|http://www.citeulike.org/ - Find out who's reading what you're reading.|
|http://figshare.com/ - A repository where users can make their research available in a manner that allows it to be easily cited, shared, and discovered. It tracks views and shares on a few social media platforms.|
|http://www.papercritic.com/ - Allows users to share and review scholarly publications. It also tracks mentions of articles on Twitter.|

Though some of their services are fee-based, their Altmetric Bookmarklet is a free service that provides metrics on recent literature.
Plum Analytics is still in the development stages. Users are able to sign up for the beta version of the service, though, and the site provides a lot of detail on how it gathers data
