Ever since the number of followers and fans of my social media pages have increased, I am finding it difficult to keep up with the trends and ensure that only relevant content reaches my readers. That is why; I decided to give ThoughtBuzz a try so that I can have a look at the social media analytics of multiple pages together. Let’s have a look at my review.
ThoughtBuzz was established in 2008 to provide organisations with actionable insights, through big data and business analytics. Headquartered in Singapore, ThoughtBuzz has a network of offices in India, Manila, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, providing leading technology and methodology for businesses worldwide. We serve clients raging from small enterprises to government bodies, from risk management to marketing management.
When I first opened the website, I decided to check out the FAQ’s section where I got the 6 steps to kickstart Thoughtbuzz.com

After I created my account, I was really excited to try out the various features ThoughtBuzz offered.
I, however, ended up spending nearly ten minutes to figure out where exactly could I log in. There were just two options: Create a free account and view our plans. When I clicked create a free account, I was directed to the log in page. Phew! After spending all this time I finally managed to get access to my dashboard. Certainly not a first good impression.
Next I was asked to add my social media accounts so that I can view the analytics. I really liked this feature as I could check multiple accounts at one time without having to switch back and forth.
Currently, you can track profiles in the following platforms:
I added my Twitter account easily but faced a lot of issues while adding my Facebook page. The dashboard still does not detect the page feed of my blog’s page and it really has been a frustrating experience for me. I then wanted to go ahead and check the analytics of my Twitter page at least. The good part about this tool is that you can select a range of dates for which you want to see analytics. Again, this tool worked partially for me and could not tell me the number of followers that I had from 1st Feb to 10th March and also the number or RT’s. All it showed was this.
Now that is hardly useful is it?
These are their paid plans
Overall I would rate ThoughtBuzz.com 2 and a half out of 5. It does have some interesting features but they clearly need to work on the little kinks in the system.
