With data being both more plentiful and accessible than ever, tools that help users quickly make sense of it become increasingly valuable. As expected, much of the data being used comes from social sites. We come across mashups that access this data and provide interesting ways of looking at it from influence circles, tweet impacts and search results. Here is a look at four that caught our attention.
