Social Media Tool: Usability Update

June 24, 2016image

Meet the new functionality update for the Social Media tool — a big one! Our analytical methods are now extremely convenient and helpful.

Let’s not beat around the bush: we’re going to take a look at the updated elements:

Competitors Comparison table for the Audience report:

  • The table now has the same viewing options as a similar table on "Overview"
  • Numbers, showing audience can now be viewed in absolute values, which provides more realistic and accurate conclusions
  • Numerical values are now much larger in size and placed one under another, which allows for easier comparison
  • The sorting interface has been changed
  • Analyzed companies are now listed one under another for an easier read
  • You can now switch from one company to another by clicking on a company name in the Comparison chart


The upper table of the Engagement report:

  • A visual distribution of engagement by engagement type has been added
  • An outgoing link to a corresponding social profile has been added to allow for quick navigation to an original profile
  • Numerical data on engagement types is now presented in a table view
  • Engagement values are now displayed one under another (it's easier to compare numbers this way)
  • Absolute change values have been added, in order to show which type of engagement has changed the most


Сompetition comparison charts in the Overview, Audience and Engagement reports: A Hide button has been added:

If among the added competitors one is dominating, it may be difficult to see how the rest of your competitors are compared. Now there's a way to disable such competitors from the view – just use the Hide button.


"Engagement" report: competitors comparison table has been added:

  • Change in engagement is now viewed in absolute values
  • Numerical data became larger in size
  • Sorting interface has been changed
  • Analyzed companies are now displayed one under another
  • Easily switch from one company to another by clicking on a company name


Be sure to check it out and get your analytical data faster than before.
