Keeping up with social networking can be a huge time eater. Finding ways to organize it all, publish it and let your readers know without having to go to 15-20 different sites seems like a never-ending quest. Your social “pipe” can get clogged quite quickly. Let Tarpipe help. Tarpipe is a fairly new tool to automate your publishing, share content easily and keep it all organized in one neat place. Offered as an alternative to services like Ping.fm, SocialThing or PixelPipe, Tarpipe allows you to organize workflows for your content to keep it moving in the right direction.
