Almost every monitoring tool out there includes sentiment analysis. In fact there’s a whole subsector of social media tools that ONLY do sentiment analysis. It’s hot because I will absolutely agree that it’s the best insight you can possibly get from social media data.Sentiment tells you why someone said something and it gives context to the situation. If you are monitoring a specific issue relative to your organization it gives you an indication for how people react to that issue. But the issue is accuracy of these tools. Does anyone know what the most accurately rated tool scores?
I’m sorry that was a trick question. This article though it does have the kind of sensationalized heading I mentioned earlier explains the problem with sentiment accuracy claim and that is there’s absolutely no standard or common metric for measuring accuracy. Therefore any company can make any claim on accuracy using any formula they made up to make it sound believable. There is so much grey area and the fact is computers are built to measure quantifiable data and measuring sentiment is really more about qualitative. It’s not a simple positive or negative, depending on who your organization is and what you do and what your stance is on an issue, something could be perceived as negative or positive or neutral. It’s not black and white.
The alternative is human powered sentiment but that in itself is not a perfect solution…

Typical cycle for organizations using social media:1. Use it like a megaphone: post outward messages, no monitoring, no engagement. (Marketing)2.
