers (hi Mum) will know that I firmly believe that a business today HAS to be fully engaged with Social Media. Participation on Social Media platforms increases your on-line footprint, creates quality back links and proves to the world that you are alive and open for business. All of which is important to Google. And when you play the rules the way that Google wants them played then you massively increase your prospects of being found on Google by the very people you want as customers.
