San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 13, 2012
GolinHarris and PeopleBrowsr today announced the companies have partnered for Social Media Week San Francisco, taking place February 13-17 at events throughout San Francisco and Silicon Valley. GolinHarris team members will be tracking online conversations and driving engagement by analyzing topics, speaker sound bites, and event details in real-time. GolinHarris will rely on the PeopleBrowsr API to pull metadata from Twitter, Facebook, and blogs/forums, and Kred to measure individuals’ sphere of influence and level of outreach over the course of the week.
GolinHarris will activate the agency’s real-time engagement studio, The Bridge™, staffed by a team of specialists dedicated to Social Media Week in its local office. Introduced in 2011 as part of GolinHarris’ agency redesign, The Bridge is a holistic engagement center equipped with the latest news and conversation analysis tools including production, publishing and syndication technologies, enabling GolinHarris to spot and take advantage of short-term media opportunities. The Bridge is also ideal for sharing brand stories, up-leveling client messages and inserting clients into current news cycles. The result is a higher inclusion rate in a broader base of media and online conversations.
“The Bridge was designed to capitalize on rapid news cycles and conversations on behalf of our clients and their brands,” said Clint Schaff, director of GolinHarris’ Digital Practice, Western Region. “In this particular instance, we’ll be activating the Bridge to help drive understanding of topics discussed at Social Media Week and spur additional conversation.”
By leveraging the PeopleBrowsr API, GolinHarris can quickly identify information associated with an individual’s location, bio, gender or sentiment. The agency will also be using Kred, PeopleBrowsr’s measure of influence in online communities connected by interests. Unlike other influence metrics, Kred values audience quality and engagement over audience size to arrive at a more accurate measurement and also pulls data across dozens of communities.
“We believe that we have the deepest and best social media data mining API in the industry,” said Travis Wallis, director, API Strategy at PeopleBrowsr. “The powerful combination of GolinHarris’ monitoring, production, and engagement capabilities on The Bridge combined with our API is a very compelling way to track online engagement and we look forward to seeing how the conversation evolves during Social Media Week.”
