100+ must have #social tools and platforms for your social business arsenal

Whether you’re a professor of communications, a social media consultant or a blogger, this list of resources is for you.  The sheer amount of social tools are overwhelming. I test several new ones out each day. I’ve done the work and put in the time to make it easier for you.

Instead of keeping 20+ browser windows open simultaneously each day, bookmark or archive this list and reference it, daily. Think of it like a new or additional startpage housed in a tab next to your browser of choice.

As I come across exceptional, new tools I’ll add them to the list. This isn’t merely an exhaustive list of tools, they are tried and true tools and platforms I use in my job. Collaboratively these tools represent every aspect of a PR pros work flow. Sure, it would be nice if they all combined into one megasaurus platform that made our jobs a bit easier, but that isn’t an option right now. You’re welcome to embed this list on your site. Simply click the “embed” button at the top of the list. If a list isn’t your thing, I also created Pinterest board for my pin happy friends,  available here (there are a few differences in the lists as some sites were prevented from being aggregated on list.ly or Pinterest).

Hi Sarah!

 

Yes, I definitely agree your fave's list is for everyone no matter what kind of endeavor he/she is in to. We are an emerging crowdfunding platform that is based in Netherlands. At first, I was wondering if there is anything there in your post that can be of help to us. So glad to have found that there are truly helpful tools there for us. Thanks for coming up this post. Helps a lot!

Great list. What about tools like Viddy and Tout? For Pinterest, the Pingraphy and Pinfluencer tools are good too. Also, hashtracking is awesome! They are in closed beta right now but a request through their website will enable you to try the platform. Some of the best analytics behind hashtags I've seen.
