In My Opinion

On March 15, 2010 I will be giving a presentation at the AAF – Madison Social Media workshop. My topic is social media tool selection.  I intend to talk about  social media  “sites” as tools.  These are the social sites that a company would use to implement a strategy.  The other tool is really the assessment and monitoring tool a company would select to find their starting point and monitor success, ROI and change. In an effort to collect some  of the assessment tool information in one place I will build on some of the great posts and research already done on the key blogs I follow.

As I try to follow the “free” first rule of thumb, I currently use Google Alerts, Scout Labs, Technorati and Addictomatic.  I also try different ones during a free trial period to make sure I know the difference between tools.

If you use a tool that has done a good job for your – free or paid – please share it in the comment section below.
