This morning HootSuite announced it has acquired uberVU, an innovative social analytics solution.

Not surprisingly, financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

uberVU’s roster of more than 200 enterprise customers include 3M, NBC, Heinz, Fujitsu, SC Johnson, Getty Images, indiegogo, and L’Occitane. In uberVU, HootSuite gains a best-in-class analytics product and a dedicated team of world-class engineers.
