Banter™—Online Social Media Monitoring & Analysis
What are people saying right now about my brand, my company, my products? And what does it mean?
The World Wide Well (Of Information)
There is a wealth of information being shared this very minute in the form of chatter on 15 million active blogs, 10 million Twitter users, and huge social
networking sites such as Facebook and Ning. Posts made through online news and social outlets often are made by category influencers and provide a glimpse
into their thoughts, concerns, and desires.
You could think of the Internet as the home of the world’s largest, unmediated discussion forum. And more companies want to monitor these exchanges to stay
abreast of trends, attitudes, experiences, and needs that could impact their products, brands, and categories.
Using search engines to track user-generated content can produce unwieldy results that might be relevant but are not necessarily up to date. Nor can they provide
the in-depth analysis needed to make good decisions for your business.
