LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Google+…. the list goes on. Seems like a new social website pops up every other day (Pinterest is the current hot site, although it is unclear if there is any utility for lawyers – see analysis here, here and here). Finding time to use all the various social media websites is hard enough, finding additional time to track what other people are saying about you can be daunting. Luckily, there is a useful tool that can help: Socialmention.com. Its like Google Alerts for social media.
Social Mention describes itself as follows:
Social Mention is a social media search and analysis platform that aggregates user generated content from across the universe into a single stream of information.
It allows you to easily track and measure what people are saying about you, your company, a new product, or any topic across the web’s social media landscape in real-time. Social Mention monitors 100+ social media properties directly including: Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, YouTube, Digg, Google etc.
It is very simple to use. You can type any word or phrase into the search box, and the site returns a list of all mentions and references to that search term across numerous social networks, some of which won’t show up in normal Google search results. For example, you can search for your name, your law firm, a client, or a legal issue. The results come in real-time, provide a number of metrics, and categorize the references. You can even get an RSS feed of the results for a search term. Hopefully, you will find this website a useful tool for your social media efforts.
