Jamiq.com is a multilingual social media monitoring and measurement solution. The service provides the largest coverage of social media in Asia. The site uses advanced data mining and natural language processing technology to provide real-time buzz trending, sentiment detection (positive or negative), influence scoring (scores the influence of the media where activity is happening) and market segmentation on a given topic. Once topics are entered, the user has a My Topics page, which gives a summary view of each of the topics the user is monitoring. The summary includes entries today, change since yesterday, entires yesterday, majority media and majority market.
Clicking on an entry in the My Topics summary list brings up a detail view of that topic. Data shown includes a graph of the number of entries for the topic. The user can select the date range for the data to display. The detail view also shows the average number of entries per hour, the average influence factor per entry and the average sentiment per entry. Clicking on any of these items will bring up a chart of the item for a selected date range. The detail page also features a Compare feature, which allows the user to compare the data from two topics at the same time. Other information shown includes the top 5 markets, a summary of media types (microblogs, news, etc.) and the top 5 sites (sites with the most entries). The user can also elect to receive email alerts daily or weekly at a specified time.
