Downloadable content is scattered all over the Internet, and it’s easy to lose track of all the sites you may visit to add extras to your hard drive. Instead of sorting through bookmarks, trying to remember URLs or scrolling through your Programs List in hopes of getting lucky, connect to your favorite software sites with social media. Many of the companies you download packages from have profiles on popular social sites, just like you.
Following Your Favorites
As any Facebook user knows, you get to see what your friends are up to when you check your social media homepages. Anytime your sister posts that she’s bought another holiday present or your brother announces that he’s watching the game, you see it (whether you want to or not). But sometimes, those random updates can be helpful…depending on who you’re following.
When you follow your favorite software sites, you’ll be among the first to know about special deals, coupons, upgrades, new packages and other news that will keep you in-the-know. Social media is a pleasant distraction, but sometimes it can also be a valuable tool.
Keeping Up With the Patches
As any Windows user knows, software updates are common. Most of the programs you download will automatically update themselves, but this is not a fail-safe system. Software creators may completely reboot their programs, re-releasing software in brand-new packages to leave you out of date. Unless you visit the website to get the new software package, you’ll be stuck using woefully behind-the-times software. Sometimes, your programs may stop functioning because of a different software update that changes the way your system functions. The best way to make sure you’ve got the latest patches, download information and notes is to keep checking the sites where your software packages are located.
Create a “Favorite Sites” List
But who can remember them all? That’s how adding your favorite software packages to your site can help. Many software sites have their own social media profiles. Zugo, for example, has a LinkedIn profile to keep you up-to-date on any changes or important information regarding their toolbar packages.
Instead of filling up your bookmarks list or trying to remember all the software sites you visit, add their social media profiles to a special “software” or “favorite sites” list; this way, you won’t have to repeatedly check homepages to get new information. Important updates will be conveyed through quick social media updates, which you can read while you’re learning about the latest cute trick performed by your aunt’s poodle. Add Zugo LTD and all your favorite software sites today to get immediate updates.
