SocialMention: Like Google Alerts, For Social Media


As anyone who operates in this space knows, tracking and monitoring conversations around your business, artists, and blog is a constant must.

There are many tools out there, some good, some not so much. One site I have just become familiar with is called Social Mention; it is a social media search and analysis platform that aggregates user generated content from across the web into a single stream of information. Judging by a few preliminary searches, the site seems like an easy way to track and measure what people are saying about you or anything across the web's social media landscape in real-time.

At all times, Social Mention monitors 100+ social media properties directly including: Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, YouTube, Digg, Google etc. How do you keep track of all the conversations happening around you?

  1. NICE. Thank you for the heads-up Kyle, I’ve yet to find a social search service (non-paid) that really delivers the goods, always looking to try a new one out…

  2. I’ve seen a similar feature in Reverbnation called the Buzz Tracker which has been around for a while and works extremely well for bands, great to see this as a standalone. Great for tracking band PR pickup.

  3. @Justin – yeah the paid ones are ridiculously high price points. Both People Browser and Radian 6(best one) charges an S load a month. ($500+)
    I like using a combo of Collecta and twazzup.
    But nothing beats google alerts and for a few of the artists I work w/ boardReader and Backtype do wonders.
    Great post!
