*Archive, Search, Sort and Analyze Facebook News Feeds - DiscoverText beta
is live*

Starting today, you can login to http://discovertext.com using your Facebook
credentials. Once you are in, you can create a project and start archiving
available Facebook News Feeds. Archives can be searched, search results can
go into buckets, and buckets can be converted to data sets to be coded.

We also handle general RSS feeds. Later this week we'll be launching other
API features for capturing twitter feeds. Interesting in collecting and
studying everything with a certain hashtag, or, say, a constellation of
similar hastags? DiscoverText will make this easy to do.

In a nutshell: visit http://discovertext.com, register using the Facebook
Open Graph, and away you go! To see the steps involved, visit the help wiki
