2 New Social Media Management Tools You Don't Know About

This is a service for setting up Twitter contests/surveys/interactions in many different forms and also makes for easy generation of microsites synced up with those promotions. It costs money, but seems reasonable. It looks preferable compared to any of the similar Facebook solutions I have seen (Facebook requires contests to be run off of approved 3rd party app providers who all charge too much in my opinion).

I have been looking for something like Buffer or Hootsuite that also manages Google+ and this is it! It manages multiple Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Google+ accounts all from one login. This also has insanely cool tools for tracking social activity. Note that is the main aspect where you will start getting limited if you don't want to pay at least $50/month. However, the free plan is much more generous than Hootsuite as-is. It allows up to 15 accounts to be managed including multiple Facebook and Google+ pages from multiple different accounts.
