Who is talking about you?

Beth Kanter has posted a review of a new service called WhosTalkin.  Better still, the post also packs a very nice summary of the art of using listening tools for managing your online brand.  Beth, if you’re listening, thanks a bunch.   This is great stuff.

Beth’s Blog: How Nonprofits Can Use Social Media: New Listening Tool: Who Is Talking About You?

I listen in many different ways. Powerful listening is done through Radian 6, but I also have a Rube Goldberg like set up of RSS feeds from about 25 different sources that search on my name, my blog url, and the various misspellings. (I also monitor specific topics, tags, or keywords depending on what I’m researching) WhosTalkin would eliminate the time to track down the places to search and the hassle of setting them up in your RSS reader. You’d still need to hone your listening goals which are independent of any tool you might use.

  1. Thanks for sharing Beth’s post and in turn her Radian6 mention. It’s great that you are sharing highlights like this with your readers – like the post you also did on the top 10 free and paid social media monitoring tools and the rationale for picking each category.

    Cheers.

    PS. Love the title of your blog. Though having been on a horse a few times and having gone regimental in my Ancient MacPherson kilt for my wedding the thought of combining them makes me imagine the pain and agony of it šŸ˜‰
