Comprehensive List of Social Media Links: Tips, Tools, Apps and Guides

I’m on a LinkedIn Group called Social Media Marketing and for the past nine months or so, Colin Welch, a Training Manager at Silicon Beach Training, has been compiling a comprehensive list of Social Media Tips, Tools, Apps, and Guides. More than 733 people participated and the list is enormous — both in length and usefulness.

It’s nicely compiled here. And I have it below as well. My personal favorites: HootSuite to combine all your social media in one place, Just Unfollow for Twitter so that you don’t block out non followers, and Listorious for building specific niches of followers. I wouldn’t have known about any of these nifty tools on my own, but luckily, my good friend, Capability:Mom, clued me in. With this list, it’s like having hundreds of good friends advising you on their favorites which is helpful because the tips, tools, and apps seem to increase exponentially daily. What are your favorites? Please leave a comment!
