I love year-end “best of” list so here is one that is actually useful and entertaining; the most-useful new social media tools of 2011:
SiteTrail.com. An easy (and free) way to track the performance of competitor websites.
Panabee.com. A domain name checker with a twist, helping you brainstorm new ideas based on URL availability.
FBsearch.us. Powered by the Facebook Open Graph API, FBsearch.us helps users search across posts, photos, people, pages, groups, and events without the need to login or have a Facebook account.
SkyGlue.com - Google analytics on steroids.
NameNinja.com - domain name brainstorming tool.
Panabee.com - domain name checker and inspiration provider
SocialSearching.info - Twitter and Facebook searching at your fingertips.
