It can be hard to tell which of your supporters are actively engaging on social media about topics that matter to you. Our Partner, NGP-VAN, is making this easier for their customers by providing free initial social matches for publicly available Facebook, Twitter, and Klout profiles.

Now, when NGP clients look up a record, they will see their contact’s Facebook and Twitter profiles, as well as how many friends and followers they have. This information is searchable, and can be combined with all the other information in their database. A recent NGP blog post gives a few examples of how you can use this new social data to your advantage.
