Are you always busy spending way too much time on multiple social media platforms, posting, checking… getting confused? Here are three social media tools you should be using:


Hootsuite is a dashboard to manage and measure your social media networks

HootSuite provides a dashboard to monitor and manage all of your social networks. It allows you to send and schedule social media updates across all your social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+, WordPress LinkedIn etc. It also allows you view updates of those you follow, monitor feeds, check engagement, create reports etc.

It is a very handy tool to schedule posts in advance so that you’re not online every minute of the day. You can monitor your networks and schedule posts to go out at the times that they will get the most engagement. It’s also very handy for when you are going on holidays and you want to keep your social engagement going.

Hootsuite offers a free trial but for the better features it’s a paid service.

Social Mention

Social Mention is a real-time social media analysis on any topic you want to monitor

Social Mention is a free service that lets you get a real time snapshot of your social media mentions on the web. It allows you to easily track and measure what people are saying about you, your business, a new product, or any topic on the web’s social media platforms. It’s free too, which is great.


Iconosquare is a service that manages all of your Instagram statistics and presents them in a simple and engaging way. 

You can see your total number of likes received, your most liked photos, the average number of likes and comments per photo. You can also track your follower growth and more advanced stats and analytics. It also allows you to create Facebook cover images with a collage of your most recent Instagram photos. Iconosquare also has blog and website Instagram feed plugins and widgets. Yet another free app, pretty good I think!
