Edgar vs. Sprout Social
Our fans tell us Edgar saves them hours a week – and doubles their traffic from social media. Naturally, we think you and Edgar would make a great match!
Here’s how Edgar stacks up to Sprout Social so you can see for yourself.
How is Edgar different from Sprout Social?
Like Sprout, Edgar allows you to schedule posts to be shared on social media (with support for Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook profiles and pages, and LinkedIn profiles and company pages). Edgar, however, has several major differences.
Edgar is all about simplicity – simplicity of design and simplicity of use. The user interface is clean and intuitive, making for a smooth and easy user experience, no matter your level of expertise.
It’s easy to log in and immediately see what updates are set to be shared in the upcoming days. With Edgar, you can effortlessly manage which updates you’d like to share and re-share with as much (or as little!) customization as you need.
Edgar also has comprehensive Help Docs and a super-friendly support team readily available if you run into any questions.

Your Workflow on Edgar vs Sprout Social
You add your content to Edgar, categorizing it for your library.
Edgar posts your update according to your category-based schedule.
Your update gets stored in your library. When every other update in that category has been posted, Edgar will post this one again, so it can be seen by a wider audience while you carry on, worry-free.
You write a social media update and copy it into Sprout.
Your update is posted on social media, then disappears from your sharing schedule unless you go back into Sprout and manually select that update to be shared again.
You repeat the cycle over and over, forever and always.
