    BHW,

    Disclaimer: First off, I did a search on the forums with no results. I am also unsure if this is in the correct sub, posting it here here (black hat tools), Social Networks, over in the Lounge, or some place else. Mods, if I'm posting in the wrong place, could we move it to the correct forum please?

    --------

    On to the topic at hand. I'm finding it tough to manage each of my online brands: the multiple facebook pages, instagrams, twitters, youtube accounts, Google +'s, my email subscribers, dealing with my content generators and bloggers, etc. Having to log in and out of Gmail accounts (for youtube), Twitters, Facebook accounts (one for each page), and the email addresses associated with each account. I'd be awesome to have a platform with a master email and password, that allows me to go in and log in as "Brand A" and push out a picture to it's tumblr, twitter, facebook page & google+. Likewise, Brand A is ready to post a new article, so the service pushes a call to the contact manager to notify the subscribers of a new post, and pushes a notification to FB, G+, and the like.

    I found this post from 2010 with 21 different websites that seem to offer the service I'm looking for: http://www.toprankblog.com/2010/09/22-social-media-marketing-management-tools/, and I've also come across buffer (bufferapp.com). I'm not sure which one is the best to use, and a few seem to have been acquired &/or shut down.

    So my question to the members here is: What tool do you use to manage your (multiple) online brands?

    A combination of 4 browsers. Chrome, ff, opera, safari. Sometimes more like Camino. Use lastpass to manage logins. Other tools like social oomph, hootsuite and shell scripts. Google allows 3 concurrent logins if you set it up right. But there is not a lot of complete suites out there. You gotta find what works for you. A mix if those tools i mentioned allow me to manage 8+ unique fb accounts with about 40 pages. 15+ twitter accounts. Oh yeah virtual pc helps a lot.

    Redsheep, thanks for your reply. Currently, I handle it similar to yours - the 4 browsers with a password manager. What sort of tasks do you have your scripts set up to do? And I'll have to check out oomph & hootsuite, they seem to be one of the more popular social media managers

    Definitely check out hootsuite, pretty nice social media tool. I don't have a vast numbers of a/c's like you do, but do have a few and use the multiple browser trick, google concurrent login sessions and hootsuite.

    I have shell scripts to auto upload to YouTube when i drop files into certain folders. I also have a python script and some shell scripts to post to twitter. And little other random things that save me time.
