Content it king and the amount of likes and retweets any given social media post garners increases dramatically by including great images. Twitter posts with images generate 150% more retweets than tweets containing just text. The flux of social networks that base their utility on images is growing by the day. Vine, Instagram, Wonder PL, Stellar, Pinterest and many others are solely driven by visual content. 

Pic Monkey: allows you to edit photos and collages in very creative ways. Play around with this, you may be surprised about how many cool things you can create if you add some fantasy to it.

Social Image resizer tool: Make sure your images are resized for the sites you want to use them on, whether it is creating a Twitter profile picture or a Facebook header. It is important that your images appear as you want them to and not look stretched or out of focus. 

Timeline Slicer: Customize images by uploading and adding them into a Facebook page through this site. You can adjust and view how your or your company's Facebook site will look. When you are done you can download them and upload them into your real Facebook profile. 

Photovisi: A website that allows you to make photo collages fast and easy without having to create an account. The images are easily sharable. 

Be funky: Allows you to edit images online and grab photos from a variety of social media accounts in addition to your own computer. You can eliminate red eyes, blemishes, crop images and apply filters as you like. 

Visual.ly: Info graphics are an increasingly popular way to share stats and research findings in a compelling manner. Easel.ly, pictochart and infogr.am are other sites that make infograms free of charge. 

Recite: This is a site that makes quotes come alive by editing them into beautiful pictures. Find a quote that you want to use and share them across all your social networks. Quozio, Pinwords and Pinstamatic are other sites that essentially do the same thing.

Twitter rolls out Mobile App Install Ads by Isabelle Ringnes

It just got easier for a start-up, developer or marketer to drive consumers to download their mobile apps. 

Twitter recently announced a set of ad creative, targeting and measurements features geared to promoting app installs and engagement on and off their platform. 

Marketers will have the option to buy Promoted Tweets designed to drive installs as well as running campaigns outside Twitter through the company's MoPub mobile ad exchange.

By using the ads.twtter.com website, advertisers can run simultaneous marketing campaigns to more than 241 million active users on Twitter, and to more than 1 billion mobile devices off-Twitter.

The ad promotion tools are only available to U.S, advertisers while still in private beta.

The company is hoping that the app install ads will be as profitable as they have been for Facebook, which has helped drive the social network's impressive mobile ad growth.
