Social Mention Monitoring Tool

One of the good Social Media Monitoring tool that I am often use to research different brands, clients and competitions is Social Mention.

This social media monitoring tool features an interesting combination of easy-to-read metrics including reach, sentiment, passion, and strength (volume/day). Social Mention tracks blogs, blog comments, Twitter, mainstream news, images, video, and audio. Searches can be saved as an RSS feed so you can easily stay up-to-date.
