SAN FRANCISCO, July 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As the world comes together for an epic summer of sport, Socialbakers, the leading social media analytics experts, has made cheerleading more social with the launch of CheerMeter, a new social media tool that tracks and analyzes real-time global Twitter buzz around sporting events.
Free to use for all social media fans, CheerMeter (http://cheerforlondon.socialbakers.com), reveals hour-by-hour and day-by-day which sports, athletes, nations and brands are creating the greatest buzz on Twitter over the next few weeks. Tweets are also segmented by language for the whole world to see which countries are most vocal in support of their national teams.
Athletes won't be the only stars generating buzz online. Lead brand sponsors are also looking to capitalize on social buzz and Socialbakers' CheerMeter tracks brands' share of voice to see who is getting the most out of their sponsorship investment.

As the world tunes in to watch its finest athletes compete, all the major social media platforms will explode with noise during this busy period. We've built the CheerMeter to act as a virtual stadium for all sports fans, supporters and critics to track the social media performance of individual sporting events, athletes and associated brands in real time."
