  1. I use buffer and can vouch for it. Simple and free which is a big pus. Very reliable as well. I am thinking about trying HootSuite or CoSchedule in the near future. For now, Buffer is brilliant.

    Perch seems to be very interesting. I am going to try it now. Thanks for a nice list.

  2. Nice list guys. Perch is new to me but definitely will try!!

  3. Hi Ahmad,

    I used Buffer and don't know why and when I left using it now. May be I thought using too many automated tools might not good at that time. But I use Hootsuite widely. It's browser extension helps me a lot and its very handy. You should give it a try bro.

    You're welcome and return thanks to you for sharing your thoughts about them.

    Happy blogging!
