Location-based Social Media Intelligence Platform Geofeedia announced that it has closed a $3.5M Series A round of financing. Geofeedia enables organizations to filter and analyze geo-tagged social media content in real-time across multiple sources in any global location. Users search for a city, address or location name, draw a virtual perimeter around their specific area of interest, and access geo-tagged social media content from within those boundaries from Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr, and Picasa in a matter of seconds. From there, users visualize, organize and analyze the geo-tagged social data using five different views, filter and search by keywords, usernames and date ranges, and store or export the data for additional data mining.
