At the beginning of this year I decided to dog food our analytics platform with some of my favorite sites and content to help me keep tabs on technology trends and discover useful stuff.
One of the included sites is Hacker News, which I don’t always have a lot of time to browse. By using Enginuity Analytics I was able to setup monitoring of Hacker News for new content and filter it based on how influential and socially relevant is was across the web (social shares + social commentary sentiment). I then enabled the smart report feature to periodically send summarized email alerts about trending content.
After a year of monitoring Hacker News I have generated an analytics overview report to share the Top 10 Socially Relevant Hacker News Posts of 2015.
