Consumer Alert: ReputationChanger.com Releases the Reputation Command Center Tools Free to the Public

ReputationChanger.com Is Making Its Best-in-Class Reputation Command Center Technology Available to Consumers, Free of Charge and With No Obligation to Sign Up for Anything

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/28/13 -- Since its 2009 inception, ReputationChanger.com has routinely been honored as the top online reputation management company in the world, including a prestigious accolade from TopSEOs. A significant part of the company's reputation for efficacy and innovation stems from its groundbreaking Reputation Command Center technology; the Reputation Command Center has long offered the company's clients with a platform for proactively monitoring and managing their online image -- and now, this best-in-class technology has been made available to consumers across the world, free of charge and with no obligation to sign up for further services.

Announcing the company's new, complimentary reputation management services, ReputationChanger.com President Michael Zammuto explains why the company has decided to make these resources more widely accessible. "The simple reality is that every person and every brand has an online reputation; it may be a positive one or it may be negative, but everyone has an online reputation," he remarks. "Moreover, that online reputation can ultimately prove make or break; what people say about you on the Internet matters a great deal, yet, troublingly, many individuals and companies still do not know exactly what kind of online reputation they actually have."

That could change, with the advent of ReputationChanger.com's complimentary Reputation Command Center service. The Reputation Command Center is the heart of the company's entire operation, an online hub where clients can monitor the Web for any mentions of their name. Zammuto says the Reputation Command Center is ReputationChanger.com's flagship online reputation monitoring and management platform -- and that it more than exceeds the capabilities of any other product or service on the market.

"The Reputation Command Center's monitoring tools allow for users to scour the Internet for any mention of their name," Zammuto explains. "That includes the name of an individual, of a company, or of a branded product. The Reputation Command Center lets users determine exactly where their reputation stands by combing the Web for reviews, social media mentions, search engine listings, and beyond."

While online reputation alerts are not necessarily new, the Reputation Command Center offers threat assessments and monitoring tools that are technologically superior to the products of any other company -- including Google itself. "Our online reputation monitoring tools go further than the Google Search algorithms, or even Google Alerts, could ever go," affirms Zammuto. Indeed, The Reputation Command Center monitors online mentions in the deep Web; this includes mentions of the client's name or branded terms in Facebook and Twitter conversations, as well as in search listings only cataloged by Bing or by Yahoo.

"We are the only company in the world offering this kind of comprehensive reputation monitoring platform -- and we are offering it to consumers totally free of charge, without any obligation," enthuses Zammuto. "Individuals and corporations alike are invited to scan the Web and find out what kind of listings and social mentions are out there. Knowing your online reputation is the first step toward either defending or improving it."

For clients who are less than thrilled with what the Reputation Command Center reveals about their online portrayal, further services are available from the industry-leading reputation defense company. Paying Reputation Changer subscribers have their Reputation Command Center dashboard augmented with a comprehensive social media management tool. "The idea behind the social media management tool is that clients can proactively build their brand and establish strong, positive, and authoritative online content, all in the interest of suppressing or counterbalancing negative listings," offers Zammuto.

In particular, the Reputation Command Center's exclusive social media management tools allow users to manage as many as 100 social media accounts at once, including accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. Zammuto says more social networks are being integrated all the time.

The Reputation Command Center is designed to provide Reputation Changer clients -- and now, non-paying, non-subscribing customers -- with resources for taking charge of their own online image, but the company continues to offer a variety of more exclusive, boutique services, designed to address particular reputational needs. "One example of what Reputation Changer can do is Wikipedia management," Zammuto declares. "Many clients, especially businesses and public figures, come to us because their Wikipedia entry is covered with negative, unflattering information, or else is riddled with errors. Reputation Changer's team can help clients clean up their Wikipedia pages, removing inaccuracies and framing information in the most positive, brand-enhancing way possible."

Zammuto says the examples of ReputationChanger's high-end services, for individuals and for brands, just go on from there. "Another service we provide is a review widget, which clients can affix to their online properties to help them gather consumer feedback and effectively moderate and manage those reviews," he says. "The tool is SEO-driven, which means that brands can make sure their best reviews and ratings are highlighted on the first page of Google search results."

Ultimately, ReputationChanger.com offers a comprehensive suite of online reputation management services, including PR blitz strategies, brand enhancement campaigns, and more. What unites all of these strategies is a zeal for technological development -- and a desire to help individuals and brands protect themselves against online defamation. "ReputationChanger.com is heavily invested in R&D, and the best-in-class technology implemented in the Reputation Command Center, the review widget, and all of these other products proves it," notes Zammuto.

"Still, what characterizes our company most fundamentally is the passion we have for giving clients a say in their own online portrayal," he concludes. "That is why we have made this unprecedented move of offering free, no-strings-attached access to the Reputation Command Center, and that is why so many clients trust their online branding to ReputationChanger.com."

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have s...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
