Social analytics provider Quintly announced the release of what it is calling competitive feed analytics, which allows users to compare the rank, reach and back-links of their blogs and websites on Facebook and Twitter to those of their competitors.
Building up a following on Facebook is an intricate balance between posting things of interest, fostering engagement and giving your followers a reason to keep you in their News Feeds. It is a delicate house of cards — and the wrong social media wind can bring destruction. And like the Paul Simon song, “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover,” there are probably that many ways and more to drive all that traffic AWAY from your page. Let’s explore a few that you may be missing:
Social relationship infrastructure provider Sprinklr, a Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer, has acquired influencer advocacy company Branderati, and Branderati CEO Mark Curtis will join Sprinklr’s New York office as a general manager of its advocacy business unit.
Instagram introduced advertising last November, and now the Facebook-owned photo- and video-sharing network is rolling out tools for advertisers that will allow them to gauge the success of their campaigns.
The debate over the importance of likes on Facebook for brands hinges on several factors, and the take from SocialCode, a Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer, is that brands and agencies must determine whether those likes have “lifetime value” before taking the steps to acquire them.

Facebook, as you’ve probably seen, has been a boon to viral sharing site Upworthy. But has the Facebook News Feed algorithm now shifted against it? What happens next you have to see to believe. WhoIsHostingThis.com compiled an interesting infographic illustrating the history of the Facebook/Upworthy relationship.
When Facebook page administrators monitor the performance of posts on their pages, they tend to focus on likes, comments, shares and reach, but ShortStack CEO Jim Belosic urged admins not to forget about post clicks, and even other clicks.
Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer and digital marketing software provider Offerpop is now integrated with social relationship platform Hootsuite, and access to Offerpop is available via the Hootsuite App Directory, the two companies announced Tuesday.
It seems like everybody is getting active these days — well, socially active, at least. So it follows that depending on your political viewpoint or social leanings, you might be supporting a lot of different causes from social sites like Facebook. And if you aren’t supporting any causes on Facebook yet, you’ll likely be surprised to know that you have more than one option to do so, and it’s kind of confusing to sort out, so I’ve done the work for you.
