Hands On with SocialBro - Twitter Analytics Made Easy
   

A couple of weeks ago I learned about SocialBro thanks to Mashable. SocialBro, made by developers based in Spain, promises to be an app to manage and analyze your Twitter following. At first glance, SocialBro delivers, especially if you are looking to use Twitter as part of your Social Business strategy. When you first launch the app, it asks you for your Twitter credentials and starts to download tons of metrics about your following. This is nice because it allows you to work with your data offline (perhaps while you are in a plane or without free access to wifi).

Once the data is downloaded you are taken to the Dashboard. In the dashboard you'll find things like Best time to Tweet, recent new followers, recent new unfollows, inactive followers, inactive friends, and much much more:


Some views are really useful to determine who to start following or who to stop following. Notice that each view also has a "share" capability. Clicking on Share triggers a tweet such as "I'm following 4 noisy friends: @xyz, @abc, @123, etc…". Overall, I think the view that I like the most is best time to tweet. SocialBro provides different visualizations to help you understand when a particular tweet will get maximum exposure. As you can see from the following screenshot, for me the best time to tweet is 4pm which is interesting because I mostly tweet in the morning.


On the left hand side of the dashboard, you'll find different search criteria and filters that can be applied to your followers and friends. Some of the filters are: time since last tweet, tweets per day, account age, etc.

SocialBro also provides insights into who your followers are, their timezones, their locations, the languages they speak, etc. SocialBro supports multiple Twitter accounts which is helpful for those that are managing multiple Twitter accounts.

Demo

SocialBro has created a demo and has shared it via vimeo. You can take a peek here:

Socialbro - Explore your Community from javier burón on Vimeo.

Things to come

SocialBro has announced that the following features are in the pipeline:

  • Analyze your competitors or other interesting profiles: copy their lists, follow their friends and followers, etc.
  • Analyze Twitter search results by users
  • Analyze any Twitter lists
  • Import any text list of users such as: conferences attendees, your app users, etc.
  • Add notes and reminders to the users
  • Tag users
  • Export to Excel (Export to PDF is already available)
  • Manage Twitter messaging campaigns

Get it now

If you are heavily dependent on Twitter or even if Twitter is part of your social business strategy, I think SocialBro is a must. SocialBro is built on Adobe Air so you can run it on your Mac, Linux, or Windows computer. To download, go here and sign up for the beta (it took me about 1-2 hours to get a beta invite).

As Seen in the Masters: Social Business is about Productivity, Innovation and Influence
Mon, Apr 14th 2014 7:11a   Luis Benitez
Over the weekend, IBM had a run of ads in print media and on TV with many different spots going throughout the Masters. The spots were around IBM's 4 big areas: Social, Cloud, Mobile, and Big Data. It was fun to hear from my friends and family who had seen the spots and mentioned how it was really hard to miss the IBM spots. The spots highlight customers and scenarios that are being Made with IBM.

Work is quickly ramping up as the product management team is working on the go to market activities for IBM Connections "Next". For example, yesterday I was working on updating the current IBM Connections Reviewer's Guide with information about the new release. I also submitted two abstracts for the upcoming Social Connections VI user group meeting, which I hope get selected, but more on that later!

Introducing File Sync for Mobile and More in IBM Connections 4.5 CR4
Tue, Apr 1st 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
A couple of hours ago, IBM Connections 4.5 CR4 was made available. This new cumulative release introduces various new features, two of which specifically for mobile that I would like to focus on. It's worth noting that these features are already available to our cloud customers so we are just wrapping these up and giving them to our on prem customers. First, push notifications alert you when you have a new to-do (as seen below in the image), when someone asks to join one of your communit [read] Keywords: connections ibm ldd lotus iphone mobile network server wifi

It's the last day of the first quarter and it's time to wrap up. I've been heads down working on various go to market activities for IBM Connections Next and even starting to think about what I'll say at the Social Connections VI User Group meeting in a couple of months (you ARE going, right??). Idea management continues to be a hot topic. You may already be familiar with some partners who have extended the ideation capabilities in IBM Connections (hint: I've talked about them before i [read] Keywords: connections ibm lotus

Tip: How To Share Links Using The IBM Connections Mobile App
Tue, Mar 11th 2014 6:12a   Luis Benitez
Various users have reached out to me asking how they can share links / pages as they surf the web from their mobile device with their network in IBM Connections. The trick is to use what's called bookmarklets. Follow these instructions to add the two bookmark lets to your browser and then you'll be able to quickly share links from your mobile browser to the IBM Connections Mobile app. I've written these instructions for Safari on iPad so these might vary based on your browser and/or mobile [read] Keywords: connections ibm lotus apple bookmarklet google javascript mobile network wiki

Communardo Further Integrates Confluence with IBM Connections
Thu, Mar 6th 2014 5:12a   Luis Benitez
I've talked about integration of IBM Connections with Confluence in the past. Communardo has created 3 new integration points to bring together IBM Connections and Atlassian's Confluence. These integration points are important for organizations that may be using both products and want to provide more synergy between them. This is yet another example of IBM Connections as a social layer, where you can embed Connections into other business apps allowing you to bring social to the end users.
