Best social networking dashboard?

9 replies
Hi folks,

Can anyone recommend a good social networking dashboard which unifies Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter?

Features I would really like are:

Desktop client
Scheduling of tweets/posts
In built analytics

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

    I have never used it but I have been told that hootsuite is pretty good. Social Media Management Dashboard - HootSuite

    There is a free and paid option. Paid is like 10 bucks a month

    We use hootsuite here in our office as well. We gotta go with a thumbs-up on this one.

    HootSuite is a good option for this type of requirement.
    I know SocialOomph is ok as well but the dashboard is kind of poorly laid out.
    I would imagine these are two of the best options currently.

    Thanks,

    I can only see a browser app for Hootsuit, is there a downloadable desktop client version?

      From what I understand no:
      Both Hootsuite and SocialOomph are both web based.
      HootSuite has an in browser and chrome add on you can use.
      I was unable to find any desktop client when i was looking for something like this a few months back.

      You may have come up with the next big idea for a wso. Be sure to cut us in with a nice percentage. LOL

        I am really sick of browser apps, they are always sluggish and lacking features.

        Also, think about this. Google Chrome with a single tab open accessing Gmail uses about 70mb of RAM for me. Outlook 2010, connected to my Microsoft Exchange account uses around 27mb of RAM, less when it is minimized to the system tray. Feature wise Outlook kicks the snot out of Gmail and it is doing it using 1/3rd of the system resources. Web developers seem to have lost the plot in recent years, forgetting that the idea of a web browser was to deliver light content in a thin client, not try and emulate desktop apps.

    I quite like Crowdbooster: Social Media Marketing Analytics and Optimization - though it is only for Twitter.
