Analysis tool for social media: Integrum Social Networks

Integrum Social Networks permits the systematic evaluation of the large amounts of data generated in social networks. The analysis tool (available in the Russian language version only) makes it possible to search social media (Twitter, Facebook, VKontakte, LiveJournal, etc.) for individual keywords and to break the results further down into individual days and weeks.

What functions does the analysis tool offer?

A distinction can be made between the actual posts and the associated comments. Further, the number of positive or negative statements on the respective keywords, the network of origin, the age, gender and geographic distribution of the authors can be visualized. Search requests can be stored in addition and can be used for the long-term monitoring of different topics. Hence, researchers can evaluate the dynamics of social networks in great detail, introducing completely new possibilities of researching.

Integrum Social Networks in available exclusively in a Russian language version.
