For everyone hearing about it for the first time, ThinkUp is the first free app that lets you to archive your Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ activity, a powerful open-source tool for analyzing and searching through the activity of your social networks. Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated, rapidly-expanding development community, we're thrilled to announce this new milestone.
A sample of ThinkUp's features:
- Archive your Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ history
- Get an at-a-glance overview of your network activity from ThinkUp's dashboard
- Search and export your complete post history and post replies
- Track your follower growth over time
- Geocode replies and visualize them on an interactive map
- Publish and embed conversations on your blog or website
What does "out of beta" mean? Back in April, the Expert Labs team and the ThinkUp community defined the requirements to meet our 1.0 milestone. It came down to four points:
- Feature-complete. All major, initial features of the software are built.
- Documentation-complete. All major user and developer documentation is written and published.
- Reasonably bug-free. All major known bugs are fixed.
- Security-hardened. The software implements best practices around security and privacy. All major, known security and privacy bugs are fixed, and best practices for software administrators are documented.
For those of you who are running beta 17, the changes in 1.0 are almost entirely cosmetic fixes to the redesign. ThinkUp is now compatible with Internet Explorer 8, has Tweet and +1 buttons on public reply thread pages, plus a few other minor fixes. There are no database migrations in this release.
- 28 commits
- From 4 authors (1 first-timer!)
- Contains a total of 8,414 passing tests
- Includes 38,145 words of application documentation
ThinkUp may be out of beta, but this doesn't mean we're done. It means we've just gotten started. Now that ThinkUp is a stable platform with proven utility, we can look forward to future plugins that capture data from new networks and provide more insight into the conversations we have online every day.
THANK YOU (yes you) for contributing to this long-awaited release over the past almost 2 years. The open source model only works if there's a strong community of smart people willing to work together toward common goals, and we have that here.
Let us know if you have any trouble with the upgrade to 1.0.
