Reddit Analytics Tools for Writers

SocialTimes editor Devon Glenn shared a new suite of Reddit analytics tools today on the Morning Media Menu. Using those tools, we’ve created a word cloud of the top 20 topics on the technology subreddit (embedded above).

Glenn also talked about a free set of Tumblr tools that were released earlier this week. Here’s more about Reddit Insights:

Using reddit’s API, a five-person team at the San Francisco coding academy Hack Reactor has created such a tool: Reddit Insight. In addition to a search bar for tracking real-time statistics on individual posts or scores for individual accounts, the website features statistics on individual subreddits, or subject threads, on the link-sharing site that redditors can use to measure the success of their own activities against those of the larger community.
