Social Search Tool
No money for a real scrape of the social landscape? Try SocialMention. It’s got to be one of the slowest search engines in existence, so it will drive you batty if you’re in a rush, but you’ll likely pull some useful information on your brand, disease state or topic. Just plan on popping in your keyword, hitting enter, then walking away to get coffee.
SocialMention aggregates user generated content into a single stream of information, monitoring 100-plus social media properties including Twitter, Facebook, FriendFeed, YouTube, Digg, and Google.
