The tools to measure social media and community engagement

If only it was that simple! But to make it easier, I've finally started compiling a list of the tools and resources for the measurement of social media and community marketing and engagement - ranging from free to paid options, and Web Analytics to Buzz Metrics.

It's in no way a comprehensive list, but as I was compiling material to add in to the MeasurementCamp project, I thought I might as well list it here and get comments and additions from some of the measurement mavens I know lurk in the comments!

I'm also debating whether the list would be improved by my personal opinions about the tools I've trialled and used, and those I continue to use - I'd be interested in peoples views for and against - although there is the caveat that I'm nowhere near the expert I'd like to be…

Anyway, comments and additions can be put in the comments on this post, the comments on the Marketing Measurement Tools page, or via email from the About page.
