In a nutshell: we aggregate user activity from dozens of social hubs, and use that data for analytics, benchmarking and so forth. So, if you think of links as "votes" as the core-data for Google's PageRank.. Than at PostRank we're extending that graph with dozens of other gestures: bookmarks, likes, comments, etc, and building our ranking on top of that! I'm sure you can imagine the myriad of ways of how that data can be applied in different contexts.

Super excited to join Google and take it to the next level!
