In this weeks strategy section we talk about the new hot topic of streaming. We talk about MeerKat, Periscope, Twitter and more.
We also cover how this will be totally disruptive to the way many brands communicate. Here are some other topics we cover about this:
- Is it Good or Bad for inbound marketing
- What is streaming at a high level view
- Apps you can use for streaming
- Twitter acquires Periscope sorry Meerkat
It would be great if in your HubSpot template builder, you could tell a module to be smart. The idea behind this is that once they subscribe that entire module could be removed or replaced with a different module.

Social Reports now features your most popular social posts
Social Reports now calls out two of your top messages, your most clicked message and your message with the most interactions in the “Here’s what your followers thought” section in Social Reports.
To check them out, go to Social Reports in your Social Inbox App. In every report but Reach, there’s a section called “Here’s what your followers thought.” That’s where you’ll find details on your your most clicked message and the message with the most interactions.
Here's what the "most clicked message" looks like:
This is your most clicked message in whichever time frame you’ve selected to view the report in. If you click on “View messages with the most clicks”, you’ll be taken to the Published dashboard to see which messages have the most clicked in the time frame you selected.
Here's what the "message with most interactions" looks like:
Your message with the most interactions: This is the message with the most interactions (retweets, favorites, etc) in whichever time frame you’ve selected to view the report in. If you click on “View messages with the most interactions”, you’ll be taken to the Published dashboard to see which messages have the most interactions in the time frame you selected.
