Out of the hundreds of apps to help you grow your social media following, I have rounded up the best and most user-friendly scheduling applications out there!

For Facebook:

Facebook! What a lot of people don't know, is that Facebook has a built in scheduling software. You can't beat going straight to the source! It's so simple, and easy. Once you are on your page and writing a post, click on the little down arrow next to "Publish" and click Schedule! It will give you the option to pick the exact time, date, etc of your post. 

 

For Twitter

Twuffer Now, I know Hootsuite has such a huge following, and yes it is great. However, a lot of the time I think that it's way overcomplicated. They offer so much, but if you're looking to sit down and just knock out some tweets, use Twuffer. You literally sign in, and just write a tweet, pick the day, and you're done. Straight onto the next one. It goes so fast, and is really great if you're low on time. However, the only downside I have found is that you can't really add in images. You can put the link to the image and twitter usually automatically pulls the thumbnail image but its not 100% guaranteed. 

 

For Instagram

Wait what?! You can schedule instagram pictures!? Yep! You sure can, however there is a catch. If you use the app Latergramme you can schedule your instagram posts in advance. This means put in the edited picture, caption, hashtags, the works. But, you set the time and day, and at that time the app notifies you to "swipe" their notification and it automatically uploads your content to instagram but you have to hit publish. Instagram does not allow third party sources to post on your behalf, but if you have a set sequence and want to be notified and reminded to post a picture at a designated time, this is a great solution. 

 

Now, there are apps to help you schedule on Pinterest and Tumblr, but do we really need those? Maybe. If you are a blogger it could be helpful to have your content scheduled to go up every once in a while, but I find that Pins do better when you are posting in the moment. 

Do you have any favorite social scheduling apps? Do you even like to schedule?! Let me know in the comments below!
