Guidelines to Social Media 2013

Respondents to our social media survey told us about their 58 most useful tools that they use at work or in community activities. Most of them are free, or elements are free. We have tried to organise these around what they are used most for. However some of them have more than one function or offer more than one service, and people use them in different ways.
