SocialSenseFB is a social media analytics tool from Networked Insights that allows companies to analyze what fans are saying about their brand and competitors’ brands on Facebook. Using SocialSenseFB, companies can analyze wall posts, comments and discussions to learn what’s most important to their fans and better understand what drives the brand. The platform uses Facebook’s Graph API, allowing marketers to leverage a community of people who are voluntarily engaging with the brand.

Ways the product benefits social media campaigns

SocialSenseFB helps marketers evaluate campaigns by gauging fan response on Facebook. Based upon trends identified by SocialSenseFB, marketers can understand what is resonating with fans and what isn’t. The platform can help discover language customer’s use, measure engagement, analyze sentiment and identify trends in fans’ conversations on the brand’s Facebook page.

Coolest feature

SocialSenseFB i provides marketers with real-time insight into conversations happening on the brand’s Facebook page. One post on a Facebook page can generate thousands of comments. And with some brands having hundreds of thousands of followers, knowing the number of fans is not very helpful, but understanding the level of engagement with the brand is important. Whether it’s a good or bad trend in comments, companies need to know what is being said about their brands on Facebook. This way brand marketers can optimize their marketing to better connect with consumers.

Feature rundown

SocialSenseFB uses Artificial Intelligence and Natural Language Processing to identify themes and patterns that fuel insights. Key features of the product include:

  • Dashboard Interface – makes it easy to understand findings
  • Discovery and Keyword Insights – tracks conversations around keywords, while also finding what you didn’t know to look for; discovery technology uncovers buzzing themes without the benefit of keywords
