Sprinklr 😅


Maybe Cision + Falcon are good now, but I detested using Falcon for social listening.(w/mid-range agency plan). Totally agree about the SproutSocial consensus about being on the weak side. Haven't used the new Netbase Quid, but the agency I was at before (enterprise plan) used them and they were way to expensive and basic. My two favourites so far are Synthesio and Talkwalker.


Netbase is a nightmare, used it for years and finally presented a strong enough case to leave for Brandwatch. We just switched over as of 01/22 and it’s been awesome!


Brandwatch by 100000


Haha fair enough. Based off of capabilities though, brandwatch is superior.

Tough question. I have used Meltwater. Never heard of Netbase but would be interested in Brandwatch. Is this just for social listening and monitoring?


Not Netbase


Definitely BrandWatch


Depends what you need it to do!


We use meltwater but I haven’t tried the others Love to hear responses

My organization went from Brandwatch to Meltwater, I think mostly for cost reasons. I'm not a power user though.

Personally, I like Muck Rack.

Timely discussion as we’ve started our search for a possible replacement for Brandwatch. It’s good but just seeing if there’s better bang for buck out there. The after-sales support is also horrendous.

About to head into intro call for Critical Mention in literally 30 mins. Anyone ever used that?

Oh, and I haven't heard anything bad about Brandwatch, but I'm shopping around so I have a demo with them next week. :)

My only experience with Meltwater was through Likealizer (before being completely absorved) and it was a decent tool.

If you're still on the lookout - I'd love to give you a demo of Talkwalker. After all, we have been recognized as the leader in Forrester's New Wave report for the 'AI-powered consumer intelligence platform' category.

I'm curious about the PTO offered at tech companies. Currently we have 33 days including holidays. Just curious about other data points.

As a reference, 3 years with this company, ~60k salary in CoL area rated at ~2% higher than US average. No on-call rotation and thus far no mandatory OT.

I feel if I try to aim for a higher salary, I'll be sacrificing time away from work.

Has anyone else ever had their brand account shadowbanned by TikTok? TikTok claims that we aren’t being shadowbanned but I’m calling bullshit on that. We have 300k followers yet out of nowhere our videos started only pulling 300-400 views when we where averaging 5-6k. TikToks solution when we called them out is that we need to invest more money, but our team is wildly against giving them anymore money for the foreseeable future.

Any feedback/suggestions would be helpful

Post Photo

Videos longer than 15 min get automatically shortened to 15 min on IG Reels! Help!

So, I usually host an IG live session. Typically, it last 45 min.

If I upload directly after recording the live, then the full 45 min is uploaded in 1080 x 1920 format. Besides missing a cover image, it’s fine. But, in most cases, I need to re-upload the 45 min video once I edit it (remove slurs, etc.)

However, when I upload my edited 45 video, it automatically gets cut to 15 min.

I found little workaround…
