Marketing: Top 15 Free Social Media Monitoring Tools Marketing

By Ruxandra Mindruta on October 25th 2017

The key to making the most of social media is listening to what your audience has to say about you, your competitors, and the market in general. Once you have the data you can undertake analysis, and finally, reach social business intelligence; using all these insights to know your customers better and improve your marketing strategy.

If you are a social media rookie, this list of the Top Free Social Media Monitoring Tools might come in handy. When looking for a tool, it’s a good idea to try a couple of them and choose the one that suits your needs best.

However, bear in mind that these tools are not an alternative to Enterprise-level tools, such as Brandwatch, which brought social media monitoring to a new level, offering a much higher variety of services, functionality, and in-depth analysis. It all depends on your needs.

That being said, let’s take a look at some of the best free monitoring tools:

1) Hootsuite

Hootsuite is one of the best free social media listening tools available and covers multiple social networks, including Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, WordPress, Foursquare and Google+. It is well known for its social media management functions.

The weekly reports and the excellent team management facility (delegating tasks, sending private messages) can be very useful when there’s more than one person handling the social media accounts.

2) TweetReach

TweetReach is a great monitoring tool for your business if you’re interested in checking how far your Tweets travel. TweetReach measures the actual impact and implications of social media discussions.

It is a good way of finding out who are your most influential followers, implicitly guiding you towards the right people you should be targeting when aiming to share and promote online content.

3) Klout

Klout is probably one of the most controversial social media monitoring tools. There are those who hate it and claim that its scoring system is completely inaccurate and that trying to interact with them is an impossible mission (a curious thing as they provide interaction-measurement services).

On the other hand, some people find it useful, as it measures influence through engagement on Twitter. It is a good means of keeping an eye on what people think about your brand, and to see what influences them the most.

Using the Klout score you can adjust your posts according to your target audience’s interests and increase your engagement rate.

4) Buzzsumo

Buzzsumo is a great tool for content research, but it also has an excellent way to analyze and monitor your Facebook pages. Along with metrics around each individual post, more interestingly is the ability to see what content performs best.

Buzzsumo will tell you what day is the best to post, how long your posts should be, what types of content works best, and monthly stats over time.

Socialmention is one of the best social media monitoring tools


5) Twazzup

Twazzup is great for social media beginners looking for a Twitter monitoring tool. You just enter the name you want to track and you instantly get real-time updates, meaning the most active top influencers, most retweeted photos and links, and most importantly, the top 10 keywords related to your search.

6) Boardreader

Sometimes we forget that social media doesn’t just include the big players. Forums and messaging boards count too. Boardreader allows you to search for specific terms on a range of different forums to see what people are saying about you.

Putting in a term will returns a list of all of these posts up to the previous two years, you can generate charts to look for trends, and compare terms against each other. It’s a great way to find conversations about your brand.

7) HowSociable

HowSociable is a handy tool for measuring your and your competitors’ social media presence.

A free account allows you to track 12 social sites, including Tumblr and WordPress. However, if you’re interested in 24 more, such as Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, etc. a pro account is required.

HowSociable’s approach to social monitoring is a bit different as it breaks down scores for different social media platforms, allowing you to see which social media platforms work best for you and which ones need further development.

8) Likealyzer

This free tool allows you to analyze your Facebook page. It gives you a good roundup of stats, while there’s some benchmarking and competitors options in the pipeline.

The tool from Meltwater gives you a page rank of their own creation called ‘Likerank’. You can also get info on engagement, likes over time, and your ranking against similar pages. It’s a very good tool to get a quick top-line analysis of your Facebook page

It’s a great tool for scheduling tweets and monitoring your interactions and messages, as well as tracking hashtags and managing multiple accounts. There is a web app, chrome ap, or mac app. The Windows app ceased functioning in April 2016.

It should be clear if you’ve got this far that the social listening tool space is a crowded one.

We’ve developed our own social media monitoring technology with larger, more sophisticated organisations in mind, but we hope this list for getting started is a useful foundation.

    Cheers

  • Angela Davies

    Just a thought but maybe you should look at buzzbundle from link assistant – http://www.buzzbundle.co.uk there is a free and paid version of it and when I checked it was the only tool I could find that monitored youtube and Google + , and it’s installed on your PC / mac rather than being pay per month cloud based etc

  • John O’Riordain

    Frankly speaking, I was surprised not to find BuzzBundle which I’ve
    been using for quite a while now. I’d recommend including it in the list
    as well.

  • oLger J. Simpson

    I would recommend CrowdRatio, is still in beta but the fact that they’re looking to incorporate business intelligence charts and advanced analytics to the reports says a lot of the kind of tool they’re building. http://crowdratio.com/

  • tracysestili

    But the issue is that no one wants to download something on their computer these days. They’d much rather run it in the cloud or from the website.

  • tracysestili

    I need a tool that monitors Facebook activity, specifically a post or image URL. But can’t seem to find one. Anyone?

  • MAGNIFIQUE !!!

  • Thanks.

  • Brad Neathery

    Hootsuite and Klout for sure! Missing a couple that I would highly recommend!

    -SproutSocial – analyzing and insight gathering. sproutsocial.com.

    -SocialRest – Tracks conversions made from social influencers engagements with your brand. socialrest.me.

    Other than that, great list!

  • daniel

    yeah these are great tools but i must say that miss leading your readers by saying free when it is not is unproffesional and the same as spamming in my book….lie to people for traffic andad payments…you should be ashamed

  • Glad you enjoyed it.

    Hi Daniel!

    Thank you for your comment. The tools I’ve recommended are indeed free, but there are always cases when free platforms also offer the option to pay for more features or in-depth insights, it all depends on your needs!

  • Hi Olger, thank you for your recommendation! The reason why we didn’t include CrowdRatio is because we only wanted to list the top free tools.

  • I agree with your point :) I prefer cloud service

    Would you please advise me which of these platforms is/are regarded as most compatible with the PIER System (Public Information Emergency Response)?

  • Ruxandra

    Hi Tom, feel free to request demos or reach out to these tools directly, there are plenty of options. If you’re looking for best crisis management tools, I’d recommend giving Brandwatch a try, our clients often use the platform for PR tracking purposes, and there several features specifically designed for crisis management, such as custom real-time alerts or our recently launched feature, Signals. You can read more here: https://www.brandwatch.com/2015/03/launching-signals/ :-)

  • Vincent Perro

    Good thoughts, but i think you should’ve added some more tools for Instagram. For example a web app for mass unfollowing – fast-unfollow.com, it can do up to 5000 unsubscriptions per day. Latergram.me is the best for scheduling posts so your media activity don’t stop even if you’re chilling by the ocean taking new photos. By the way statigr.am is now iconosquare.com, any names with insta- or – gram are now banned by instagram itself.

  • Ruxandra

    Great observation, Vincent and thanks a lot for your suggestions – I’ll be looking into Instagram tools in the near future, as it will be our core focus in an upcoming post.. happy to share that with you when it goes live.

  • ondi gusho

    http://emailbykeywords.com it is a social media management for free, unlimited accounts and posts

  • Digisha Patel

    No doubt this is an excellent list but I suggest SocialPilot because it’s a user-friendly as well as the great alternative to Buffer and Hootsuite. The best features of SocialPilot is scheduling post that allows to create schedules for posting on social media profiles like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.

    Branding: Personalized Facebook branding is possible
    RSS feeds: I can share post with 20 RSS feeds.
    Account group: Now I can easily create unlimited social media accounts for my post.
    Free plan: I can manage total 100 posts in a queue

    I have been suggesting to my collogues and developer as well.

    Hope this helps.

    Hootsuite, for example, is free. If you want more features other than the basics then you have to pay. That is normal.

  • Digisha

    Nice list of tools Indeed! except Hootsuite all tools are new for me. Also, I would like to recommend SocialPilot.co as it allows to schedule your post across Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pinterest. It is user-friendly and affordable as well.

    I do not know how the other instruments, but true statistics and analytics is the foundation for building a plan for promoting the social pages. Especially when you can analyze the competition, is not this cool? And I’m doing it in https://feedspy.net/?partner_id=1016, as it allows the tool to get all the statistics and analytics competitors, to compare the page and watch all the graphs.

    My business has so many variables that cookie cutter solutions don’t really work for me so I wind up writing solutions myself (if it’s SOMEWHAT reasonable and easy). I don’t remember how I found this guy’s website, but most everything discussed on this page- he’s written open source versions of. I’m now doing business with him and saving myself headaches.
    He’s does GREAT work- http://www.alreadycoded.com/

    Thanks Prince. That’s very true. A lot of bloggers I talk to don’t use either so it’s a good point about them not being highlighted too much. They do work very well. weebly games

    Hi Sarah, thanks for highlighting that Topsy has closed. We’ve updated the list by replacing Topsy with Twitonomy, another free Twitter analytics tool.

  • Very impressed with Google alerts, thanks for having that in the list. Are there any other social listening services like that where we can get alerts when particular keyphrases are mentioned in particular regions? Most of the social listening services show global results, which isn’t very useful.

    I’m looking for a tool that would allow me to monitor my vendors company from a negative standpoint online. Would you recommend these same tools in that capacity as well? Any specific one (regardless of free or not) that you recommend? I’m looking for a tool that will pull in any negative publicity that could impact my business. I have a ton of boolean search words that can be applied to limit the amount of noise I receive, just looking for the right tool.

  • A great tool for improving your enterprises and attracting potential clients is Yelp. You will be able to nip it in the bud quickly, and see anything negative being said about your business, when you monitor your social presence. Every business often tries to find ways to stand out to consumers in all the right ways, hoping to become the loyal choice of their client. Every business has its stock of disgruntled customers and internet is the easiest platform for your dissatisfied customers to complain about you. No matter how great a business is at client service, for every 100 satisfied customers, 1 will needs be offended.

    Actually i am looking for specific person’s content monitoring tool for facebook. Please anyone help me.

  • I agree with Daniel, Ruxandra is nothing more than a salesperson trying to help make sales for these various products – free is free and if you really want any of these social media tools to REALLY do the work for you – you have to pay – just be honest and not mis-leading.
    There’s no harm in being honest – everybody has to make a living
    and as i said above, free is free – some of these tools are NOT free tools, just not – a few actually are IF you don’t want much benefit.
    There is simply no free lunch in this world we live in – would be nice but then again, maybe not – if a product is quality, paying for it can be ok.

  • Nibha Chaudhuri

    Great list Ruxandra! Having used most of these tools (TweetDeck, Google Alerts, Social Mention, Followerwonk), I can attest to their perfomance value. Another tool that’s worth looking into is DrumUp-social media management and content curation. In terms of social media monitoring, I think in terms of content curation, DrumUp’s content discovery option is great since it tells you what kind of articles are trending, and it picks up articles from reputable sources. Check it out here https://drumup.io, and please consider adding it to your list (or future lists) if you find it interesting.

  • Hey, Ruxandra! Oscilloskope (www.oscilloskope.com) is a new player on the market. Oscilloskope monitors the whole web’s universe, social media (including REAL Facebook monitoring), forums, blogs, Reddit, Youtube and much more. Track and monitor your product, your name as an entrepreneur and see the conversations happening around you or your product. Cheers!

    One more tool that is available for monitoring that I’ve come across is Viralpep. One can manage all social media profiles in one platform using this tool; quite similar features with other tools like-
    Backdate Facebook Post Scheduling is available; which is quite unique.
    Bulk image posting.
    Post to multiple platforms with single click.
    Hash tag is supported.
    Connect to multiple pages.
    Twitter character counts for posts.
    Directly short your URL
    Timeline view; where you can simply see all of the scheduled post & can change if needed.

    I’ve been using Viralpep since last three months and its quite a decent experience for a middle-level agency.
