    Deirdre, first off thanks for including Radian6 in your upcoming book with Brian. Really appreciate it.

    Secondly yes measurement is definitely a hot topic. What I love about social media, beyond it’s capability for brands to stay very connected to their customers and community, is that it’s completely trackable. You bring up some great areas above. And with the ability to slice and dice the data instantly you can quickly dig into the numbers whenever you need to.

    Again, thanks for including us.

    Hi David…thank you! You’re absolutely right about the trackability. Having this data at our fingertips is amazing. Many brands are still learning how to slice and dice the data and the ones who who dig in quickly will succeed! Keep up the good work at Radian6!

    Great post, the biggest struggle I’m seeing though in social media metrics is trying to track people across. What if some see’s your blog post and comments, then links it via delicious, and tweets about it. Which then also hits facebook and on through.

    There are a lot of vendors doing some very cool stuff but the first one that can do this has a big advantage. I’ve been thinking for awhile now that friendfeed should give research access to their data to solve this problem. Do you think that’s a viable solution?

    Hey Tony, great feedback! Thank you. Blogpulse is able to track the threads of conversations and memes …connecting the conversations. But, I agree with you about Friendfeed as it is aggregated. Check out Friendfeed’s advanced search option. You can search by topic or key word among just your friends, specific people and/or everyone in the community. The measurement is so important and I think that we will continue to see tremendous growth in this area!
