I've been using Mention for several months to receive daily notifications when Product Hunt or my name is mentioned online. I like Notify's Slack-integrated approach, which serves as more of an ambient notification feed for these alerts and may inspire more team conversation than individual emails.

@rrhoover Big fan of Mention - very useful.
@rrhoover Now that I know this I'm going to start mentioning your name in really odd corners of the Internet. I'm also going to signup for Mention

@rrhoover Thanks ! I love this slack integration, it's a great idea, a nice approach to media monitoring at the basic level. Now if you do want to have Mention into Slack, well there is an easy way with Zapier : Full details here : http://blog.mention.com/increase...

@rrhoover @_jamesmundy Awesome to hear, James. Would be great to learn more about how you're using Mention. :)
Looks great. However, seems like number of sources you can get notification is quite restricted. I recommend you try http://Brand24.net which monitors whole web + provides easy to use analytics like top influencers, most interactive pieces of content, etc. :)

Really interesting product, love that it integrate with Slack that way you don't have to open another tab for Mention. Unfortunately, you are limited to using Slack, the only downfall
@karlclement yeah i can see where that would be annoying--though maybe its something that can be iterated out in the next version
@karlclement @adammarx13 I don't really know if I would want it to be iterated out--I enjoy using Slack and don't mind it running in the background, sending me notifications when it's important. I think this does beat Mention, both in terms of the number of comments, and in terms of keeping on top of things.
@karlclement Hey Karl! If it's helpful you can also integrate Mention with Slack or HipChat and other messaging services using Zapier.com to be notified when mentioned! Happy to discuss more.
@karlclement Hey, Thanks for hunting us in the first place, you might integrate with other messaging apps or even other social media tools in the near future, but before that we need to make sure that the users on Slack love it and they have what they really need. before starting a new integration. did you check our latest updates.. will be happy to receive your valuable feedback . Thanks again :)
Big ups to Notify team for straight up copying Slack's home page. I mean this non-snarkily—it immediately conveyed trust to me subconsciously because it looked and felt like Slack (because it *is* Slack's exact home page design). Maybe unfair, maybe cheap, maybe not. Whatever, I like it.
@thetylerhayes We do love Slack :D
@karlclement this is really cool. definitely something i could see using (at the very least trying) in order to keep tabs on growth and trajectory. cool post!
