Social Mention – a Real Time Search Platform

Real-time search is what everyone talks about and looks for nowadays. Are you not satisfied with usual organic search and want to have the latest news only in your search results? Try Social Mention search.

“Social Mention is a social media search platform that aggregates user generated content from across the universe into a single stream of information”.

The number of social media monitored by Social Mention is rather big – more than 80 including the most popular like Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, YouTube, Digg, Google, Yahoo, WordPress, Technorati, etc.

Social Mention search is not very fast, but the results you get for every query are really up-to-date and rather relevant. Results can be sorted by date, source, and post rank; you can view results for a specified time only. As well as in Google, you can apply phrase search (“your query” – in quotes) to narrow your search and get the most relevant results.

Social Mention also provides social media alerts. They are much like well known Google Alerts, but for social media – free daily email alerts on selected search phrases. You can also subscribe to the RSS feed for mentions of certain keyword and save your search results as CSV\Excel file.

Besides, you can get a kind of analysis of your search term popularity – you can see strength, sentiment, passion and reach values for each query. Also you’ll see the info about average time per mention, last mention time, unique authors, retweets, top keywords, top users, top hashtags, rank of the posts that mention your search term and sources where your term is mentioned most often.

Maybe, search results provided by Social Mention sometimes need to be more relevant, but I like the idea and believe  that Socialmention.com is a good implementation of real time search idea and it will be improved in the future.
