What can you use the app for?

Mention.net is an app that can be used to monitor the web mentions of one's brand, industry, company or even their competitors. They'll be informed in weal-time about any mentions that occur on the web or on social networks. Mention.net monitors millions of different sources and doesn't miss anything that's published on social networks, news sites, forums, blogs or any web pages. The app is smart too in that it learns over time what mentions can be disregarded as junk or homonyms and which are applicable. This helps save the user time as they use the Mention.net app and don't have to manually sort through the mentions each and every time. Additionally, users can utilize the Mention.net app with others and even assign certain tasks to other team members. Alerts are sent out in real-time, so users can be notified immediately as they are mentioned online. Users can also program the Mention.net app to react to mentions in an intelligent way including retweeting certain mentions or sharing positive mentions on Facebook.
