Mainly comprising of school & college students. Because one’s they start talking about the Internet; it’s a Social Networks name which comes first from their mouth. Currently it’s Facebook i.e. coming out from their mounts. It will take time for them to adjust with Twitter.

So as the Social effect is increasing day by day, the need for better management of different Social Networks has become essential. Here the 3rd party Apps comes into play. Look below for the Top 5 Apps which you should use to keep an Eye on Social Media.

#1 HootSuite


A few months back HootSuite became HootSuite5 with an elegant design, better use of coding specially when it came to the usage of HTML5 on the site. It’s tabbed & customizable functionality makes it very user friendly.

If you’re a newbie to Social Media then I would personally recommend HootSuite for better usage.

#2 TweetDeck


TweetDeck is another popular desktop client. HootSuite & TweetDeck more or less provide the same features. The difference between them is that HootSuite is a Web based client & TweetDeck is a desktop based client.

So for using TweetDeck you need to install the Adobe Air application since TweetDeck is developed in Adobe Air.

#3 Brizzly


Brizzly is a web-based app. It provides extra features like showing an Embedded video in a tweet, when a video link (Youtube) is added in the same tweet. Check out the new twitter preview & you will notice that a similar function was added in that.

You can also form groups in Brizzly & follow the trends therein.

#4 Seesmic


Seesmic applications ranges from an iPhone app to a web-based client. So it covers almost all the systems which are commonly used during work hours. Earlier Twitter used to promote Seesmic on our page, due to which it has gained so much popularity.

#5 Radian6


Radian6 might sound new. Though it doesn’t hold much power when compared to the above 4 mightly web & desktop apps. It is growing day by day. The main aim of Radian6 is to bond Enterprises with Social Media.

So which among the above you use to keep an eye on Social Media ?? Or Have I missed some imp apps which you use regularly ?

I like using and tweaking WordPress. Understrap, Tailwind, Bootstrap are a few words I would add to my Tech Profile. Besides that, I constantly observe my website's technical and SEO performance.

  6. Hi Mani, Thanks for sharing these apps list. I have a doubt in my mind. Hootsuite is premium right? How many sites can we manage with a free Hootsuite account?

  7. I’m really living in a different social climate. When I adopted my daughter I never expected approval and never felt like anyone approved. A lot of people were sort of neutral but a lot of people were mean and negative about it..
