Xaffo™ Debuts to Provide Social Media Analytics for SMBs to Enterprises

The Xaffo Application Delivers the Industry's First Social Media Analytics Tool for SMBs and Enterprises to Track Activity about Their Organization's Web Content within Leading Social Media Networks

SAN FRANCISCO - May 14, 2012 - Calcey Technologies® today introduced Xaffo™, a browser-accessible application, to provide a new breed of social media analytics and social media intelligence.  Xaffo provides the industry's first social media analytics tool for any organization - from small to medium-sized business (SMB) on up to large enterprises - to have an ability to track and act upon the popularity of their website and web pages in leading social media networks.  In addition, Xaffo allows monitoring of keywords, trends, conversations, even sentiment analysis, and more across leading social media networks.  The application is available at www.xaffo.com.

Subscribers can monitor the top 100 most popular pages of their website to see growth and trending, watch activity for selected web pages, and analyze visitor engagement. Website owners can use this intelligence to better proactively and reactively engage in social media marketing, whether to run a campaign or simply monitor their brand's reputation in social media networks.

Tracking a history of up to 1,500 posts per social network, Xaffo enables subscribers to stay on top of their social media presence with complete breakdowns for Delicious; Digg™; Facebook®; Google+™; LinkedIn®; Reddit®; and Twitter®.  Each tweet; retweet; like; share; etc. are tracked and can be conveniently viewed. A tweet can be clicked-through for direct communications and a Facebook profile of your engaged users can also be clicked-through from the Xaffo dashboard.

A Watch List lets users track keywords for competitive analysis, trending and more.  Facebook metrics let users track their most engaged users - yesterday's most engaged or all-time most engaged; conversations; posts; comments and levels of attraction.  Twitter sentiment analysis is also possible whereby aggregate results of individual positive or negative tweets can give users insight to trends on sentiment about a particular web page, keywords, etc.

"Social media's rapid rise in importance continues to leave many organizations trying to figure out how to get in on it and also how to best realize a return on their investment in time and resources," said Mangala Karunaratne, Founder of Xaffo.  "Today, it's not only vital for organizations to engage in social media, it's vital to clearly understand the impact it has on your organization's brand and products.  As such, organizations with a social networking presence must also have deep analytical intelligence.  It's important that this data is simple to understand.  It's also important that it be meaningful in terms of gauging how and how often your web content is being viewed, shared, discussed, and so on, within social media networks.  This is what Xaffo delivers upon."
