What Social Media Tools Should We Review?

Viral Heat Google Plus

Every few months (it's actually been over a year since the last one) we like to review the various social media tools out there. The rate at which social media is growing makes it extremely challenging to manage for a business without the right tools. The rate at which social media tools are progressing makes knowing which tools work best an ongoing effort. The rate at which new social media tools keep popping up...

... you get the picture.

Inspired by the announcement that Viral Heat recently made, this weekend I will be reviewing as many social media tools as possible. Some will say that a weekend isn't long enough to do a complete analysis, but considering that I spend hours a day in multiple social media tools, I believe that I'll be able to make certain judgments even with only a few hours on each. IF it takes longer than I thought I'll continue the following weekend.

PLEASE leave a comment, Tweet me @0boy, or reply to my Facebook post about it. Here are the ones I know I'll be reviewing for sure:

  • * Hootsuite
  • * Post Acumen
  • * Vertical Response
  • * Buffer
  • * Sendible
  • * Viral Heat
  • * Cyfe
  • * Vocus
  • * Commun.it
  • * Agora Pulse
  • * GaggleAMP
  • * Sprout Social
  • * Social Toaster
  • * Scoop.it
  • * Crowdbooster
  • * Lithium

What else needs to be on the list?

I saw a post on the Social Media Examiner blog today about three tools to simplify your social media marketing. One of the tools they wrote about is Engagio. Maybe you could check it out and let us know if it is worthy of usage.
