Reppler analyzes the tone and the words used by users and their network of connections. It looks into where a user's posts are coming from and even describes what the timing of the posts might implicate about the user as well. Reppler identifies potential issues and risks that reside within a person's social network makeup and gives them recommendations for improving their online reputation. Finally, Reppler calculates an online image score for its users and tells them what this means for them and to others.Show more screenshots »

Reppler provides an easy to read and comprehensive report with simple action-items listed to improve one's score.
For Facebook users, the registration process for Reppler is incredibly easy. Reppler will not report or share any information about its users that it uncovers, however new users just need to allow Reppler access to their Facebook account to start the process of analyzing their online reputation.
Reppler is a free service. Seeing that they were just acquired by another company, the future is uncertain if this service will become a premium one in the future. Therefore users are encouraged to take advantage of a free scan of their social media appearance through Reppler today.
