Chances are you know how many people follow you on Twitter. But do you know who they are or anything else about most of them? Probably not.

Alex Taub and Michael Schonfeld see this is as a problem. Their startup, SocialRank, released a tool on Wednesday designed to help companies parse their social-network followers better. “Now you can filter and sort people by interest, location, bio key words, verification, and activity,” says Taub. The tool, SocialRank 2.0, currently works only for Twitter but will soon be extended to other services, such as Instagram and Facebook.
