To avoid clutter in your feed, Mentions offers a filter to organize identical data! The Grouped Mentions filter will combine mentions that share similar text on a web page or social post.

You will notice grouped mentions in your feed when they have the re-share symbol.

If you hover over your mouse over the symbol, Mention will show you the URLs and influence score of the grouped mentions. Clicking on one of the mentions will open them in a new tab for you as well.

There are two definitions to remember about grouped mentions:

  • Parent mention: the parent mention is the mention that you see in your Feed with the grouped mention symbol. Typically the parent mention is the first mention that was fetched into your Feed.

  • Children mention: the children mentions are the mentions within the re-share symbol. These are the mentions grouped to your parent mention. These are the mentions that share the same text content as the parent mention.

⚙️ How Does Mention Group Posts?

When a new mention appears in your Feed, our system will analyze the text of the post. If the content is similar to other mentions that are in your Feed, the posts will be grouped together.

💡 Benefits of Grouped Mentions:

The Grouped Mentions filter is a great way to keep your Feed clean when certain content is shared on the web and social media. For example:

  • If a press release is posted on multiple websites, Mention will try to organize all of the posts into one grouped mention so your Feed is not cluttered with the same content.

  • If a tweet goes viral on Twitter/X, Mention will group all of the retweets and shares into one post in the Feed.

  • If a brand publishes the same social media post across multiple formats such as Facebook and Twitter/X, Mention will group the content for you in the Feed.

Turn off Grouped Mentions:

Please note that Grouped Mentions are automatically turned on when you create a new alert! However, you can turn off the filter by heading to your filters tab in the search bar.

In the filters tab, please head over to the Group Mentions section to choose your preferences. You can group or un-group mentions whenever you would like!

Mention Reports - Group Mentions for Reach Graphs

Listening, Comparative, and Custom Reports will have Reach Graphs displayed in your Dashboards. These Reach Graphs are automatically un-grouped; however, you have the option of grouping content to organize the list of mentions in these graphs.

We recommend grouping mentions in the graph if you recognize the same mentions appearing in this list. To Group Mentions, please follow these steps:

  • Click on Edit Mode for your Report

  • Find the Reach graph and edit the graph

  • Scroll to the Group Mentions section and choose the Group Mentions option.

Helpful Tips:

  • Mention will automatically un-group mentions in the Data Reports.

  • If you want to export mentions through your feed, please un-group them first.

  • If you feel that new mentions are missing in your feed, try un-grouping your mentions first before scrolling through your content.
