My biggest time-saver has been using media management dashboard where I can manage all my social media profiles from one central place. At Buffer, we’re aiming to build a simple, clean, and intuitive tool to help with just this, and we’re so inspired by other dashboard tools like Hootsuite and Sprout Social. All are great options.

Benefits:

  • You log in once to manage everything
  • You can perform multiple actions in the same spot—sharing, scheduling, analyzing

Which networks it supports:

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+

Tools similar to Buffer:

Hootsuite, Sprout Social, HubSpot, Everypost

2. SumAll – social media reports

Once you connect your multiple social networks to SumAll, it’ll start pulling data and insights from your accounts, dropping the numbers into a central dashboard of analytics. You can then check up on these stats by visiting the app, or you can ask for a daily or weekly email with all the info.

3. Feedient – centralized social media streams

Still in open beta, this tool collects your social media streams and displays them all from within the Feedient app. Feedient uses columns to show each channel’s content, similar to how Tweetdeck organizes feeds and lists for Twitter management. You can rearrange and organize as you’d like, and you can engage with the shares and updates from right within the app.

Benefits:

  • Browse multiple social streams in one location
  • Quickly engage with the updates you want

Which networks it supports:

Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Tumblr, RSS

4. SocialHunt – digests of your favorite people’s activity

One helpful way to save time when managing multiple social accounts is to cut down on the number of times you must visit each network individually. One area of assistance here is pulling updates from your most valued accounts out of social media and into your inbox. Social Hunt connects with Twitter to give you the updates from people you choose—with digests sent immediately, every three hours, or daily.

Benefits:

  • Never miss an update from a user
  • Monitor a group of chosen profiles (people, brands, etc.)

Which networks it supports:

Twitter

Tools like Social Hunt:

Brook, Nuzzel

5. SocialCount – tracking social shares for your content

For a quick and simple way to check the share count of your site’s content, plug your main URL into SocialCount and see the results. SocialCount gives you the top shares for each unique article on your site, aggregating data from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Benefits:

  • Enter one URL, get all the results
  • See which articles do well across multiple channels without having to constantly monitor multiple social channels

Which networks it supports:

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn

Tools like SocialCount:

Shared Count, Quick Sprout, BuzzSumo

6. BuzzSumo Alerts – notifications when you & your content go viral

I’ve found great use with BuzzSumo in performing keyword and idea research for blog posts. Their Alerts tools has some great applications for managing multiple social media accounts as well. Instead of visiting each social network to spot mentions, you can tell BuzzSumo to email you any time your name or company name appears in highly-shared blog posts.

Benefits:

  • Easily keep up to date on the virality of your brand
  • Gauge the quality of your content as it appears on social media (without needing to even be on social media)

Which networks it supports:

Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest

Tools like BuzzSumo Alerts:
