Since it was purchased by Twitter and its interface was dramatically overhauled, TweetDeck just hasn’t been the same as it once was. And though we still use the service, we know there are some users out there looking for a new social networking management service. To that end, we’ve compiled the six best TweetDeck alternatives available now.
Each of these services offers the same functionality of TweetDeck, with some added benefits that we find particularly interesting. So read on, social media mavens, to see what TweetDeck alternatives the Web has to offer.
One of the original social media tools, Hootsuite allows you to post to your Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn accounts, as well as several others from an easy to setup and use interface. As with TweekDeck and Seesmic, Hootsuite puts an emphasis on what others are saying, offering you a series of columns for direct and personal messages, sent messages and a general feed.
Scheduling tools help you prepare posts ahead of time, while the analytics tool helps you create branded and printable reports about how well your social media campaigns are performing.
