For a long time many people uses services like HootSuite to manage their social media accounts but always felt that something was lacking in the services being offered. Enter my new absolute favorite MUST HAVE social media management tool – SPROUT SOCIAL.
I can now very easily post and stay connected to all of my networks including Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and both my LinkedIn Profile and LinkedIn Company Pages plus you can connect to your Feedly account too. I also can see as people follow me, retweet me, comment, share and interact with me online in one lace – allowing me to follow back and comment and more without ever missing anyone who may have interacted to me on any of my social media channels – all on one screen.
Once you have an account they also have an amazing app for your cell phone so you can schedule and manage your social accounts on the go – all in one place instead of having a dozen apps on your phone going all at one time.
