Emoji Search On SocialRank

Back in March we released the Word + Hashtag filter for Twitter and it was so popular that later in June we released the feature for Instagram as well. We’re always updating features to make sure you get the most out of SocialRank – and so by popular demand we’ve added the Emoji Search for both Twitter and Instagram!

The Emoji Search filter lets you to find followers who have included specific emojis in their bio, tweets or posts.

This can be very useful considering that emojis are often used interchangeably with words. For example, when a beauty blogger lists products they’ve used, they’ll almost always use the lipstick emoji before the name of the product. Now if I’m L’oreal and have a new lipstick line launching, this is insightful data that will help me find the right people to give samples to.

We’ve also added the most common used emojis to the individual profile cards along with the frequency. Pretty interesting for you to be able to see at a glance. Screen Shot 2016-07-27 at 10.31.52 AM

When we create new filters we’re always thinking of ways to help you better segment and find the right people. Hit us up at if you’ve got some suggestions!


Account Summary: In Depth Review

SocialRank is useful for getting very granular data, but what if you wanted to see a snapshot of all your followers or a search query you’ve made?

We released a new feature called “Summary,” in May, that let’s you do just that. Now you can see the macro data of your followers as well. Data points include: Follower Activity, Follower Distribution, Top Follower Locations, Popular bio words, Popular words in posts, and Popular hashtags in posts.

  • Follower Activity is the activity breakdown for your audience. This data is useful to see how active your audience is.

  • Follower Distribution is distribution of how many followers your audience has. This data is useful to gauge the quality of your audience.

  • Top Follower Locations is a breakdown of locations where your followers have self-identified or geo-tagged in.
  • Screen Shot 2016-07-22 at 11.14.13 AMPopular bio words, Popular words in posts, Popular hashtags in posts, are exactly what they sound like. It’s very useful for you to be able to see what your followers are talking about, and what’s important to them.

This data will update as you enter different search queries.  For example, if you enter a bio keyword filter for ‘dog lovers’ which results in let’s say 100 followers, the summary tab data will be reflective of those 100 followers.

You can also export the Summary as a PDF – it’s great to have for meetings.

If there’s a data point we currently don’t have that would be interesting or useful for you, let us know. Hit us up at with your requests and feedback!


Most Frequent Location

In the past we’ve added updates to the Location filter in order to provide more context around why accounts show up in a result. Today we are pushing an additional update that will show the location an account posts most frequently from.  

On Twitter when you search in Location for San Francisco not only will you see the context for self identification, and geo-tag of tweets in San Francisco, but additionally you will see context for where that person posted the most from.

The most frequent location is useful because if someone doesn’t specifically self-identify on Twitter, you can get some context around where they’re most likely based. This will further help you in finding the right people for location based events or rewards.

On Instagram, we’ve found that the location most posted from can either be where the user is based or a vacation spot.

Create A List Using Your Own CSV On SocialRank

We just pushed a new feature to SocialRank that lets you create a list using your own CSV file. This has been frequently requested and we are excited to add it under SocialRank’s Premium features.

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 1.13.30 AM

First you need to click the ‘Lists’ filter (or find it under Save & Export) and then click ‘Create A New List’. Enter a name for your list and then choose ‘Import Twitter / Instagram handles from CSV file.’

Then simply attach the CSV file. Be sure to attach a single column CSV file with no header column and case-sensitive @handles only. It will take a few minutes depending on the size of list, but once you upload it you will now have a list based on your CSV.

As always, hit us up at if you have any questions, comments, requests, jokes, concerns – we want to hear it all!


Word Search On Instagram

One of the most popular filters on SocialRank for Twitter is the word search. As of today we’ve added the same functionality to Instagram. You can now search your audience on Instagram for certain words they use (on top of hashtags they use).

Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 12.47.47 PM

This is useful for finding followers who have included  certain words in their Instagram posts. This gives you some important context that is missing when using only the bio keyword search.

Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 12.48.02 PM

For example, if I’m looking for dog lovers to invite to an event in NYC, I want to find all of my followers on Instagram that have used the word “dog” in their posts. I can easily search which of my followers are talking about dogs.

Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 12.48.59 PM

You can enter multiple words and either look for them as “Search for any words” (the equivalent of looking for X OR Y OR Z) or “Search for all words” (the equivalent of looking for X AND Y AND Z).

Screen Shot 2016-06-21 at 12.49.11 PM

There are a lot of amazing things you can do with your audience once you find the right people. The Word Filter helps you better segment and find them.

Feature Alert: Most Engaged Context & Corresponding Posts on Instagram

In January we released a feature that lets you see the context and corresponding tweets for your Most Engaged and Best Followers. It is one of the most useful and appreciated features, so we’ve brought the same functionality to Instagram. Today we added the ability to pull “context” for Most Engaged and Best Follower sorting options on Instagram.

We frequently receive questions at SocialRank about the algorithmic sorting options: Most Valuable, Most Engaged, and Best Follower. While there are definitions in our FAQ – we took  Most Engaged and Best Follower to the next level by pulling in the content that your followers engaged with (thus, giving you context.)

Here is what it looks like for Most Engaged and Best Follower.

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 10.55.10 AM

For Instagram, when you look at “Recent Engagement” you’ll see the number of times that follower commented, liked, or tagged your account in the last 14 days.

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 10.55.31 AM

Once you click “Show Engagement Photos” the content will drop down.

Screen Shot 2016-06-09 at 10.55.57 AM

You can scroll through it to see the context.

And that’s it. Now you don’t need to go out of SocialRank to figure out why someone is considered an engaged follower and what they engaged with.

Account Privacy Filter for Twitter

We try to keep feature parity across the SocialRank for Twitter and Instagram products. One feature that has been on Instagram (and not Twitter) for the past year has been the Account Privacy filter. As of today, we’ve added this filter to Twitter as well.

Screen Shot 2016-06-02 at 11.41.11 AM

SocialRank’s main goal is to help you identify, segment and do things with your audience – so filters that help you find the right people more easily are the type of tools we want to empower you with. Simply put, this filter let’s you look at just public or private accounts that follow you. Naturally, the content of the private accounts are rightfully not available. The main use case here is if you are a brand looking for people to invite to an event, seed a product to or some other public facing gesture; picking followers that have their settings on public will net more public discussion than private ones.

As always, hit us up at if you have any questions, comments, requests, jokes, concerns – we want to hear it all!


Share Lists on SocialRank Teams

SocialRank for Teams has been a key product for bigger organizations when using SocialRank and Market Intel.

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 4.44.29 PM

One of the most useful features has been Creating Lists. Lists help curate the results you are looking for. Instead of saving a query (Saved Searches), this lets you control the accounts present. You can also build Lists across multiple accounts.

Screen Shot 2016-05-26 at 4.44.43 PM

Now, in SocialRank Teams, you can share your list with your teammates. This can be useful so you don’t have recreate Lists as a team. For example, if someone from your company builds a list and you want to use, just by having them click share, you can have access to it.
