15 Free Tools To Monitor The Social Media Sphere (Part I)

As an e-Commerce guy, what would make my life easier when looking for specific data and news? How can I find short, to-the-point information when writing my next dealer blog post about model XYZ? And last but not least, who is actually talking about our cars, the automotive industry and/or our dealership right now?

These are the questions that inspired this post on the 15 free tools I use to monitor the social media sphere. Enjoy!


First 5 Free Tools for Using Social Media Like a Pro (Part I of III) 

OMGILI: Stands for “Oh My God I Love It” – will track a keyword throughout several social networks. This tool has the capability to share results on Facebook and Google+ as well. It also shows further comments of threads and responders.


VJ’s comment: “A very thorough research tool for an advanced user!”

Oh My God I Love It - omgili

WordPress Search: This tool is an enormous help for finding other blogs writing about your cars, models. It provides very good insights about who to mention in your next dealer blog post.

VJ’s comment: “What should I say? Like a great, red wine – rich bouquet, deep (color) – a classic !”


Addictomatic: This tool will share news and topics from networks and channels like Bing, YouTube, Google Blog Search, Twitter Search, Flickr, Blinkx Video Search,  Yahoo, Twingly Blog Search, Wikio and more. It’s great for writers who need more info on topics.

VJ’s comment: “One of my favorites! And careful – it’s adictive!”


SocialMention: This tool is like Google Alerts for the social sites. It crawls the social sources and displays where the information was gathered, which hashtags (#) are being used in combination for your keywords, sentiment and even the top-users using the keyword. You can even sign up for email alerts.

VJ’s comment: “Known as one of the first tools out there. Should be in everybody’s “toolbox”. Great metrics and stats!”


Ice Rocket: This tool is a so-called “buzz machine.” It allows selective keyword information of blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Images or BigBuzz. The results display in real-time through incoming feeds (like a news ticker.)

VJ’s comment: “Like it a lot! Will let your inbox buzzing.”
