Buzzing on ThoughtBuzz


Social Media has attracted almost everyone across the spectrum in today’s world. Whether its users or brands, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and the likes are popular almost everywhere. While many use it to brand themselves and create their online identities, there are others who use it to keep in touch with friends. Sharing thoughts, photographs, links, videos – there’s so much and more one can use social networks for. But don’t you find it difficult to manage all your networks? Wouldn’t it be useful to analyze the social activity across all the networks on one platform altogether?

Here’s where ThoughtBuzz comes in. This was an organization setup in 2008 to provide insights on social platforms for a user through big data and cross platform analytics across different social networks. It has offices in India, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines.

There is a simple way to signup for the FREE version which I tried. A user can either register by entering the user details or login using Facebook, Twitter or Google+ login. On entry, the user has to select the Country and click on Submit. The basic version allows to add only 2 social profiles (Facebook and Twitter) while the premium version allows adding 5 social profiles which includes Instagram, YouTube and Linkedin as well.

Global Twitter, Instagram & Youtube Trends

A dashboard with the global Twitter, YouTube and Instagram trends are visible. This can be customized according to one’s country. The user can add his Facebook and Twitter accounts to get going. I logged onto Facebook and imported my fans from my page ‘Aseem Rastogi’.

There is a feature for the user to engage with friends, family and other users or brands across all social networks within one dashboard. The posts and tweets can be scheduled and posted at a later date and time or posted immediately depending on the user’s choice.

The graphs and charts feature helped me analyze my reach, likes, followers etc. on both Twitter and Facebook for the past 45 days. For brands, this is an excellent feature to compare the social activity on the different social networks.

In case if there are any questions, there is also the FAQs and ‘Contact Us’ feature which is quite useful if one is still trying to get through the different features of the site without much success.

UI: Thoughtbuzz has a pretty neat and clean User Experience for users and brands to navigate through the website.

Graphs and charts: These insights which detail out the followers, likes and overall engagement of the users and brands on social networks is quite helpful to get insights on the social activity and make appropriate business decisions.

Competition: Klout provides social insights on all the social networks provided by Thoughtbuzz and many more in the free version.

Last word:

Thoughtbuzz is an interesting and easy to use social monitoring tool for various brands and users who would like to keep an eye on their social influence and activity.

Isn’t taking care of parents next to godliness?



From the time we are young, our parents take care of us in every possible way. From ensuring that we have the correct eating and sleeping habits to teaching us values and virtues; from answering all our possible questions to quelling our curiosity to spending their hard earned money and time to see us grow into good human beings, our parents do so much for us. And thus, when they grow old, isn’t it our duty to take care of them?

The day he lied to me..

The day he lied..
The day he lied..


“He is a liar. He doesn’t even care what I feel. If he did, he would have had the guts to tell me the truth. All the times we spent talking sweet nothings for hours on end seem like a big joke.”

The first time our eyes met was when he trooped in coolly at 8:45am for an 8 am class. With unkempt hour and a shabby appearance overall, it looked as though he had just got up from sleep and set out for a long day ahead. He seemed too much into himself making me wonder if arrogance was his second name. For me though, classes were all about talking to everyone and making as many friends as possible.

Hyderabad Bloggers Meet: An experience..



I have always cribbed about the fact that in the cities where I have resided in, there have generally been no blogger meets at least during those periods. From Pune to Hyderabad, I always longed to attend one. Yes, some are nothing but brand promotions with tea, coffee and good food thrown in for good measure. But the fact that you get a chance to meet some amazing bloggers across the spectrum is quite exciting.

Just a day prior to the Hyderabad Bloggers Meet, Manjulika dropped a note to me on Twitter with the FB page link about the details of the meet. I managed to register just in time and the rest is history. Interestingly this was the 4th such meet. And I thought no blogger meets happen in Hyderabad :O.

Five Sentence Fiction: When my smartphone went missing..


My phone had always been my life which I took along wherever I went. Facebook, Twitter, Whatsapp, Instagram & games of all kinds – I used it for all of this and more.

But since the day I misplaced my phone, my life hasn’t been the same. Neither do I eat properly nor do I get sound sleep at night like before.

Seeing me in depression and despair all day long, you would seriously wonder as if life has been sucked out of my soul.

This post is a part of Write Over the Weekend, an initiative for Indian Bloggers by BlogAdda.

Blogging Connects..


There was a time when we had to spend hundreds of rupees to call someone anywhere in India let alone the world. Mobile phones were a rarity and a luxury as well. And the most famous one was Nokia (referred to as a brick by many because of its weight).

But today, technology has changed our perspective of the world around us in more ways than one. Whether its exploring the latest news or meeting and interacting with new people, finding jobs & perfect matches or building careers in music and writing, the online world gives each of us a great platform to do all this and more.

Are you a real braveheart?


Rapes, Sexual Harassment, Molestation & much more – Women in India face all of this each and every day of their lives. Whether its in offices, buses, stadiums or also sometimes at home from family members, women have to face the brunt of disgusting actions by men everywhere. Even after this, parents don’t control their sons but instead put up all kinds of restrictions on their daughters. Whether its about wearing the right clothes to avoid being stared at or not going out beyond 9pm at night, women are made to follow the rules because men can be beasts whenever they feel like, right?
