    • 26. Twitter: terminology• Follow: subscribe to see the posts of another user• Follower: someone who follows you• Tweet: one post of 140 characters• Hashtag: Word with # in front to categorize the post – People can follow one subject – Free to choose• Retweet: resend the message of someone else – Spread news• Trending topic: the most popular subjects• Mention: a tweet that addresses (mentions) another user in the post (with @ sign)

(real data, experimental) – Sentiment and retweets and/or reach in variance analysis• What type of message has the best effect – Text / image vs shares/likes/retweets – Second person / first person vs shares/likes/retweets• Can social media feedback predict share value – Regression with share value over time, number of posts over time, post sentiment

Examples• Which brands clusters are there in industry X – Cluster analysis of associations of brands (Red Bull – Vodka)• What types of brands tend to have the biggest social media success – Compare brand groups based on followers, likes and posts about the brand• Do you have the same social relationships online as you have offline? – Compare interactions with friends online with the top rated friends offline
    • 38. Examples• What is the difference between social content on Facebook in comparison to Twitter – Compare Twitter and Facebook accounts of one organisation and see how the reactions differ• Does peer endorsement work better than celebrity endorsement? – One part of the group sees Facebook friends that endorse a brand, the other part of the group sees celebrities to endorse the brand
    • 39. Examples• What are the associations people make with certain product groups (for example sigarets )? - Input can be used for designing an effective campaign for or against usage of the product.• When a brand is associated in social media with a certain word like ‘amazing’ or ‘splendid’, does mentioning the word in campaigns or commercials lead to a higher liking?
