Crowdbooster only monitors Facebook (account) and Twitter. Surely to be a useful measure of web social activity and influence it also needs to monitor Facebook Pages, Google+, Google+ Pages, LinkedIn and blogs?

Thanks Living Streams for letting me know,I have updated my article and included Hootsuite in place of YourBuzz.

Yes,you are right Living Stream and I firmly believe that Crowdbooster would upgrade its current product to include more social media sites. But currently, Facebook and Twitter are two of the most influential social media platforms and getting a dedicated tool for the effective maintainence of these platforms is not bad! The special features with this product are its suggestions and its graphs which helps to analyze the real flow of traffic.
