Track Hashtags Across Social Networks With Tagboard

tagboardlogoIf you are an active social media user or if you are responsible for managing a social media presence for an organization, you have probably spent a significant amount of time monitoring relevant hashtags. While there are a number of tools that can make this easier, Tagboard is a new option that not only allows you to track a hashtag, but also makes it easy to share this information with your followers.

The first time you visit Tagboard, you are presented with a search bar that allows you to search for a hashtag. The results page will show all content that is shared under that hashtag on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Vine, App.net, and Google+. The main page of the resulting dashboard shows all content from across networks on a single page, but you can also click on individual tabs to see content from individual social networks. If you create an account and no one has previously claimed the hashtag, you can claim it (subject to a few limitations for hashtags that are affiliated with other organizations) and become the administrator for the tagboard. Being the administrator allows you to title the tagboard, give it a tagline, which is the definition of the hashtag and you can also assign an avatar to the tagboard. Tagboard is also still in the process of releasing premium features to select users, so you can opt to apply for premium status, which will allow you to customize your design, moderate content and highlight featured content. This premium option is more geared towards institutional users, but for those, it offers a greater level of control of the tagboard. Once the tagboard is completely set up, you can share it via social media to keep your followers up-to-date on the activity on the hashtag. Overall, Tagboard is a nice option for social media users who want more options for hashtag tracking.
