I’ve been working a bit lately with ThinkUp and am so impressed with it! If you haven’t heard of ThinkUp then you will be hearing lots more as this is a really useful (essential?) free app/Tool should you be active in social media.
What is ThinkUp?
If you use Twitter, Facebook and/or Google+ then this is the Tool for you. In the most basic terms, ThinkUp collects all your Posts and updates from Twitter, Facebook and/or Google+ and allows you to search or display your social ‘presence’ in all sorts of clever ways.
ThinkUp is free to install and use and is recommended for people who are active on social media and who have 1000 followers/friends or more. The app development is let by a start-up non-profit focused on helping government get more from Social Media.
How to install ThinkUp?
If you’re familiar with installing WordPress, Drupal, Magento or any of the other LAMP based Apps then installing ThinkUp is a breeze. Just as with many of these other CMS type tools you’ll need a MySQL database. Just follow the instructions on their Home Page or contact me and I’ll assist.
Need ThinkUp Help?
From what I have seen with ThinkUp it is going to be extremely popular. I also think that the open nature of its coding will enable all sorts of awesomeness to come from the app. If you want some help with ThinkUp then please contact me as your Social Media presence will be so much more valuable with ThinkUp.
There is a lot to do with Social Media that is quite simply a waste of time. ThinkUp however is a very valuable tool for anyone concerned with Social Media analytics and performance.
