Android devices are great for everything, especially social networking. If you are a bit of a social media addict, buying an Android device is probably the best thing you ever done (or worst depending on how you look at it!). There are numerous apps available in the Google Play Store to help you manage you’re networking habits, improve the overall experience of social media and even help you in some internet marketing activities, but which one do you choose?
We have created a list of the top 10 social media apps for Android phones to help you decide which app is for you; it’s up to you whether you choose to download one or all ten!

Seesmic integrates with Facebook, Twitter and Ping.fm and allows you to post to the various platforms from a single interface. To add to the appeal, Seesmic is totally free!
Hootsuite is as a great app for social networkers with an eye on marketing. You can get all of your social accounts in one place and micro-post to as many of them as you like at the same time. There is also pretty detailed analytic info provided, letting you know how many people have viewed for tweets and followed you.
While this app is initially set for exclusive release on Samsung’s new Galaxy S3, it will not be long before it is widely available on the Play Store. Flipboard transforms the traditional social networking experience by integrating with accounts and turning tweets and status updates into stylish magazine-style pages – as easy to read as they are to look at.
This app, like Seesmic, uses a multi-column layout to make it easy to view all the happenings on your favorite social networks. TweetDeck supports Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google +, amongst others and allows users to micro-blog to as many of the sites as the like from one place.

Social photography has a place in amongst the social network giants thanks to this app alone.
