@Hospice, as long as competitive advantage can be had by being in the forefront of applied analytics, there will be businesses pushing the envelope so they can get a leg up on the competition.

@tomsq   Great point, honestly are we really equipped to understand the analytical data that comes from this type of endeavor ? 

Sure there are some who can lead the charge, but can the largest corporation in world - (the government) extend this expertise to every corner of it's domain ?  

 

I doubt it.

I am skeptical how much can be gleaned from text and social media as far as the government is concerned.  The precision necessary for the granularity sought is just not there. 

Though I am sure this will not stop the government from giving it - the " ol College try."

@Noreen,

At this stage, social media analytics is more about "sentiment analysis" of user generated content. Nothing fancy or innovative so far.

@Broadway,

"The analytics is done behind the scenes and in secret."

Maybe, but any considerable advances in social media analytuics will already be known to the research community.

@Pierre,

Natural languages are highly ambiguous. It is commonly known in natural language processing that a simple sentence (or word) can have many different interpretations. Sometime only the knowledge of the state of the world can help resolve the ambiguity. In the case of " #nowthatcherisdead", we need more information (that is out of the text itself) in order get the meaning of the text.

@Noreen, from what I've heard some people are pretty fairly advanced with social media analytics -- they just don't tell anybody how they do it. The analytics is done behind the scenes and in secret.
