Best new social media tools for the social-tech savvy

I recently presented a session at ASAE’s Marketing, Membership and Communications Conference and had just 30 minutes to provide recommendations for all kinds of social media tools for the business professional, so I had to pack a lot into a brief period of time.

Some are free, others are paid, some I have tried personally, others were recommended, so your mileage may vary; however, this list is crowdsourced from social media practitioners in the field, and there are sure to be some you have not heard of yet.”

Try these out, and let us know if the comments how they work for you. And even better, add your own recommendations!
