Hootsuite is a social media management system geared toward brand management, or users looking to engage on social media in a big way. The online service makes it easy to schedule messages on a variety of social networks, and will also track the progress of various social initiatives to determine its success (or failure). Hootsuite works with a large number of social networks, including Twitter, Facebook, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, and the Chinese microblogging site Sina Weibo. Hootsuite is free, though paid plans with more advanced functionality start at $8.99 per month.
