Good food, road cycling and outdoor adventures are just some of the things that excite me in life. There's also Brand24, digital marketing and advertising -- some day I'd love to try the last one. Loving English language and literature since a kid.

Here comes another part of our tutorial describing the features of Brand24. We want to make sure you know how to use the tool and bring the most out of it to your benefit.

So far, we’ve had a closer look at Brand24’s filters.

  • The most interactive mentions
  • Mentions from the most popular authors
  • Summary of the most important numbers
  • Mentions by category
  • Influence of social media authors
  • Most active social media authors

The Most Interactive Mentions

The Most Interactive Mentions

How does it work?

This is where you can see 100 most engaged mentions. The list is based on the number of likes, comments, and shares. Brand24 tracks these interactions across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and now also on YouTube.

How do you use it? 

To have a closer look at the engagement, you can go to the source of the mention. You can do so by clicking on the source website link and Brand24 will take you directly to the source. Then, you can, for example, browse comments to spot the ones that may require taking an action.

Also, you might want to step in to engage your audience. Driving social media engagement translates into various benefits. Here’s our recent post about how to create a social media engagement strategy.

What does it tell you? 

It tells you which mentions get the biggest attention (a high number of likes, comments and shares). That can mean two things:

  • A piece of content is highly appealing to the audience.
  • A piece of content is controversial and sparks a debate.

All in all, it shows you what works and what does not in terms of engagement.


Mentions From the Most Popular Authors

What does it show you?

Here you can see the 100 most popular authors. The list is based on both Influence and Estimated Social Media Reach.

How to use it? 

Finding mentions from the most popular authors allows, for example, tracking the sources of traffic to your website. If an influential author with considerable social media reach most certainly has a huge audience. When he or she talks about your company or product name, they get a massive exposure in social media and simply reach more people that may find it interesting and worth checking out.

And this is how you can unmask the sources of direct traffic.

The list tells you how popular the authors mentioning your keyword(s) are. Also, you can see at a glance which mentions you should engage first.
