Social - Can I Sort Results By Geo-Location?

Modified on: 2014-11-14 14:27:43 -0600

We currently do not have this feature enabled for the following reason: Traditionally methods rely on IP address identification for geo-location; but this doesn't work for much of social media (not everyone on Twitter is geo-located at their co-location in San Francisco). Some social media content is tagged with the geographical location of the author. However, the percentage of posts/mentions that have this information appended is very small, and we have seen even that small amount of data to be highly inaccurate. We likely will not have this feature until coverage and accuracy are greater than they are today.
