From 2006 to 2010, Social Target produced a series of buyers’ guides for social media analysis. As the market continued to grow and change, however, our original approach—find everyone—no longer fit. In 2011, we moved our complete database of companies in the industry to a freely accessible directory at Social Media Analysis, our industry news site. The directory now features well over 400 companies.

For information about our current projects, please visit our research page.
