Top Posts of 2011

I don't really do predictions—at least, not publicly. I do, however, find it interesting to look back and see which posts have drawn the most attention in the past year. As in previous years' lists (2010, 2009), some of the most-read posts are old ones—going all the way back to 2006 (!).

Remember these?

  1. New Dashboards Blend Analytics Sources - September 2010 (#9 in 2010)

  2. Monitoring Social Media Before You Have a Budget - May 2008 (#1 in 2009 & 2010)

  3. What Does Salesforce-Radian6 Deal Mean for Everyone Else? - March 2011

  4. Global Social Media Usage Patterns - January 2011

  5. Human vs. machine analysis - April 2007 (#4 in 2010)

  6. Visual text analysis - April 2007 (#2 in 2010)

  7. The Specialization of Social Media Analysis - March 2011

  8. Professional-Strength Social Media Aggregators - June 2010 (#8 in 2010)

  9. Text Analytics in the Cloud - February 2011

  10. Defining social media relations - November 2006
With only four of the top ten from 2011, this view always misses what I think of as the more interesting posts, which is why I choose my own list for revisiting 2011. All of which sets the stage for what's breaking out of the drafts folder next.

Happy New Year.
