I'd say some of those most under-utilized tools are those that help us to listen better. Everyone on social media has something to say, but how many are listening? I would say this means at the most basic, responding to @mentions on Twitter,  all the way to geocode searches for key words and setting Google alerts.  I'm sure there are even more great ways to listen that I am not even aware of yet.
