In your account, the Monitor Feature includes the Basic Alert and Standard Alert as well as access to the Mention Feed. You can utilize these alerts to monitor the web and social media. Once mentions are fetched, the Feed will display your data where you can review your data.
Mention Alerts monitor the web and social media in two ways:
Keyword Monitoring: Mention will search for text or phrases that you write in your alert. If the text or phrases appear in a web post or social media post, it will be brought into your Feed.
Monitored Pages: Within your alert, you can add the URL of social media accounts and review websites. Any time these accounts or review sites post, Mention will fetch the post into your account.
Here is a breakdown of the alerts available in your subscription:
Basic Alerts monitor the web and social media for new data after you create an alert. These alerts offer an easy-to-use interface with simplified monitoring rules so it is a great alert to start with if this is your first time using an online monitoring tool.
For Basic Alerts, you can monitor up to 15 words or phrases so we recommend using it when you want to monitor broad topics that require less keywords.
Standard Alerts will also monitor the web and social media for new data after you create the alert. These alerts will introduce you to logic operators so you can create complex search queries. Once you are ready to enhance your online monitoring skills, we recommend creating Standard Alerts in your account.
For Standard Alerts, you can monitor up to 40 words or phrases using multiple search operators so we recommend using it when you are ready to monitor specific topics that interest you.
For the Basic and Standard Alerts, you can monitor the following Sources:
Web : general public websites
News : local and major news websites
Blogs : minor and major blog websites across the web
Forums : minor and major forum websites across the web
Reddit : public sub-reddits
Videos: public video hosting sites
Facebook: posts from public business pages from the social media platform
Twitter : public tweets from the social media platform
Instagram: public posts from the social media platform
Once you begin fetching data, you will have access to the Mention Feed. The Feed is where you will be able to review all of the mentions that you've received on your alerts.
The Feed is built like an email inbox where you can navigate through your alerts, preview mentions, and curate your content:
As you navigate the Feed, you can review all of online publications that are posting about the topics you are monitoring. On your subscription, the Feed is going to be your main area for reviewing content that is relevant to your monitoring needs.
