Social media Advent calendar day 10: Mentionmapp

10. Mentionmapp

There are a lot of Twitter visualisations out there, but this one manages to combine looking good with also being easy to use and, perhaps most importantly, useful.

Log on to Mentionmapp via your Twitter account and then select type in your name into the search box and it brings up a brilliant visualisation of the people you’ve talked to and the hashtags you’ve been using.

You then click on those people or hashtags and Mentionmapp weaves out again, revealing the people they’ve been talking to or the other people who’ve been using that search term.

It’s a fun, and practical, way of finding new people you should be following by simply mooching through your Twitter followers and going into their networks too.

What’s this calendar all about then?
