Great comparision between the different social media monitoring tools.

I wonder if you could also have added Simplify360 on the same.

You should forward your request over to The Social Media Strategies Summit:

Good to see Brandwatch in your comparision list. And i have to admit, Brandwatch is the most  user-friendly platform i have ever used for social listening. Life becomes eassy in setting up listening profiles, creating rules based operations, customizing dashboard and so on.

To mention they have a great support team. Watch out for the new Brandwatch Vizia, it could be a game changer in social listening.

You might want to include Sprinkl in the social influencer category as well since our audience management is fairly sophisticated.

Disclosure: I work for Sprinklr :)

Hi Peter,

     How about Radian6? I would have liked to have seen that tool in your comparision list.
It is a used tool in many companies today

Thanks, Peter!

Yet, I wonder what's the story with the all-in-one suites, e.g. BuzzBundle? Are they worth attention?

Astute SRM is a strong all-in-one tool that continues to keep a relatively low profile and potentially the most comprehensive tool that is on the market today!

Dear Peter Trapasso,

Nice short list, but how about web2monitor?

From infospeed ( ), a social media monitoring agency from Cologne/Germany.

I would like to  see that tool in your final list. ;-)


Cheers & Thanks

Hi Peter,

Great list!

I’d like to suggest including webfluenz as well, quite an advanced and cost effective tool.

It was featured in the Top Social Media Monitoring Tool Report by Goldbach Interactive. It’s also been getting some great reviews.

In addition to Radian6 and Sysmos, you can also check out

Its a more cheaper alternative but just as effective.
