My thanks to ThinkUp for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. ThinkUp is social analytics for regular people. I admit I rolled my eyes a little when I heard about it, because I’ve seen so many other analytics tools/apps for social networking, and they’re usually just awful — dreadful interfaces, useless information. ThinkUp is different. It’s simple, beautiful, and clear. It’s just a way to make Twitter (and Facebook) more fun. One of the stats ThinkUp tracks: how often you drop the f-word. (Mine shot up as the Yankees season ended.)

ThinkUp has no ads, and they don’t sell your data. It’s a service you simply pay for — and they have a 14-day free trial. Sign up and see for yourself.
