Take the cutting edge even closer to the edge is Geofeedia, a leader in location-based social media monitoring, intelligence and analysis. The company tells MMW that it is debuting the next generation of its social media intelligence platform at Social Media Marketing World this week in San Diego.
According to a statement provided to MMW, Geofeedia research shows 74 percent of social conversation cannot be found with traditional hashtag and keyword monitoring. In addition, six percent of posts solely include images or videos with no text at all.
Geofeedia’s location-based social media monitoring tool fills in the data gap that traditional social media listening tools leave behind by offering marketers a powerful way to pinpoint the context of location-tagged social media posts that may not include associated keywords or hashtags.

There’s a fascinating interview at eMarketer that underscores something we’re witnessing more and more: cookies are gone as a top tech choice for tracking consumers.
Instead, ever since Facebook acquired ad targeting firm Atlas from Microsoft, consumers are increasingly targeted on the basis of what information Facebook has acquired about its users.
The interview posed questions to David Jakubowski, the Director of Product Marketing for Adtech at Facebook, and Facebook’s Atlas honcho Erik Johnson.

Retailers are always on the lookout for the most effective ways to reach shoppers via off-line, online, and mobile marketing. One of the growing trends when it comes to mobile marketing is the deployment of beacon technology, which provides advertisements, promos, and discounts for restaurants and retailers in the specific areas in which consumers are shopping.
One of the primary advantages to beacon technology is that it can even pinpoint the exact shopping mall or store where a consumer is located in real time. Consequently, beacon marketing has led Swirl Networks to launch its opt-in beacon marketing campaign with major retailers the likes of Lord & Taylor, Kenneth Cole, and Timberland.
