With SocialBro, you can easily visualize the growth of your Twitter community after each update.

The top panel Community Stats shows you the evolution of your Twitter community.

If you have just registered in SocialBro, you won’t find the history of your account, because the application can only store the data from the time of registration. You will always see the history from the day you registered to the present day.

In the Community Stats panel you will see the growth in the number of:

– Community

– Followers

– Friends

– Tweets

– Lists

In addition to seeing the evolution of your followers, friends and Tweets at the same time, you can also select each one individually.

In orange you can see your Followers Forecast, which is an estimation of the evolution of your community in the near future.

If you want to see the growth over a given period of time, just select the area you want to analyze. Pass the mouse over the chart to get accurate information by date.

To return to the original graph click on Reset Zoom.

Remaining on the SocialBro dashboard and looking at the panels below the tools menu, you will find many widgets which show a summary of the new data after each sync: the new followers, new friends, etc. As mentioned before you can change the time span e.g. to see activity for the past week or month, using the “period” drop down box above the global stats panel.

In each widget, you will see a sample of the users avatars. In addition to exploring each widget by clicking browse, you can share the information you find in each widget.
