Is Cloud Monitoring available for Facebook?
Cloud Monitoring, Facebook
In the May 2010 release, Facebook has been added to Cloud Monitoring. This allows the addition of custom monitors for a specific Facebook fan page which can then be searched from within the Cloud Monitor console.
The Facebook page monitors will search and return results from the specific Facebook page that has been designated in the configuration. Multiple Facebook page monitors can be added to search across many pages.
Respond functionality is supported for Facebook page monitors and is viewed as a reply to the Facebook page post.
