5 Useful Social Media Apps That You Will Use



There are millions of social media applications that you can use to optimise your business. However, you won’t need all of them. The question is, which one you should use?

In today’s post, we will share five road-tested social media apps that might be helpful with your social media marketing.

1. Circloscope


In short, what does Circloscope do for you? Here is the ad copy, which was taken from the website:

  • Quickly and easily create circles of engagers from any Google+ post – those that commented, shared, and +1’d the post.
  • Create circles from those that engaged with the most recent posts of any Google+ profile, and those that have been circled by others.
  • Easily create circles of those that have commented on your event, and those that replied Yes, No, or Maybe.
  • Know exactly who is following you back and who isn’t, plus how active and popular they are. Unfollow by any metric you choose.

There is a free version that does everything the premium version does, except the mass adding & removing of people — so you don’t have to go in blind, though the it’s the mass adding & removing of people that’s the most compelling feature of this app.

2. FullContact


If you have terrible problems with duplicate contacts, bad merges and out-of-sync issues, then you should give FullContact a try. It allows you to merge duplicate contacts easily. It also enables to use the power of all your social media platforms to update all of your current contacts with their social media profiles, up-to-date contact info, and profile photos. You might consider the premium version, which costs either $9.99/month or $99.99/year.

3. Scrubly


If you are still hesitate to use FullContacts, you can try Scrubly as an alternative way of doing a power-wash of your contacts. It does the same thing as FullContact does, but it takes a lot longer. Plus, it is a lot funnier as they keep it charming and silly while the app goes through your contacts and social media accounts. However, when it’s done, everything is tidy, neat, and updated. The service is available for $19.95-per-scrub or $39.95 for a year.

4. Buffer


Buffer App is undeniably so cool. It makes content marketing automation easier than before. It can embed itself into your browser and all your images to easily share content inline with Reddit, Twitter, Facebook and and many more. You can also queue up lots of content that you can then share over all of your social platforms, including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Google+ as well as Facebook Pages, LinkedIn Company Pages, Google+ Pages, LinkedIn Groups and more. You can plug in all your RSS feeds and they can then get buffed into your Buffer queue. You can also use Buffer as a way to retweet from Twitter instead of that ugly and awkward “quote tweet”. Buffer does everything better, period.

5. GaggleAMP


What does GaggleAMP do? It’s like a social media list service. Gaggle is comprised of people who have subscribed to your social media feed. So, when people subscribe to your Gaggle, they can easily retweet the tweets you place into your Gaggle queue and share any of the LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google+ content you place into the queue. You can also automatically queue up all of your blog posts and articles via RSS. Plus, Gaggle allows subscribers to set up their Twitter and LinkedIn accounts to AutoAMP their content. It’s set up more for business than personal, but branding and sharing is the selling pont of GaggleAMP. Even if you don’t have a company, you can become a valuable content curator. Prices start at $50/month, but it’s really woth the price. GaggleAMP is a true social media secret weapon.
