Last week we launched our new TrendSpottr app for HootSuite. This new app is available to all HootSuite users and can be installed from HootSuite’s App Directory.
One of the great features of HootSuite is the ability to create tabs to track specific streams. This feature can also be used with the TrendSpottr app to organize and monitor trends for broad topics or categories of interest, such as “News Sources”, “Brands”, “Stocks” and “Cities”. Within each tab, multiple search terms can be added and continuously tracked.
For example, in the screenshot below, the “News Sources” tab is tracking four searches: Techcrunch, Guardian, Nyti.ms and @latimes. Clicking on this tab will always display the top trending content from these four publishers. It’s the best way to discover the top trending content from all of your favorite news sources in one consolidated view.
To add a tab: click the “Add Tab” button at the top of the HootSuite dashboard.
To add a new search column: Click “Add Stream”, Select “Apps”, then click on the “+” sign next to the TrendSpottr app. Repeat to add multiple search columns.
Give it a try by heading over to HootSuite and adding the TrendSpottr app.
