Stay connected with your audience using Social Center

Engage with your audience on Facebook and Twitter, directly from within Social Engagement.

You can also authenticate social profiles and reply to posts or direct messages in real time.

Identify significant phrases in social posts

Content analytics are key to understanding what people are talking about on social media. We’re introducing the new Conversations page in Analytics to provide deep insights into the content of the social conversations. We extract important phrases from all social posts in your data set, not just a sample, to provide a clear view into what’s on the minds of your customers and stakeholders.

Set up search topics using multiple rules

You can add Facebook pages and Twitter handles directly to a search topic, allowing more consolidated search topics and analysis. Additionally, you can create and manage custom categories to organize search topics according to your requirements. You can now check the quota for all your search topics, single categories, or single search topics of your solution. The quota feedback calculation on the estimated number of results now takes the selected sources
and search languages into account.
