I use the social media platforms, Swarm and Instagram on my smartphone quite often . Swarm used to be called Foursquare and is location-based.  It allows you to check-in to locations, businesses and venues to find information and get points. Instagram allows you to post pictures and videos in a continuous stream with your Instagram contacts. Since I started using Instagram, I have forgot about Pinterest. Sorry Pinterest.

I like to post to both of them from my smartphone and sometimes I would like to cross-post to other platforms like Facebook and LinkedIn. Both Swarm and Instagram allow cross-posting to Facebook. Unfortunately, they don’t allow cross-posting to LinkedIn – if they do I can’t find it. I don’t know the reason why, but it would be nice if it changed. You can post videos and pictures to LinkedIn directly and I do sometimes. Just not from Swarm or Instagram. That’s part of the reason I don’t post as much to LinkedIn as I do Facebook.  What do you think?
