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.

Which Singapore-based Coupon Startup Gets The Most Buzz?

This post first appeared on YoungUpstarts.

Singapore-Coupon-Startups

Taking the lead from posts on coupon startups in Asia, we at JamiQ embarked on an experiment to understand the buzz taking place on the Singapore social media around these brands.

Trends & Insights

  1. The best tactic for spreading the word on current offers is best done on the real-time social media. In this case, it’s working for Beeconomic who gets most of its mentions out on Twitter.
  2. BrandsFever gets the most coverage in the news and blog coverage. In fact, it is the only coupon startup in our list that gets mentioned across all media types.
  3. It’s a pity Voucherous and SGsavings.com didn’t get any mentions in the week. In today’s fast moving consumer space of coupons and discounts nothing matters more than buzz on the social media.
