Introducing Your New Facebook Friend, Sysomos Scout


Jenny Force Jenny Force, VP of Marketing

Just a few months back we announced our partnership with DataSift to bring the Sysomos community access to aggregated and anonymized Facebook Topic Data, the new way Facebook shares valuable insights from Facebook without compromising consumer trust. Our partnership with DataSift meant we could start building something for you, the savvy digital marketer, to get working with Facebook Topic Data in the best possible way yet.

Definition of "Scout"

Today, we’re happy to share the early availability of Sysomos Scout, a new tool offering key insights into what events, brands, subjects and activities audiences are engaging with and sharing content around on Facebook.

Visualized in elegant and easy-to-read dashboards, Scout can help you better understand Facebook audiences and shows you:

  • what people are saying about your brand, competitors, and industry
  • how often your products are mentioned compared to your competitors
  • what people think and how audiences react to multi-channel marketing campaigns
  • what’s driving brand recommendation, purchase, advocacy or churn
  • the demographics behind the audience engaging with your brand across Facebook, including age, gender, country
  • the full picture of the social web by cross referencing Facebook data with data from other social sources



Getting started with Sysomos Scout is quick and easy; in minutes you can set up search terms to find relevant interactions and activity around your brand mentions, campaign terms, or related topics. Once search terms are set Sysomos Scout starts collecting ‘Interactions’, including stories, shares, likes or comments that match the query into a dataset.
