I’ve been researching social media monitoring tools lately in an effort to simplify my life – I have far too many social accounts to efficiently monitor and track and I would hate to miss anything important. As it is, I sometimes don’t respond to Tweets in a timely fashion and it’s definitely not because my followers aren’t important to me.
So I’m asking you, the smartest, most wired and innovative people I know what tools you use and recommend. Are there any betas available? I’m particularly interested in free or very low cost tools in part because I’m cheap but this is a realm that changes so often and I want to be remain nimble.
Please share your favorites or even just monitoring tools you’ve heard good things about. I’m keen to learn all I can.
