How to Search Multiple Social Media Sites at a Time

Ads by Google

social media searchSocial media conversations are everywhere. Even most “die-hard” web 1.0 addicts (who once considered social networking insane) have engaged into social media by now.

People share thoughts, exchange opinions and reviews every single second. It is really hard to keep track of those conversations and sometimes you just need to.

Would you like to know what people are saying about the recent product or track your business reviews? This time I am listing most useful online tools that might help you to search multiple social media sites from one place (and sometimes with one click).

The tool also shows recent trends (as well as hashtags) and allows you to change the page background color:
