ThinkUp is a great little service for anyone who likes to track how they are doing on the social sites Twitter and Facebook.
Rather than relying on some arbitrary grading system like Klout, ThinkUp instead provides simple, clear feedback on what you are doing online and how people are responding to it.
There’s a web interface where you can log in and check out the insights ThinkUp has to share with you, or you can just rely on the helpful daily email.
Here are some examples of the feedback ThinkUp provides (click to enlarge them):
There’s value in ThinkUp for everyone, but I think particularly for people in leadership positions in organisations who are just getting started with a tool like Twitter, ThinkUp can act as a virtual coach, providing positive advice and insight on a regular basis to keep enthusiasm levels as high as possible.
ThinkUp does cost $60 a year to use, but I think it’s good value.
