    Which tools for managing social media do you use?

    Why?

    Personally I'm using Hootsuite as well as a couple of other things to manage multiple accounts on Twitter.
    Instagram still doesn't allow 3rd party apps to do much, so I haven't bothered with any of them...

    I was wondering, does anyone know of a blog calendar that lets me see easily, as to what I have scheduled for when? I am presently using the one on Wordpress, but, it appears that I can only check what is scheduled, when I am adding something else.
    Thank you.

    I use buffer for scheduling, because I found it easier to use than hootsuite. I use Crowdfire for twitter user management. Both are using the limited free accounts because I have no money :)

    What does Crowdfire do exactly? I'm not familiar with it

    It shows you who followed & unfollowed over the past number of days.

    You can follow 25 people and unfollow 100 daily with the free service. You can identify inactive followers.

    You can also search for accounts by keyword or look at the followers of another twitter user. It also works with instagram afaik.

    Oh interesting. Is that a desktop or mobile app?
    I've been using SproutSocial and a few other tools, but more for other things :)

    Ah ok thanks. Apparently I signed up for an account at some point in the past, though I hadn't logged in for a LONG time :)

    i once had a look at the apps connected to my Twitter account. There were a lot. I don't remember what half of them are for! :)

    If you don't know what it is remove it :)

    It's on my todo list :) I need to go through them to see how many may actually be useful. i tend to check out too many free tools ...

    Well the reason I raise it is that some apps change hands etc., so you can end up in a situation where your a/c is compromised without you even realising
