As you may recall, we previously announced that Trackur would be looking at a strategic shift this year. The deliberation and discussions have been completed and we regret to inform our dashboard customers that we will be closing all dashboard plans on November 12th. Instead, Trackur.com will focus on a newly updated, faster API service that developers and SaaS companies have been relying on from us. What does this mean for you, if you use our dashboard? You can still use your Trackur dashboard now until November 12th. We may extend that a week or two, but it would be
Trackur has been a dominant and leading social media monitoring dashboard for 11 years now. In that time, we’ve led the way in providing broad coverage of mainstream media, social media, videos, images, and lots more. The industry has matured and consolidated, so that’s the new plan for Trackur.com. We are currently discussing strategic partnerships that would see the Trackur.com brand and our intuitive and accurate dashboard technology become part of a larger company that would benefit greatly from acquiring both. The likely end result would be that we would focus solely on our secondary company, Senfluence.com, and look at

It has been four years since we added Insights to your Trackur dashboard. We’ve made some major improvements over that time, but the one that has always escaped us: giving you more than just the past 24 hours of data. Today, we finally cracked that nut! As of today, you can switch your Insights view between 24hrs, 7 days and 30 days. With this change, you can get a better idea of how your reputation–and online mentions–have trended. In addition, you can now download each of those views to a PDF report. Why did it take so long? It’s a
Over the past few months we have been hard at work revamping our Senfluence Full Media Monitoring API. Not only have we improved all of our back-end crawling and parsing, we added new features and greatly simplified the API structure. Here are the highlights: Request caching – Requests for the same information within a 30 second period are set to be cached, allowing instant retrieval of unchanged result lists. More filters – Results can now be filtered by sentiment and/or country. No forced request structure – Gone is the preset /api_key/keyword/limit/offset/etc/etc/etc/ format, which caused numerous issues for filtering by source when

Vindication! Vindication for all of us that have accidentally tweeted something publicly when we meant for it to be sent as a direct message on Twitter. I’ve done it. You’ve likely done it. And now, Twitter’s own CFO has gone and done it! Let this serve as a PSA that you should never put anything in a DM that you would not want to be seen by the public. Not only could the recipient tweet it out, but those fat fingers of yours could accidentally share that private message with the world!
