    • The PostRank Process Engagement Sources
    • The 5 C’s of Engagement Creating Critiquing Chatting Collecting Clicking
    • PostRank Stats
      • Tracking ~1 million unique, user-submitted feeds
      • Indexing over 2 million stories a day
      • Calculating over 13,000 PR per minute
      • Using 200 servers at EC2 for data collection and archiving
    • So Why is Tracking Social Engagement Important?
      • Two amazing realities:
      • Over 80% of story engagement happens off of the publishers property!
      • The half-life of a story today is 50 minutes (56% in the first day)!
    • Here’s How it Looks Social Media, kthnx SEO (aka Google)
    • Our Data Proves.....
      • “ If you are not leveraging social media, then you are missing 50% of your traffic”
      • SEO is still very important: driving traffic from the tail
      • SMM is a new power tool: builds community, grows influence, but it’s also very fickle.
    • Velocity is Key
      • # 1 metric in SMM: Velocity
      • Number of votes, Diggs, etc. correlated with time since the story was posted
      • In fact time matters for most social services/applications
      • Lots of networks….how do you know where to spend your time as a publisher?

      • Real-time data about audience engagement as it’s happening
