Best 20 Social Media Scheduling Tools to Try in 2022! (Tried & Compared)

. 18 min read

There are almost 5 billion social media users worldwide in 2022. This means more than half of the world's population uses social media.

On the other side, the popularity and huge traffic on social media platforms show there is always a "right" audience for everyone, and it really doesn't matter for what purpose you're using social media.

You may want to showcase your professional identity on platforms like Twitter, promote your products/services, be an influencer and start making money online.

With its gigantic daily traffic, social media always has something for everyone. If you're especially using social media for marketing purposes, it offers extra opportunities for you.

Nevertheless, it goes without saying that there's always a cut-throat competition where there are green Benjamins. And like any other business, social media has its rules to succeed.

Among the rules, being active on social media and creating unique content are the two aspects that stand out the most. I'm sure you're now saying to yourself we already know these two are necessary to be successful and make the most out of social media.

Yet, the thing is, we simply don't have time to spend on being constantly active and sharing creative content on social media.

At this very point, social media scheduling tools like Circleboom Publish come into play and help us hit two birds at once. Social media scheduling tools allow users to plan their post schedules in advance.

Scheduling helps users settle down a regular posting calendar, which usually favors social media platforms' algorithms. They can easily set their post calendar and gain more and more followers over time.

However, there are tons of social media scheduling tools on the market, and it's so difficult to find the most suitable one for you.

Therefore, I wanted to share the best 20 Social Media Scheduling Tools that will boost your social media performance and save you the trouble of spending long hours on different platforms.

Let's get going!

The Best 20 Social Media Scheduling Tools to Try in 2022

1. Circleboom Publish

Circleboom Publish

Circleboom supports Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Google Business Profile, and TikTok (soon).

TRY CIRCLEBOOM PUBLISH

Circleboom Publish is the best social media scheduling tool if you want to manage multiple social media accounts across different social platforms. It offers scheduling services on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google My Business (GMB), and (very soon) TikTok.

With Circleboom Publish, you can share posts right away or schedule your posts for a later time and date. You can also utilize the queue scheduling property on Circleboom or save your posts as drafts.

If you want your posts to be shared on a regular basis, all you need is set time intervals and automate your photos, and the rest is on Circleboom Publish!

By the way, I'd also like to add that Circleboom Publish has key features like Google My Business Integration and Twitter Thread Maker that not many other social media management tools have.

On the other side, the features of Circleboom Publish include but aren't limited to scheduling posts. It's also a great content creation tool. As a super extensive content creation tool, Circleboom Publish offers:

  • Built-in visual content tools, Canva, Unsplash, and Giphy.

Using these tools, you can easily create eye-catching and appealing posts that will attract visitors and boost your impressions and engagements.

Circleboom Publish asks about your favorite topics and gathers/curates the most esteemed & updated articles on them.

Afterward, you can schedule posting times for these articles or post them in a queue. That way, you can always keep your accounts evergreen & active with no effort!

Moreover, Circleboom Publish has the  "auto post from RSS feeds" feature to automatically share the most updated articles across different social channels.

Last but not least, Circleboom Publish has an "image alt-tex add" feature for you. Alt-texts are highly important for your posts to reach larger audiences. Therefore, while scheduling your posts on Circleboom Publish, always add alt-text and make your posts more SEO friendly.

2. Buffer

Buffer is one of the best social media management tools with advanced scheduling features
Buffer

Buffer is a marvelous social media scheduling tool. It's intuitive and trusted. Big corporations like Shopify and Spotify trust and use the platform.

Buffer aims to provide services for users to build their audience and reach a larger audience on social media. In this respect, Buffer offers users advanced scheduling features on platforms, Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.

You can manage all your accounts in a single, user-friendly dashboard. Plus, with Buffer, it's dead simple to post your content to your social media accounts. All you need is to log in and manage your entire channel set in a simple dashboard.

However, as the cons of the tool, I'd like to remind you that Buffer Publish has no Twitter Thread Scheduler like Circleboom Publish. So, take this issue into account while making your choice.

That is because, according to a study by Buffer itself, Twitter threads get more impressions and engagements than single tweets with a link.

3. Hootsuite

Hootsuite is a very effective and popular social media management tool
Hootsuite

Hootsuite is one of the most functional social media scheduling tools on the market. It allows you to schedule posts, provides access to detailed analytics, and monitors specific keywords.

Moreover, being different than other tools, Hootsuite is suitable for teamwork. So, if you're a big team and need to manage your social media accounts as a team, Hootsuite.

This makes HootSuite particularly suitable for medium and large businesses. You can give different permission levels to each team member. Subsequently, you can easily control what team members can access.

In addition to Hootsuite's advantages, you should know in advance that its interface is outdated and it costs much more compared to tools like Circleboom Publish.

