Social Media is emerging as a key tool for online communication and knowledge accumulation. Each month, 30 billion pieces of content are generated and shared on Facebook. On Twitter, over 1 billion messages are posted each week. In one day, over 762,000 thousand new posts and 803,000 comments are posted on WordPress. And, every minute, over 60 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube.

For the use of our clients and colleagues, we have developed a non-comprehensive list of online tools that you may find useful in monitoring and mining content accumulated on social media platforms and on the Internet, generally.
