We started smartBusinessPlanet in 2015 – and we’re learning a LOT as we go (and sharing what we learn with you).

But, what tools are you using in your business? Finding them is hard (which is why we’re starting our resources section! Find out MORE!).

This morning, I found this great article that lists several that we’re using.

I’m using Slack and Nuzzle but none of the others.

Which ones are you using? They mention Periscope competitor Meerkat… are you using either?
