15 Free Tools To Monitor The Social Media Sphere (Part II)

Hello folks, it is Wednesday again and time for me to put on Part II of the series 15 Free Social Monitoring Tools. As I had stated in my first post, these tools were used by me during my "active" duty as an eCommerce Director for several dealer groups and I hope that you will find the tools #6 to #10 as useful as I did. Here we go:

Kurrently: Shows Twitter stream or the Facebook threads on keyword topic. Real-time showing. Good feature: You can control how fast or slow your stream strolling in.

VJ’s comment: “Especially useful for monitoring the "cloud" on Twitter!”

 Same Point: Providing an overview of Social mentioning’s but also real-time Twitter and Facebook. Further crawls through Blogger blogs and LinkedIn. Promises also to show negative mentioning’s but could not see really evidence of legit results. Possibly needs some more improvement on their end.

VJ’s comment: “Needs some improvement but listening also into LinkedIn is pretty cool!”

 Blog Pulse: The name says it all. Reflecting on Blog post results of the desired keyword search. What are the Blogs telling about

  VJ’s comment: “Focusing really on the Blogosphere and will surprise you, what actually shows up with the right keyword!”

 Twendz: Very interactive platform. Shows even the trend of searched word in real-time. Clean appearance. Allows immediate response to incoming tweet and direct linking to Twitter account. VJ’s comment: “Design is great and I love the small analytic section. Nice feature - Word Cloud!”

 Yahoo Pipes: One of the “oldtimer” in social conversation and news monitoring. Do not forget about this valuable tool. Shows even tags used in the upcoming search results with sources and which formats were used.

VJ’s comment: “Was one of the first tools I have ever used to see who and what is buzzing. Classy and nostalgic tool!”

 

...Please check back for next week Part III and another round of 5 Free Social Monitoring Tools!
