Which tools are available to collect social network data, aside from Netvizz, Twecoll, Divud, and Psychemedia Script?
I am using a Node server and hyve.js library to collect data from different social networks. Then you can store it in a mongoDB for example.
One very good thing about Hyve.js is that the guys from Tawlk have created a clever USMF United Social Media Format to help you dealing with tons of different APIs.
I wrote a post about that here : USMF : One format to rule them all
