Introducing: Multitude

People often think of events as a 1 dimensional entity – you go to an event, you listen to the speakers and their presentations; if chance permits, you and the audience are allowed a question or two; and then you are left to your own devices to crystallize your take-aways from the event towards the end.

What if we could change that though? What if we could provide a way for audience members to interact with content or presentations in real-time and change the way information is fed to the audience?

Multitude is a platform built on our core JamiQ Buzz technology and visualized in the form of a real-time Twitter wall. And because everything is real-time, there are endless ways to implement interactivity into your events.  You could have it in a debate for instance, with the Twitter wall highlighting the audience’s questions for panelists. You could have it at live concerts or venues, with audience members tweeting about their experience or uploading pictures on the wall!

Tracking the Microsoft-Skype deal

A little more than a week ago, speculation about Microsoft’s plans to acquire skype began spreading all over the blogosphere. Once the deal was made official on May 10th, this speculation snowballed into frenzy – there was immense interest and activity online centred around this topic. Using our social media monitoring tool, we tracked all this activity for the past week to find out what people are saying and how they feel about this announcement.

Here’s a visual perspective of frequently appearing keywords.

It is worth noting that keywords such as Baidu and China also came up as there is already more speculation about Microsoft’s next major acquisition – Baidu, the number one Search Engine in China, with 63% market share as of 2010. Other than that, there was also much talk about how skype was all set to acquire a Swedish start-up called MyWidz before the Microsoft buy out.

The reason why there is so much interest in the deal is because many of us use skype regularly; In fact, it’s so popular that “skype” is now a verb just like “google”. So, it’s no surprise that people are starting to wonder how this deal will affect their skyping experience from now on. Perhaps the most interesting angle to explore here is ‘how do people actually feel about this deal?’. We used the JamiQ sentiment detection tool to find out.

Visualizing the Singapore General Elections 2011

Singapore GE2011 Tracker

The JamiQ team together with our partners at Swarm.is have released a new visualization project specifically for the Singapore General Elections 2011. This project is a showcase of technology, design, and application in real-world situations.

The Singapore General Elections 2011 Tracker is a visualisation project that reflects the true national agenda set by the social nature of online discussions and trends around Singapore’s 2011 General Elections. The goal of the project is to help the public follow the elections by separating the signals from the noise by trending the top topics being discussed and showcasing the top articles being shared. The project looks at news articles, blog posts, and Twitter data to identify the top mentioned keywords and the most shared content.

How to read the visualisation?
The visualization is made up of two main parts: Today’s Key Terms (centre) and Most Shared Content (right). The lines between Today’s Key Terms and Most Shared Contentso the co-relation between the two. Which trending topics are found is the top links. The lines trailing toward the left from Today’s Key Terms show the day-by-day history of the trends. Check back anytime for a live snapshot of what’s trending.

What data do you use?
We use news articles relating to “Singapore Elections” from Google News. Blog posts relating to “Singapore Elections” from Google BlogSearch. Twitter data with the #sgelections hashtag and mentions of “Singapore Elections”.

JamiQ is now crisis ready!

When a crisis hits and mentions of your brand suddenly increases, JamiQ is able to pick up on that trend and immediately send you a notification by email. This new feature uses a unique and intelligent algorithm to predict a moving sensitivity benchmark based on historical data trends within a Topic.

When a spike in the buzz chart exceeds this benchmark, an alert is immediately created and sent to the customer’s email even when the customer is not logged into JamiQ.

JamiQ customers can adjust the spike detection to focus on a particular market, media type, influence level, and even adjust the sensitivity level to ensure all potential crisis are picked up. This feature dramatically improves reaction time for reputation and crisis management.
Spike Detection

This feature is currently available to all existing and new JamiQ customers. For more information on this feature and JamiQ’s social media monitoring solutions, drop us an email at questions@jamiq.com.

Social media and “hacking” in Singapore: Singaporeans react to 369 gangs

Recently, hacking has taken on a different meaning in Singapore.

The gang murder at Pasir Ris Downtown East two weeks back and the slashing of seven youths at Bukit Panjang just this week sent Singapore’s Twitter, Facebook and blogs into overdrive.

Ever though we just started monitoring the Bukit Panjang incident about a day ago, we’ve collected more than 500 posts — in a day! –chattering about gangs in Singapore. Posts are starting to taper off a bit as the news cycle moves on, but there is still a significant amount of chatter.

To do a thorough analysis would take too much time, but just by skimming the posts and using basic tools and filters, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are basically three themes:

Are we safe in Singapore?

The first reaction is that Singaporeans are generally shocked that this is happening. There is a significant amount of posts lamenting about Singapore’s safety and checking up on friends and family, esp. in the Bukit Panjang area. On Twitter alone there are more than 70 of such posts since yesterday afternoon.

Examples:
It still scare me that im meeting my girls where the bukit panjang slashing takes place. Need to stay safe..
HannaFernaldo

Slashing case at bukit panjang now. Wtff, singapore is getting unsafee! Really unsafeeeeee.
SriAtiqaah

Who are these stupid hooligans?

Then there are the Singaporean who are angry at these idiots and wondering why the hell this is happening in Singapore. About 40+ twitter posts.

Examples:
What is wrong w the youths in Singapore today? Downtown East 23 youths arrested, Bukit Panjang 6 youths, all between 15-23yrs old? Why???
thamwaihoong
