Be a Social Media Spy

Posted on January 25, 2009

There’s a lot to be said about knowing what others are saying about YOU. With social media blowing up, more and more people are finding their voice on the internet. Sometimes, knowing what people are saying about you is hard to find, but now there’s a site that can help.

Spy can listen in on the social media conversations you’re interested in. You tell Spy what you’re looking for, and it searches conversations on Twitter, Friendfeed, Flickr, blog comments, Yahoo news, blogs, and Google Reader to find your keywords. I tried a few, and though it takes it a few minutes to get your results, the depth of the results surprised me - in a good way.

If you want to know what people are saying about you, your company, or your brand, give Spy a chance. I wouldn’t be a good social media coach if I didn’t also tell you to try to involve yourself in the conversations you find in the results. This will speak volumes about your company. One great example of this is the invoicing product Freshbooks. Every time I mention them somewhere (and my unhealthy love for the service), they seem to show up and comment. Maybe they’ll even show up here!
