Social media managing apps are a one-stop shop for monitoring and updating your social media accounts all in one sweet place. Thanks to the tech gods up in Silicon Valley, we can all take a deep breath and let these apps do their thang. If you’re like me and collecting apps like cute puffles is one of your favourite activities, this list will be better than jumping into a pile of crisp leaves.
HootSuite is the creme de la creme of social media management apps. You can monitor and conveniently schedule posts to Facbook, Twitter and others- for free! You can also track growth and engagement.
IFTT, or “If This Then That” is an app that lets you build automated actions, called “recipes”. For example, if you want all of your tagged Facebook photos automatically saved to Dropbox, you can easily make a recipe with IFT, and never have to do it manually #winning.
TweetBot is super popular for managing multiple Twitter accounts and following specific hashtags. Beware: it’s desktop only (eek!)
Zoho automatically scans your social media following, taking your followers’ location data into account. It then tells you the best time to schedule your posts.
