Geofeedia, a location-based social media monitoring, intelligence and analysis platform, today announced version 4.0 of its platform and a new iOS app. Through this new version of Geofeedia, users can gather location-tagged data across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Picasa, Flickr, Sina Weibo and other channels.

Through the iOS app, Geofeedia users and marketers can gather data based on their current locations, or create/monitor any location.

The company’s research found that 74 percent of social posts can’t be discovered via hashtag or keyword monitoring. Additionally, six percent of posts only have a photo or video without text. Geofeedia’s technology allows marketers and users to keep a finger on the pulse of what’s going on around them or in a certain area. Geofeedia serves more than 400 organizations and 10,000 users, aiming to double its client base by the end of the year.
