Tracking and visualizing social media streams in real-time and across multiple social networks can be a challenge. In partnership with Microsoft RedBit set out to address this challenge. Social Cloud allows users to monitor various social media channels such as Twitter, Instagram and FourSquare, aggregate and process that data (e.g.generate word clouds) and expose real-time streams to web & mobile clients.
RedBit leveraged various Windows Azure features such as Linux Virtual Machines, Service Bus, Azure Websites and Azure Mobile Services. As part of the system RedBit also delivered an administration client for iPhone, Android and Windows sharing a large portion of the code accross the three platforms using Xamarin. RedBit successfully delivered the project and also open sourced the project on GitHub.
