Social media user

When it comes to tracking the digital presence of a user on social media, there are two things to consider. You may want to track all posts made by the user. Secondly, you may want to track all mentions of this user by other social media users. This feature lets you do both. Simply enter the username of the person you're interested in, and the platform will display all the relevant results associated with that user.
