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
  • Agora Pulse
  • GaggleAMP
  • Sprout Social
  • Social Toaster
  • Crowdbooster
  • Lithium

What else needs to be on the list?

Hi JD. I think that looks like enough to be getting on with. I have to agree with you, it is an ongoing effort to keep up with every new social media tool that comes out. With that in mind I wouldn't recommend cramming in as many as you can. The quality of your reviews will suffer and you will get net fever and your head will be spinning.

After an absence of a year I have just returned a full time role in Internet social media and marketing and my head is spinning after only two weeks of playing catch up. So many new Social media networks and tools on a weekly basis. So from my point of view speaking as someone who is having trouble seeing the wood for the trees I look forward to reading your reviews.

Hi JD,

Great initiative!  Such a large collection of tool but I think it going to be a lot of work.  I find a few too that are uberVU and Engagio.May be you could check it out. From your list A new version of the Vocus Marketing Suite is due out late this year or early next year.
