Mine Hidden Insights

DataSift doesn’t just deliver raw data. We analyze each Tweet, bitly click, and public Facebook conversation to derive insights about language, demographics, sentiment, and entities and topics mentioned. This provides you with an unprecedented way to mine insights from social data.

DataSift's visual Query Builder enables non-technical users to easily create rich filters on the fly. You can use the same filter for both your real-time and historical queries. Query Builder is made available under an open source license, so you can modify it to fit your needs, and even embed it into your own applications.
