What Facebook and Twitter aren’t telling you could be just as important as what they are. ThinkUp is a web-based application that digs into the two most popular social networking platforms, Facebook and Twitter, to provide its users with surprising insights about themselves and their friends.
An analytics tool for real people, ThinkUp helps you get more value from the time you spend online. Join the service by signing up through Facebook or Twitter, and ThinkUp will start showing you a straightforward stream with insights about how you and your friends are using social media. Examples of the types of insights you might find on ThinkUp include how many tweets you posted in the past week, how many comments your latest status updates generated, and the percentage of your tweets that included the word “I,” “me,” “mine,” or “myself.”
If logging into a separate platform to access these analytics seems like a burden, ThinkUp also provides you with the option of receiving daily email digests with only the most pertinent information. ThinkUp is open source, built by a community, and it’s a great tool for people who’d like to learn more about how they’re utilizing social media on a daily basis.
