I wouldn't say it's the best social media management tools. And it charges $49 a month (even more expense than my phone bill!!) as the social media channels offer free services to a their user. I don't know if the feature it provided really worth that much a monthly fee."

      "This is a nice solution for people who like to mull over their thoughts before sharing them. I like to use social media like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. I am very aware that my social media could be monitored by potential employers so being able to schedule posts at a later date is helpful. It gives me time to determine whether or not a thought I had a few hours ago is still acceptable to publish later. I can always cancel it. It's also nice to publish a post at a later time when I know my friends and family are home from work and can respond to it. Sometimes I find funny pictures I want to share but I know everybody is too busy to see it. I usually forget when I want to post something funny later. This is a great way to post it later without having to remember."

Some of the things it does is allows you to schedule when you post so you don't have to do it right away and can plan things ahead and when that time comes it will post for you at the exact time that you set. It allows you to reach and engage with followers, manage your content, can work with your team better and more fluently and plenty more."
