  • 15. METHODOLOGY Report Parameters ~  The report currently considers 36 four wheel consumer segment vehicle brands. ~  All publicly available data from channels like Twitter, forums, blogs, mainstream media, YouTube, Flicker and Facebook were tracked for the month of October 2013. Given that most Facebook conversations happen on closed personal networks, tracking them is not possible. Hence their percentage is very tiny in overall mentions. ~  All nameplates of brands featured in the below-mentioned categories were considered. Newly announced nameplates are also considered in the report. Category" Sub-category" Small hatchback" Hatchback" Big hatchback" Premium hatchback" Mid-size sedan" Sedan" Executive sedan" Luxury sedan" Super luxury sedan" SUV & offroad" SUV/MUV/LMV and offroad" Premium SUV" MUV/MPV" Other" Sports car" Hybrid/Green" 15
  • 16. METHODOLOGY Report Parameters ∼  All 12 categories of cars were considered for the attribute study. A sample of 1000 mentions each month were taken for the thematic study. ∼  Publicly available data with the region filter ‘India’ reflected very low volume of mentions on Facebook. Hence we did not consider Facebook data for the sample. 16
