G2 Crowd put those three platforms in its Leader category, which indicates a high customer satisfaction score and a substantial market presence. Sprout Social received the top customer satisfaction score — 96 out of 100 — among the 14 tools listed in the report. HootSuite’s customer satisfaction score was 93 and TweetDeck’s 60. The scores are all normalized to be relative to the other tools rated.

G2 Crowd ranked AgoraPulse, Sendible, Viralheat, Buffer and GroSocial in the High Performer category, which is made up of tools with lower market presence and high customer satisfaction. AgoraPulse had a customer satisfaction score of 94, second only to Sprout Social overall. Sendible’s satisfaction score was 76, Viralheat was 75, Buffer 73 and GroSocial 67.

G2 Crowd limited the report to tools receiving at least 10 reviews in its system, which currently tracks 85 products. In general, reviewers reported a high level of satisfaction for the tools in the report; on average reviewers said they were 85% likely to recommend the product that they use.
