Chapter 32. Productivity Applications

The companies highlighted here offer the widest range of features of any category in The Social Media Bible. These are all part of the wide range of "productivity tools." These tools include event management, VOIP telecommunications, peer-to-peer downloads, alerts, word processing and spreadsheets in the cloud, and even online surveys.

These tools are especially worth exploring as they are readily available, highly feature rich, and free. As you read each profile, keep in mind that its features and functions may or may not be right for your particular business. Use the Tool Scorecard at the end of the chapter to help you determine which of these tools qualify for further consideration when you begin creating your social media strategy in Part III of the book.
