YC-backed Crowdbooster Launches Social Media Monitoring Dashboard That Does The Thinking For You

Crowdbooster, a Y Combinator-backed startup, is debuting its intelligent social media optimization, monitoring and analytics platform for companies and brands. What differentiates Crowdbooster from other monitoring platforms is that the startup’s technology works behind the scenes to understand a user’s social activity, and then makes recommendations about what to share, when, and with whom.

The company’s platform will automatically surface the most popular links to share; features cross-posting to Twitter and Facebook, based on popularity and content fit; allows you to teceive alerts when influential people follow (measured by Klout); schedule Tweets and posts based on best time; respond to missed Tweets; and thank the most engaged followers. And the company’s customized recommendations surface the best content to share and suggests when
to publish for maximum exposure.

The startup’s application also offers detailed analytics across Facebook and Twitter, including data around the popularity of content shared based on Retweets, Mentions, Replies,
Likes, Impressions, and Comments; follower or fan growth over time; the most influential and engaged follower and more.

Crowdbooster is already being used by a number of agencies and brands including rapper Lil
Wayne, The Los Angeles Times, Wieden+Kennedy, JetBlue, Education Week, Ben & Jerry’s, The Roxy Theatre, Crowd Surf, and Stussy. Crowdbooster is a freemium offering; the application is free for up to 3 profiles and access to enhanced recommendations and more profiles cost $20 per month.

The company has also raised a round of seed funding from Steven Chen, Esther Dyson, Nils Johnson, Charles River Ventures, Quest Venture Partners, StartupAngel, Royce Disini, Tony Pham, Brian Shire, Adora Cheung, Jonathan Pines, and Y Combinator.
