    Hello.
    Hootsuite looks like a great program but it's too expensive, for me.
    Do you know of a free alternative to Hootsuite?
    Thank you.

    Buffer. It's free, and very easy to use. The dashboard is more user-friendly than Hootsuite.

    SocialPilot is 50% cheaper but it has it's cons. As far as I remember it doesn't work with Instagram and several other services

    Buffer is the one I use, and now that they acquired Respondly you will probably find a free or very affordable brand mention tool and Twitter customer service tool coming out early next year. The two as a combination are an excellent replacement for Hootsuite.

    I'll also go with Buffer, it has its free version which is good enough for managing a couple of social media accounts. You can also use IFTTT which supports a huge number of social media accounts and it's for free of course. :)
