The CNW Social Monitoring platform includes tools to analyze the tone and sentiment of online conversations as they happen. This real-time insight into emerging issues or positive trends can help teams determine next steps for any given marketing campaign, service initiative or communications plan. The platform's cleanly designed interface makes it easy to set up searches and share results.

A robust alerts feature informs essential team members of hot issues -- whether customer complaints or praise from influencers - enabling a timely and appropriate response from any social account, right from within the platform. CNW Social Monitoring subscribers can: Know what's being said online about a brand, company, spokespeople, clients or competitors; Engage with online audiences from within the CNW Social Monitoring platform; Report and share in a meaningful way with customized dashboards, exportable CSV files, graphs and charts - or use the PDF Report Builder feature to combine graphs with notes to share both qualitative and quantitative analysis. Target brand influencers and filter out "noise" using the Authority Score feature, which provides context about a site's potential impact by looking at the number of inbound links from other sites. Identify who is involved in the conversations using social demographics such as gender and age. Analyze the tone of conversations about their brand by scoring all mentions for positive, negative, or neutral sentiment, as with all CNW Group products and services, CNW Social Monitoring is supported with friendly, expert and bilingual assistance.
