Social media insights platform ThinkUp announced a new beta release, with several Facebook-centric features added to the open-source web application.

When we profiled ThinkUp in June, we mentioned that the free product enables users to track and monitor Facebook and Twitter content including posts, tweets, replies, retweets, friends, followers, and links.

Now, beta version 15 of the platform added the following features to the mix:

  • The ability to store and display post links, titles, images, descriptions, and captions from Facebook;
  • The ability to store and display Facebook likes, as well as to sort posts by most liked for the past week and all-time;
  • The ability to capture the location of Facebook friends and plot replies on a Google map via a geo-encoder plug-in; and
  • A recent activity dashboard bar chart that displays replies, likes, and retweets.

The new beta also includes several fixes, as well as improvements to already existing features, such as:

  • Upgrading the Facebook plug-in to OAuth 2.0;
  • Improved login security;
  • More support for Twitter address shortener t.co;
  • The ability to enable plug-ins by default when installing ThinkUp, and
  • A quicker dashboard due to the use of caching.
