*Brilliant* Tagboard - A Social Media Search Hub For #Hashtags
Every once in a while amongst the social media haystack of blog posts, tweets, updates etc there is something that stands out that is different, visual (we all like visual) and simple. Yesterday, I saw one of these little nuggets. Even better 'it does exactly what it says on the tin' - Tagboard. [Thanks to Kirsten Robinette for highlighting it on Twitter]
It searches for #hashtags across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, App.net, Vine and Google Plus, and displays the results visually. As I said simple. You can choose to search across all of the networks or just search individually.
Obviously this could have many uses within recruitment - displaying jobs posted with specific hashtags, employerbranding, company hashtags, industry hashtags and importantly cross-platform hashtag campaigns (agencies will love this tool!). This one is down to your imagination. Go an try it by search for some of your #hashtags!
As an example I have set up a #SocialRecruiting Tagboard shown below and it has pulled the #socialrecruiting from Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, Instagram, App.net and Vine
I have no doubt that this will develop further, adding the ability to Follow Tagboards, share Tagboards and Share individual Tags on the boards.
It already has a nice feature with web browser extensions for Safari and Chrome:
Safari — Download
Search any hashtag via Tagboard directly from Safari's location bar. Just type the hashtag (with the '#' symbol) and hit return. (Safari versions 6+)
Chrome — Download
Search any hashtag via Tagboard directly from Google Chrome's omnibar. Just type the hashtag (with the '#' symbol) and hit return. (Also works when searching a hashtag via Google, Bing, and Yahoo.)
Personally I really like the site and think that this is going to be a big hit, and quickly. What are you waiting for?
I work with recruitment agencies and corporates to help them helping them understand and leverage the different social media networks to improve their recruitment strategy, recruitment process, candidate attraction, employer branding and content marketing strategy.
