Is search always the right solution? There are many things you can do with a hammer, but it’s not so great if you need to turn a screw.

Text Classification is an alternative to search that may be more appropriate for social media data analysis. Text classification is the task of assigning predefined categories to free-text documents. It can provide conceptual views of document collections and has important applications in the real world. Using text classification as the foundation for analysis – i.e., teaching a machine to categorize posts the way humans do – can dramatically improve your ability to gather the right data and, ultimately, increase the chances that you’ll uncover what you need to know.
