When I first came to the Museum of Life and Science, I started an effort to listen and inventory every time I found a Google Alert, Tweetbeep, and various Feed Your Inbox subscriptions through delicious.com/ncmls.

 

Yesterday I took a look at the links and counted how many we had since I started recording them. There are over 1,800 mentions of the Museum (including press, which comprises 13%). The two high points were coverage of the Prepared Food Tax, and the Dino Trail Blogger Preview/Brontosaurus Beheading.

 

It's been a worthwhile activity and I encourage anyone responsible for measuring word of mouth and social media at an institution to consider this sort of inventory process.

I use Google Alerts, Twitter Search, Update Scanner, Various Flickr Groups, Viewzi, Addictomatic and friends and family to discover when someone blogs about the Museum. Everything comes to my Gmail inbox labeled as "ALERT."
