Statusbrew enables you to monitor and interact with conversations across multiple networks from a unified inbox. You can organize mentions, messages, comments, and reviews in separate views to prioritize the most important ones.


Our automation builder allows you to set rules based on conditions such as sentiment, keywords, UTM, and campaigns to auto-hide or delete any inappropriate comments on Facebook and Instagram. These automations will protect your brand from unwanted spam, trolls, and hate speech when your team is not around.


On top of that, you can receive alerts via email, mobile, desktop, or Slack for any negative comments, mentions, and reviews. Also, these conversations can be automatically routed to your community manager or CS team via rules to mitigate brand identity damage.

Statusbrew also lets you listen beyond your feed on X (Twitter) by setting up a dedicated inbox for keywords or phrases relevant to your brand.


Furthermore, you gain access to detailed metrics of your brand listening performance, including:

  • Number of mentions received for your brand
