My short-term goal is to have simple graphs of some basic metrics over time:
- Facebook page likes and shares, posts, post likes and shares.
- Twitter followers (and following), tweets, favorites, retweets.
- Google+ followers, views, +1’s, shares.
I’m not sure why I want this data, but if I do find a good reason in the future, I’d better start tracking it now!
In this post, I describe how I went from the idea to start collecting the data, to a deployed data collecting app using Google App Engine, in under 5 hours.
