Company Summary

Verifeed makes sense of social conversations to provide media and businesses with trusted social intelligence about the "who" and the "what" and compelling conversational content. Insights are actionable, reputations are scored for influence, expertise and credibility, and discovery is increasingly automated. Partners grow and engage user communities and get relevant 'fly on the wall' insights to drive marketing strategy and customer engagement.
