This article is full of new tools, some of which I have heard of before.

1.  Feedly - best way to organize your favourite content

2. Buffer - the best way to share content on Facebook. Twitter, and LinkedIn - Similar to Hootsuite

3. Mention - track your name and business and get alerts in real time. This can be really handy to keep track of when people are trying to engage with you. It is important to answer back or the other user will think you are ignoring them. 

4. IFTTT - a better way to connect things together. If This Then That. 

5.Tweriod - figure out when the best time to post to your audience is. This is extremely important because you want to make sure your audience sees your content. 

6. Storify - easiest way to turn social media posts into a story. You can curate content and create a story.

7. Bottlenose: ultimate intelligence for your social networks. This is a very powerful new tool that links into any social media platform you chose and gives you "intelligent, real-time insight" about whats going on with your online marketing campaign. 

Bottlenose allows you to do many things, the 3 mentioned here are:

- Find the most shared links amongst your friends and followers.

- Track RSS feeds right inside your social media dashboard.

- Analyze, target, and engage in real-time (especially valuable for marketers and salespeople).

This is definitely one I want to try. I have never heard of this tool but it seems very interesting and valuable.

I am going to take a look at all of these tools. Mention and Tweriod seem particularly interesting!

The tools I found most interesting in this article were:

- EditFlow is a very cool tool if you are working with WordPress. This tool is a plugin to WordPress that allows you o manage your editorial team more efficiently and effectively. 

- ArgyleSocial allows you to many things, putting features from different tools together in one convenient location. Some of the features include team-based collaboration and publishing, a dashboard to monitor Facebook and Twitter, as well as delegate tasks to team members, and a simple reporting of ROI on your marketing efforts.Problems: seems like there isn't enough analytics and not enough options of social media platforms to connect to. What about LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google+, Instagram, etc.?

- TweetLevel allows you to measure on influence of a tweet. You can look up specific hashtags and determine exactly who you should be following, you can measure a followers social influence, you can monitor the buzz around a certain topic to see if it is worth paying attention to or not, and you can find related phrases around your topic.

-TwitterSearch seems like a popular one. It has many analytics for Twitter, which is great, but unfortunately it is limited to this platform.

- SocMetrics helps you identify influential people, figure exactly who they re and why they are seen as leaders, interact with a select list of influencers, and monitor the campaign.

- Ice Rocket is the first top I've heard of yet that helps you search across the social web AND blogs.This could be a very useful tools for bloggers! 

- Page Level = analytics for Facebook.
