Facebook, blogging, and even the internet -- it cannot be denied the digital era has certainly provided a robust ecosystem for it to flourish. After all, the internet doesn't just connect computers, it connects people, right? Regardless, the web will never be the same.
As a devout media technologist, I love following the new tools of emerging platforms -- and nowhere can you get a better sense of this game-changing social ecosystem than in its tools.
There are tools to monitor your social buzz, schedule your tweets, share your photos, build your Facebook tabs, and so forth. It's absolutely amazing just how many platforms, apps, and sites are dedicated to this medium. While researching this article, I literally uncovered hundreds (if not thousands) of tools available ranging from free to highly expensive, from tools that help you tap into dozens of social networks, to tools that perform the most specialized, niche task on a single feature of Facebook. Crazy!
So, the following list of social media tools is just a fraction of what's really out there. Rather than trying to tackle the unwinnable task of cataloging every social media tool available, this article will highlight the types of tools being developed out there, so you know what exists and what might be useful to you. That being said, there's almost two hundred tools for your perusal.
