In the Referrer Type report, the breakdown of domains under Social Networks looked like it hadn't been updated in ages, t.co and other core social referrers were being instead categorised under "Other Web Sites". I've spoken to support about this, and it looks like thankfully this week they updated it so t.co and others are now categorised under Social Networks, but there are still some that are wrong. Slashdot.org, ycombinator.com, and hootsuite.com are some of our biggest social referrers and I need to get them included in the Social Networks report and not under "Other Web Sites", so our reporting is more accurate. Can these please be adjusted?

Maybe there could be a general solution for both SE and social networks:

Yes, I agree! An interface where you could add or edit domains in each category would be very helpful. Our sites focus on traffic & PVs, not ecommerce, so its very important to understand clearly where our referrers are coming from and tracking that accurately. Everyone has different sites and engines that they receive traffic from and the inflexibility of categorising that is a big issue.

Have you tried using Marketing Channel Processing Rules to create your custom categories?

Yes, that didn't fulfill what I am looking to do.
