Thanks for compiling such a comprehensive resource! I can't wait to explore some of these sites.
I am looking for a basic, inexpensive social media reporting tool for new graduates and job seekers to use to monitor their social media status and reputation online.
Any suggestions gratefully accepted.

I am looking for a simple, easy to use, tool for new graduates and job seekers to take a look at their social media status. Any suggestions gratefully accepted.
Aug 12 Posted 7 years ago Great list of helpful sites.
I definitely need to check out google alerts to save some time.
May 6 Posted 7 years ago Hi Marc,
Thanks for this post. Lots of familiar, and not so familiar names. I'll take the liberty to add the name of the social media analytics firm I work for: linkfluence . We haven't been around as long as some of the big players here in the US, but we've grown steadily in Europe where the company is headquartered.
As a former PR agency executive, I tend to agree with Jim that one really needs to look under the hood, and spend time on the methodology used. I have always been leery about automated systems claiming millions of sources: as we know from Technorati's latest research (and one's own experience surfing around), most of the content out there is junk, splog and stale UGC (quantitatively speaking). Which means the more content you have, the more "noise" you have in your monitoring system, unless you invented the spam-removal magic wand :-)
I would contend that "less is more" when doing actionable research on social media trends and opinion. Unfortunately, "bigger is better" remains the prevalent notion at this point. The silver lining: as people go up the learning curve and experiment with social media monitoring, they tend more and more to value quality (qualification) over quantity.
May 6 Posted 7 years ago @Jim, Hey Jim, no offense, but you're a little late to the game with your comments..:) This post is a month old. You should be monitoring your brand better! Just kidding. and thanks for the value add.
May 6 Posted 7 years ago @Adam, sorry I missed Alertrank, going there now.
May 6 Posted 7 years ago I was pleased to see that you listed Google Alerts as your number 1 choice, Marc. We also think it's a great tool for reputation management. That's why we created our Google Alerts add-on at http://www.AlertRank.com. It provides a complete reputation management dashboard and reporting system for Google Alerts. I'd be glad to give you a personal demo. Maybe we'll make it into this list the next time. :) You can contact me at: adam at alertrank dot com.

May 6 Posted 7 years ago Wow! 67 SMM vendors! I wonder what the number would be if you included Europe and Asia focused companies.
I tend to think of this space in terms of 1) tool providers, like Techrigy, and 2) agencies or value added vendors. LOTS of confusion among buyers, but there are clear differences when one looks "under the hood" or based on what your application is....doing SMM well is a very complex technology challenge.
At a minimum I encourage clients to ask vendors:
- How they collect UGC?..do they have the "most representative set" of content from across platforms and across the 2.0 World.
- How do they store the content?...is it easy & fast to access and historical, what meta data is captured...
- What tools are available to make sense of the content that is relevant to me? ....can I drill down to what I want and export data, create charts, do trending...etc.

Apr 4 Posted 7 years ago @anonymous, FYI, where possible I have tried using every tool/site on the list. Bookmarking these does me or the users who read this, no good. And I have to disagree with you- IMO the last 3 weeks have not seen a plethora of posts on monitoring lists but should I be wrong, I challenge you to a) report on your findings or b) report on your thoughts on the ones that you have used
Apr 3 Posted 7 years ago @Axel Looking forward to that report, but also not surprised.
Apr 3 Posted 7 years ago Marc - great list. We used several of those tools during a research and had a variety of experiences actually dealing with the companies. One would think social media reporting tools vendors are also social media savvy people...
Will post results of the findings soon. Love to stay in touch.
Apr 3 Posted 7 years ago Marc - thanks for mention of Visible Technologies in your list. New vendors appearing weekly these days.
