Two Northern Virginia news and social media information companies have merged to form Reston-based Synoptos Inc.
The company is a combination of Infoition and OhMyGov, which were founded in in 2003 and 2009, respectively.
The new company will offer daily executive news briefs and real time media alerts, influencer identification and campaign strategy development, media monitoring software, and customized intelligence and performance measurement reports.

OhMyGov provided media and political intelligence software that tracks the spread of information across the Web and helps organizations better understand how people, politicians, and government agencies react to issues and events.
