Monitoring what is said on your pages is simple and can be done natively on each platform. Unfortunately, issues arise when it comes to monitoring the other places your company can be mentioned. People are voicing their beliefs online about everything. The good, the bad, and the ugly opinions are published on social media platforms, blogs, and forums in every nook and cranny of the web.
