Measuring media with del.icio.us

Careaga

The communications staff at Missouri University of Science and Technology use a del.icio.us account to track their online news stories and blog posts. Like EducationPR, they use Google Alerts and Technorati to find the stories in the first place. They they select the ones they think are the most important or most closely tied to key messages to post on del.icio.us.

Andrew Careaga at Higher Ed Marketing says using del.icio.us “… makes it easier for us to keep track of media coverage, but we’ve also discovered a side benefit: del.icio.us gives us yet another tool for measuring and analyzing our media relations activities in the sphere of online social media.”
