Can datasift listen to when someone likes a post or page on facebook


#1

I would like to know when someone ‘likes’ a photo, post or page on facebook or ‘follows’ my company on twitter - can we listen for that? If so, how?

We are currently unable to know when a "Like" or similar event happens. We utilize Facebook's Open Graph Search API for public posts, etc to gather data from Facebook. This method is unfortunately fairly limited in the amount of data that is returned.

We have a couple releases for the Facebook data source that will improve the quality of data that is returned to you.
