SocialTools is a patented software application of Performics, which monitors the performance and efficiency of selected Facebook pages. SocialTools calculates basic metrics, such as numbers of fans, likes, comments or the sociodemographic profile, and also metrics which map the activity of fans and administrators of the Facebooks pages: how active they are, what they write about, how often they write, etc. All this is shown for each brand separately or as a competitive comparison between different brands.
