I’ve been following social media updates on the OC Transpo transit strike (see previous post) through a variety of social media channels. Thought I’d share my search approach here, and ask if anyone has suggestions for other channels to follow or tools to use.
Facebook – searching for groups, events, and pages; following discussion topics & wall posts
Twitter – search.twitter.com to find relevant keyword tweets
Blogs – blogsearch.google.com using keywords and sorted by date to get the most recent posts
Google Alerts – keyword alerts setup to send updates immediately
Youtube – daily keyword search for any new videos & discussions
Flickr – daily keyword search for any new photos & discussions
- Are there other social media sites that I should be searching?
- Are there any good tools that would help make it easier to follow a variety of social media sources?
