We like to think of SocialRank, the product, as having three pieces – identifying your followers, segmenting your followers, and then “doing things” with your followers.
We are really good at the first and second part of the equation. The third part, what to do once you find the right people, is something we are focused on improving. Today we are releasing one of the improvements: the ability to build lists on SocialRank.
Currently we have three things you can do once you find people on SocialRank. You can a) privately communicate via Direct Message, b) Export to a CSV file, and c) Save the Search.
Lists is not that different than a Saved Search except that you can add and remove results. For example, if you search for people that have the word Engineer in their bio and live in NYC, you may find that you have 18 people who fit that criteria. But if you don’t like a result, for whatever reason, in Saved Searches there is nothing you can do. In Lists, however, you can add and remove individual results (by checking and unchecking).
Once you build a list and are in view mode, you can even slice and dice those followers. So for example, if you take your Engineer in NYC list and want to see which one of those has the word Entrepreneur in their bio as well, you can dig deeper into your list.
Another note about List functionality: you can build Lists across accounts.
Lists are great but they are really stepping stones to tons of things we want to let you do with your followers. You’ll be seeing some new action items in SocialRank over the next few weeks/months. There are many things we want to add and we will let you know as they roll out.
