  1. Nice post! So basically all the above mentioned is for monitoring own branding. Is there any recommendation to help monitor facebook, twitter or blog that are not of my own branding?

  2. Please also consider including SocialMotus. We’re a new, free social management tool platform for businesses and individuals. We’re building some innovative and powerful conversion tracking and social management features including priority messages inbox, targeted Twitter followers discovery, sales conversions by posts and much more. You can review it by signing up for free here http://www.socialmotus.com or emailing me for more information.

  3. http://coffeemarketing.co.uk  currently use paid for monitoring tools, but we are always interested in the free options, as often they offer plenty.
     
    What is interesting for me is that a raft of tools like these is begging for an aggregator tool that will pull the data from each and present it in a useful way.

  7. Great post! I think your input on the various social media monitoring tools is really helpful.
     
    Although your list of social media monitoring tools was extensive, I wanted to highlight a free tool called, “Buzz Equity.”  It’s a real-time social media search platform where you can search for mentions of a brand on an extensive list of frequented social media websites. A key feature of this tool is that it incorporates Chinese and Asian social platforms, so if you are interested in those markets you really must try it out. Anyway, the URL is: http://www.buzzequity.com
