If you're operating a social media campaign across several platforms (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc) This can really help, because it streamlines everything. Everybody is on the same page, and it tailors your organization to each user, so it's pretty easy to navigate once you have your footing. Really helps our social media manager out.

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is a good tool for brands or agencies who have a set list of competitors or subbrands that they are looking to do a monthly/weekly comparison of engagement metrics. When you have the brand account inputted, the data is shown in a visually tangible way and easy to comprehend.

Pros

NewzSocial

  • It's super clean and easy to use. From a client perspective, they like it because they can create their own news topics and share it with their internal audiences
  • The newest update lets you look at channels from other countries to see what current trends are globally
  • With the latest release, you can also post to LinkedIn and to groups on LinkedIn and Facebook – which makes it super easy for sharing content.

Cons

NewzSocial

  • It's a saturated market – there's a lot of programs like these, so while it's fun and easy to use, there's a lot of other apps like this. They'll need to innovate if they really want to stand out
  • Their website isn't exactly trustworthy – this is a weird complaint, but the site loads strange and doesn't look...legitimate, I guess. It's a hard sell with some people.
  • Loading is sometimes an issue – sometimes it's slower than others.

  • Unfortunately, when exporting data it is often hard to read in an easy format.
  • I've used other tools where you can get historical data once you put into the tool but Pulsar cannot do that.

Pulsar is not a complex tool by any means. The interface is updated and comprehensive, and I've used multiple tools in the past where the interface was very outdated and exporting data was often a difficult process since it was not well organized. The tool works well in visualizing complex data.

Pulsar

I think that Pulsar is one of the more updated platforms that I have used and the metrics exported/shown in the dashboard are accurate. I think that some tools report inaccurate metrics gathered from social media platforms due to the new APIs, something that often causes confusion and lack of clarity.
