Easy posting, in-depth analytics and a plethora of feed options
More lightweight than the two previous offerings, Buffer lets users painlessly post links to Twitter, Facebook and Reddit. The extension is available for Chrome, Safari and Firefox, and appears as a box embedded in your browser.
As well as being easy to use, Buffer adds a link shortener that is particularly useful on Twitter, and has an innovative scheduling feature from which it takes its name. For those wishing to maintain a social media presence with minimal effort, this is for you.
Flint offers a similar service to Buffer, albeit in a less attractive interface. Users can post content, schedule tweets and shorten links without navigating a hefty dashboard. The premium version offers templates which ease up the process of posting, though whether it is worth the money is debatable.
This last app incorporates features from the dashboard and button extensions, offering you a comprehensive overview of your social media accounts and an easy method for sharing posts.
The dashboard interface is more compact than Hootsuite and Tweetdeck, but if anything more expansive in its scope. All the interactions from various accounts are rolled into a single column, with the option of viewing different content in separate feeds.
Though the interface is less intuitive than Hootsuite, the option to more completely manage your Facebook may be attractive to some, making this a viable alternative.
