Geofeedia is a very interesting new venture that searches social media based on a pre-established geo-location. For example, if you are interested in a particular neighborhood, you can use the tool to “geo-fence” the area of the neighborhood (by drawing a polygon around it) and it will start tracking the social media events geo-located in that area (Twitter, Instagram, Picasa, YouTube and Flickr). This is very interesting for understanding social media events taking place in a particular area. However, the platform is paid and not open-source.
