Sure, there are many social monitoring tools available today, but merely listening and getting a high-level overview of what’s being said is no longer enough – how do you actually make sense of all this information and build a successful strategy from it?
Twitter just launched its "Certified Products Program" to highlight "the best products and services to thrive on Twitter." The program is meant to help companies find "the best tools to engage with their customers" and "understand what people are saying about them on Twitter."
Push and Query Builder simplify management of big data streams and enable users to uncover relevant intelligence.
"Push allows businesses to more easily integrate and analyze Social Data alongside their own business data. Using DataSift, companies can set up feeds and manage when, how and where the data will be pushed."
"DataSift’s Query Builder wants to give non-technical managers the ability to do massive data searches with complex filters."
DataSift selected as a 2012 AlwaysOn Global 250 winner for outstanding industry innovation.
Most people forget that Wikipedia--one of the largest crowd-sourced data repositories in the world and the sixth most popular Web site overall--is a social-media site, but DataSift's new site highlights just how social the wiki tool is.
"The good folks over at social media data platform DataSift monitored what Twitter users were saying about the IPO throughout the day and came up with some interesting conclusions. Turns out, the ups and downs of how Twitter's users felt about the stock pretty much mirrored the price of Facebook's stock as the day progressed."
"DataSift does not limit searches based on keywords and applies natural language processing to turn unstructured data into structured, digestible information. The company's product allows companies of any size to define extremely complex filters, including location, gender, sentiment, language, and even influence based on Klout score, to provide quick and very specific insight and analysis."
"DataSift, a data analysis company that provides developers and third parties with access to Twitter, Facebook and other social data sources, is teaming up with NewsCred to allow clients to perform deep data analysis and monitoring of social media and news sources."
"Firms can search tweets back to January 2010 in order to plan marketing campaigns, target influential users or even try to predict certain events."
"This data is used for all kinds of purposes, such as hedge funds that are tracking indicators for stocks, news organizations analyzing how stories are performing, brands tracking the performance of product launches, social media monitoring companies tracking conversations and corporations looking to correlate point-of-sale data with Twitter sentiment."
"DataSift’s new Historics service promises to mine the Twitter archives going back two years for insights that could guide business decisions on future strategies."
Robert Bailey, chief executive officer of DataSift, talks about the company's analysis of data from social media companies and the outlook for customers. DataSift manages large volumes of information from social data sources including Twitter Inc. He speaks with Emily Chang on Bloomberg Television's "Bloomberg West."
"Because DataSift can search for Twitter posts and information using metadata contained in Tweets, the possibilities of mining data at a very specific level are endless. DataSift does not limit searches based on keywords and allows companies of any size to define extremely complex filters, including location, gender, sentiment, language, and even influence based on Klout score, to provide quick and very specific insight and analysis."DataSift Founder Passes CEO Torch On To Former SimpleGeo VP Rob Bailey
"Halstead will become DataSift's CTO, and the role of CEO will go to Rob Bailey, a former Yahoo bizdev exec who most recently served as VP of Business Development at SimpleGeo, which was just acquired by Urban Airship."
"DataSift allows user's to define a "stream" using search parameters, such as keywords or locations, and immediately begin to receive data in real-time, as these posts from Twitter and blogs appear around the web. As one of two companies in the world with a licence to access Twitter's full "fire-hose", DataSift offers users the ability to search for posts using the metadata contained in a tweet, making it far more powerful than the searches offered by its competitors."
"Anyone can say anything on Twitter, and with Datasift you can ask whether anything is being said. 80%+ of retweets of @justinbieber are from Females, the company says."
"If Web 3.0 is about big data, then DataSift will surely be among the next generation of companies. The organization, which is most visibly the company behind TweetMeme, has today secured $6 million in funding.DataSift describes itself as "a real-time social-data mining platform"; translated into English it means it takes a number of social data sources, including Twitter (DataSift is one of only two companies globally licensed by Twitter to re-syndicate its content), Facebook, WordPress and others and allows users to mine that data in a highly granular way."
"Most tweets are inane, but a million may contain valuable information. Fed through clever algorithms, a torrent of microblogs can reveal changes in a nation's mood. Hence the excitement about a new market: the sale and analysis of real-time social-media data. DataSift, a start-up, will soon launch a marketplace for such information."U.K. Social Media Tracker DataSift Opens Shop in U.S.
"Along with Gnip, DataSift is one of two companies in the world licensed to make Twitter’s fire-hose of data available for non-display purposes. This allows organizations to make a very detailed analysis of who tweeted what and where."
"Running a business is not like programming, it is a multitude of disciplines involving operations, sales, marketing, finance and HR, and most importantly it involves dealing with people. These skills IMHO in the most part are not skills that programmers have or wish to have (and I count myself as one of them)."
"I believe that democratising data access is going to fundamentally change the market, and bring a whole new wave of innovation in which companies can concentrate on building product rather than re-inventing data aggregation."
"DataSift's expansion shows the market for insights into Twitter's real-time data is growing and producing thriving businesses. Now, more developers than ever can meet increasing market demands by filtering 250 million tweets a day into instantly actionable information."
"Essentially, DataSift's platform searches through user conversations on social media sites (just Twitter for the time being) to formulate business-related insights based on hundreds of millions of social media posts per day. The platform is also able to filter social media data by demographic information, online influence and sentiment."
"DataSift goes beyond what many social media monitoring companies do, says founder Nick Halstead. Instead of just searching on keywords such as "Nike," DataSift can search on all the people, products, and links associated with the company, then slice and dice the data for different departments such as marketing, product and the like."
"DataSift has spent roughly the last four years creating a software that would allow simple coding commands to filter through the billions of tweets and organize them for easier analysis and action."Closer look at a CEO: DataSift's Rob Bailey
"Twitter is revolutionizing communications, news and how companies interact with their customers. DataSift is going to be a core driver of that change. I'm passionate about Twitter and the opportunities it presents."
"Social media has amplified the already fast-paced nature of business today. Companies don't have the luxury to sift through hundreds of millions of data streams every day, only to second guess the appropriate action. What they need is definitive access to real-time intelligence that is impactful to their business — allowing them to easily and quickly detect and respond to major trending events, social behaviors, customer preferences — and ultimately, avert any impending crises. We have been amazed with the demand for our platform in the U.S. and are opening an office to cater to this demand."
"Nine software companies received funds during Q3. The largest deals were: Centrix Software (£6.1m), Datasift (£3.7m) and Exco in Touch (£3m) – all other deals were less than £3m."
"DataSift sorts user conversations from online sources, filtering them for demographic information, online influence and sentiment, and boasts one of only two licences worldwide to make Twitter data commercially available for non-display purposes, allowing users to search for posts using metadata contained in tweets."
