Put all the contents with clear classification.
Hootsuite makes it easy to schedule content you'd like to share by date and time, or by using 'auto schedule' so that a pre-determined (by you) number of posts go out each day (from content you've added to a que for sharing).
Most of the major social networks work with Hootsuite: Facebook (a business (Page or a personal profile), Google+, LinkedIn, Twitter and a few others (foursquare, WordPress and mixi).
I like the way you can view the activity from each social network in columns, making it easy to see what others have posted, what you've posted, any interaction and anything you've scheduled, etc. Makes it easy to monitor activity on anything you've posted, so you don't 'set it and forget it'.
