Free Social Media Management 4

Looking to save on the pennies and find some free social media management? You’ve come to the right place...

While there are hundreds of amazing social media management tools in the world, we’ve picked out some really great tools that are 100% free. While many of the following options do have paid plans and the ability to upgrade, our case in point here is that social media management doesn’t have to be expensive.

Some great free social media management tools...


Tweetdeck is Twitter’s own tool for community management. With the ability to separate your incoming Twitter activity into easy and manageable streams, you’ll be able to keep your eyes on multiple hashtags, users, mentions, and phrases.

For those of you who enjoy a good ole Twitter Chat (who doesn’t), participating or hosting a Twitter Chat can become 1000x easier with Tweetdeck and its ability to keep the hashtag front and centre, while keeping an eye on mentions and relevant pages. Free Social Media Management 800

Landscape by Sprout Social

If you’re determined to make your social media presence a meticulous work of art, then this tool is for you. As a way to resize images for specific social channels, Landscape ensures that your social media content will never again be blurry, pixelated, or unprofessional.


Whip up some social media graphics in the blink of an eye thanks to Canva. As an easy way to create perfectly sized and impressive looking graphics, those lacking a design department can fake it ‘til they make it.

With the ability to select your intended graphic type (such as Facebook post, Instagram post, etc.), and then enter any images, logos, or text, you can quickly make some company branded graphics will little-to-no design skill. Free Social Media Management 1

Manage Flitter

Manage Flitter is another tool for community management on Twitter. However, while TweetDeck focuses on engagement and organisation, ManageFlitter allows for the following / unfollowing of particular accounts. Those of you who do this manually will understand just how time consuming (and extremely boring) this can be.

Although ManageFlitter’s free plan has some limitations, it does allow you to set rules to categorise and separate your following (or Twitter accounts in general) and then execute unfollowing or following actions on your behalf.


And lo and behold ContentCal, the ultimate tool for planning your social media content (apologies, we are bias). Our free plan allows for 1 user and 1 calendar with connections to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn for automated publishing. With helpful organisational features including channel notes, a post backlog (for storing notes or draft content), monthly view, and placeholder posts, you have everything you need to master your social media plan.
