3 Geeks and a Law Blog A broad definition of competitive intelligence is the action of defining, gathering, analyzing, and distributing intelligence about products, customers, competitors and any aspect of the environment needed to support executives and managers in making strategic decisions for an organization. Blogs Communications tools include blogs, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Ning. Blogs can be used both to collect intelligence and deliver intelligence results.

Researchers may use feeds to develop complex intelligence-delivery systems, tracking news and comments relating to competitors, clients, markets, industries, business and finance, politics, local/regional/national cases and legislation, and any other key intelligence topics.
