top 8 – Free Social Media Resources

14 Dec


1. Social Mention gives users a way to research blogs, twitter, mainstream news and video, to name a few, all in one swoop. One of the most powerful free online tools will give users a vast look at mentions across the web. Top keywords, users and sentiment are among some of the useful data this search engine pulls. Definitely worth a look for initial research if you don’t want to spend top dollar on Radian 6.


2. Hootsuite is a social media management system. This is has all the bells and whistles such as scheduling posts for Facebook and Twitter, keyword searches, Google analytics and url shortners (to name a few). This product recently switched to a paid version for users that are more than casually into social media. Bonus: I love its owl mascot!


3. Klout is fast becoming the currency of social media. I’ve heard rumors about Vegas clubs using Klout scores to determine eligibility for entrance. In any case, the data received from this site is greatly useful for gauging your current state in social media from Twitter to Facebook and even LinkedIn. I also enjoy the suggested follows for Twitter because they offer a better description of the tweeters than their Twitter bios do.


4. Netvibes helps users compile as much or as little data as possible into one dashboard. Have all your newsfeeds, social platforms and searches in one place that is completely customizable and free!
