Automating Social Media updates

There are many scenarios when it might be of value to update posts to social media accounts, such as adverts, competitions, or statistics.

What concerns us here is solely the ability to update the account of someone deceased. This will be of particular interest if you have been nominated as a legacy contact by someone, to ease the burden of  generating manual updates.

Using such tools is not necessarily free however: Below are some popular ones :

Hootsuite : multi-platform, free trial

LaterBro free, Twitter and Facebook only.
