“With Google+ now available to the public, the incorporation of Google+ into our buzz monitoring feature is essential in offering an all-encompassing insight and understanding of reactions across the leading social networks."
London, UK (PRWEB) October 07, 2011
CrowdControlHQ, UK-based provider of social media management software, has produced the first social media monitoring tool to integrate Google+ into its search functionality using the Google+ API.
Public posts on Google+ now appear in CrowdControlHQ’s buzz monitoring feature, which also searches public posts through Twitter, Facebook, Google News and blogs, allowing brand marketers to capture an insight into social media posts across several different platforms.
CrowdControlHQ’s inclusion of Google+ public posts has come at an important time given that Google+ has recently gone into open beta. Since launching to the public, traffic has increased 13-fold in the space of one week, whilst user numbers have increased from 20 million to an estimated 43 million in the same time frame, according to Google+ researcher Paul Allen. With such a large user base, CrowdControlHQ has become the first social media monitoring service to allow brand marketers insight into one of the fastest growing social media platforms available.
James Leavesley, co-founder of CrowdControlHQ, commented: “With Google+ now available to the public, the incorporation of Google+ into our buzz monitoring feature is essential in offering an all-encompassing insight and understanding of reactions across the leading social networks. As Google+ continues to grow in size and stature, incorporation of Google+ is likely to become essential in offering an effective social media monitoring solution across the largest social networks. What’s more, with Google+ brand pages expected to launch sometime this year, a prior understanding of the Google+ audience will be a useful tool in effective social media planning.”
CrowdControlHQ’s development team has also built a free tool for brands to search Google+ outside of the CrowdControlHQ software, which can be found at http://www.searchgpl.us. The tool allows for real-time monitoring of public posts across all demographics, offering users an insight into public posts in real time.
