We were playing around last week with a really cool tool which we thought we’d share with you: MentionMap.
MentionMap helps you to “Quickly find relevant people to follow.” You can use MentionMap to see Twitter conversations as a network and click any user to explore more about them, which means it’s a really neat way to visualise who you talk to most on Twitter.
It shows you your main connections and then who they are connected to in the thinking that you might also be interested in talking to them – almost like it’s suggesting new Twitter connections in a really nice visual way. Of all the tools available for checking out your impact on Twitter, this has to be one of the most visually friendly and easy to take future actions from.
We liked it so much, we thought we’d try it out for Bright One:
Bright One’s MentionMap shows we are heavily involved in conversations around some of our clients, in particular the PixelProject, Childsi and Junction 49. Interestingly enough we’re also strongly connected to organisations we’re friends with – Media Trust and UnLtdWorld. These connections are important to us, as it’s good for us to be involved in conversations around charity and social enterprise PR and communications, not just promoting our work and the work of our clients, but actively learning what is happening around the sector. That experience and learning will make us a more rounded team. It also highlights we might want to connect more with some of our other clients, and our volunteers individually, helping us to see where we need to focus our efforts on.
Pretty neat right? So why not check out MentionMap – either for fun, or to see how distracted you’re actually getting on Twitter!
