1. Emoji Keyboard by JoyPixels
Although simple, Emoji Keyboard is one of the best extensions of Google Chrome for everyday social work. Especially here at Hivamedia, where we use emoji everywhere!
The main function of the Emoji Keyboard is to facilitate the search for emojis. To use the tool is very simple; you just have to install, look for the ideal emoji for your post, copy, and paste.
A major advantage of this extension is its constant update. You no longer have to hunt for the emoji you want on many different sites. Now all the emojis, including the latest releases, will be in one place!
2. Save to Facebook
Our second tool referral is Save To Facebook. Just by the name, it’s easy to understand its function. This extension is used to directly save to Facebook all the interesting things you find on the Internet.
You can archive videos, articles, and more. One tip is to save ideas for successful posts or marketing campaigns and use them to gain interesting insights when creating content for the brand. You can also share the files you have saved on the social network with your friends or on your own timeline.
3. App for Instagram with DM
Have you heard of App for Instagram with DM? With this tool, you can access all Insta functions from the desktop. That’s right, after installing this extension you will be able to view the Stories, the feed and best of all: reply or send DM from your computer.
4. Seo Minion
Our fourth extension indication for Google Chrome is Seo Minion. As its name implies, this tool has many SEO functions and is sure to help you optimize the organic positioning of a website.
With Seo Minion, you can analyze on-page SEO, view internal and external links, check broken links, and understand Google search results. All in real-time.
MozBar is an essential tool for anyone who does SEO, especially when you need to review the authority of websites and pages of other brands.
Here at Hivamedia, we use MozBar to understand how our competitors optimize their SEO OnPage, view title, description, distribution of key terms and semantics in heading tags, as well as Page Authority and Domain Authority (Moz metrics that measure the authority to search engines).
If you are still not convinced to download this extension – which is almost impossible – it is worth remembering how analyzing the authority of websites is essential to make strategic partnerships in digital marketing. Use this tool to your advantage, visit the websites of future partners to find out how relevant they are on the Internet, as well as your competitors who are the reference in the market.
Our last indication is special for the writers! The LanguageTool facilitates the process of proofreading, saving time, and preventing errors go unnoticed.
With this tool, you can check the text of any web page, from emails to posts on social networks, and you can still detect specific errors that other extensions cannot, such as incorrect use of “plus and but,” for example.
In addition, the Language Tool does the correction in over 25 languages, so if you have an international customer, or write for pages in another language, this extension is also very useful!