As a final drawback of Hootsuite, it should be noted that Hootsuite does not allow you to schedule Twitter threads. Therefore, this issue shouldn't be overlooked for organizations using Twitter as their primary advertising channel.

4. Later

Later is an effective social media scheduling tool.
Later

Even though Later supports scheduling on various platforms like Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest, it's famous for its Instagram-oriented features.

The reason is that Later started out as a humble Instagram scheduling tool and over time started supporting more social platforms like Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter.

On the other hand, Later stands out with visual-oriented features. If you want to be more active on platforms like Instagram and Pinterest, it's a suitable tool. But, if you also want to get detailed and advanced analytics services about your social media performance, it may not be the best tool on the list.

Still, Later has loads of pre-made templates you can use to create attractively and chasing visual content. The templates save you from the trouble of constantly producing original content. Besides, they help you never run out of content ideas.

This is highly critical because having a never-ending tool that helps you create original & steady content puts you ahead of your competitors.  

Lastly, considering the charge you pay per social channel connected, Later seems cheaper than tools like Hootsuite. However, there are more convenient options like Circleboom Publish.

Plus, some of the price plans of Later limit post number, while it's unlimited for Circleboom Publish.

Therefore, while making up your mind on the tool you'll buy, I suggest you check the two aspects below:

  • How much you'll pay for each social channel you'll connect
  • If there is any limitation on posting per social profile

What's more, SocialPilot has a post analytics feature for all the pricing plans except "Base." This feature is important when choosing your social media scheduling tool because it gives you critical insights into your performance metrics, like impression and engagement rates of your posts.

What's more, SocialBee has an easy-to-use interface. It enables you to add, organize, schedule, and share your content on various social platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.

On the other side, SocialBee has two quasi-key features:

  • Auto Post From Rss Feeds
  • Social Inbox

However, SocialBee has not Twitter thread scheduling feature, which is bad for those who predominantly use Twitter as their favorite social media platform.

Lastly, SocialBee is quite affordable. As such, it may be particularly feasible to choose SocialBee for low-budget startups and beginner sole proprietors.

9. Iconosquare

Iconosquare is a well-known social media management tool with advanced analytics features
Iconosquare

In fact, Iconosquare is known for its advanced social analytics features. However, the reason why it made itself on the list is that it is also a great social media scheduling tool.

On the one hand, Iconosquare offers you highly in-depth social analytics for your social media accounts. On the other hand, it helps schedule your Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter posts and monitor the comments on your Instagram and Facebook posts.

So, with Iconosquare, you can schedule your posts and track their performances along the way. Keep in mind that Iconosquare also provides service on TikTok.

However, there are two important drawbacks to Iconosquare:

  • Its customer support is not so good
  • It does not have Google My Business and Twitter thread scheduling features.

So, if you're a local business that wants to make the most out of Google My Business, Iconosquare is not a suitable tool for you. It's surely the same for those who have a Twitter-focused social media strategy.

NapoleonCat

NapoleonCat is another well-known social media scheduling tool. From scheduling to social media analytics, it offers everything you need for social media management. Plus, just like Circleboom Publish, NapoleonCat has Twitter thread scheduling feature.

Apart from scheduling features, NapoleonCat has a social (aka unified) inbox. Using this amazing feature, you can easily check comments and messages from all your social media profiles in a simple dashboard.

So, you don't need to spend long hours on different social platforms to manage your inbox if you have NapoleonCat.

What's more, NapoleonCat is good for teamwork because it offers loads of collaboration-oriented features.

However, there are three issues problematic with NapoleonCat:

  • Its interface is outdated
  • It doesn't have the "auto-post from RSS feed" feature
  • It doesn't provide the queue feature that enables users to recycle their posts over and over again

Lastly, I need to add that NapoleonCat is notoriously expensive. Its price per social channel is much higher than scheduling tools like Crowdfire and Circleboom Publish. So, if you're especially a small team, the price plans may not be suitable for you.

On the other side, ContentCal provides integration for loads of apps that allow you to post on all your social media channels. Plus, ContentCal offers social media analytics service for users to track their social media performance.

However, there are two issues that come out as the drawbacks of ContentCal. ContentCal doesn't:

  • Support as many platforms as other scheduling tools like SocialPilot and Circleboom Publish.
  • Have the "queue" feature to keep your profiles evergreen
  • Have the "auto post from RSS feeds" feature to post automatically from your favorite websites.

Still, ContentCal comes with an excellent planning feature. It enables you to plan for posts ahead of the year for scheduling.

If you've got a hectic and chaotic lifestyle, this super planning feature can help you greatly. That's because scheduling your posting calendar once or twice a year may be more than enough to keep your accounts active for the entire year.

Lastly, it's important to note that there are more convenient tools than ContentCal for similar services to be provided. So, you're recommended to keep this in mind and make your choice accordingly.
