Category: EducationFeaturedSearch Engines Comments: No comments

In a recent BuzzFeed article (well, not-so-recent in online terms), one writer praised Pinterest for its streamlined results and easy of use. As a long-time Pinterest lover, I tend to agree.

social media metricsSocial media metrics, much like Google analytics for websites, help you see if your efforts and what you’re doing online will translate into a positive ROI or great customer engagement.

Luckily for us, there’re a lot of great social media metric sites that offer free or affordable data plans when it comes to analyzing your Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook account. For larger companies, it may be worthwhile to go with a paid service especially if you’re doing with a large amount of data that deserves to be analyzed deeper than some of the free services offer (That of course depends on how strict your company leaders are on seeing data and the overall marketing budget).
