Through Google-Colored Glasses: WSJ Sentiment Tracker by NetBase

Well, technology has surprised me yet again – Minority Report became a reality much faster than I thought possible. The splash that Google Glass made at SXSW last week is indicative of Google’s latest product taking us one step closer to new levels of personalization…and in turn, privacy concerns are intensifying as well. The March 16th installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker showed that social media users on Facebook and Twitter are indeed divided on this newest innovation; 59% think the technology can’t wait for the “cool” glasses, while 12% find them decidedly uncool, 26% expressed concern over [...]

This holiday season has taking our number of social engagements to a whole new level. This past weekend, we had four different destinations on the schedule, and luckily I had my trusty iPhone in hand to navigate us from one locale to the other.

While I was taken aback by the UI of the new, recently released Google Maps app, I figured it out quickly and found it super easy. And looking [...]

Visions of the Future: WSJ Sentiment Tracker by NetBase

I got my first pair of glasses at the tender age of 5, and as soon as I was green-lighted for contacts at age 11, I never looked back. Barring shades on a sunny day, I do my best to stay away from glasses…so I’m not sure how I feel about the announcement of Project Glass, Google’s latest innovation of social-media-savvy eyewear.  The April 7th installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker looked at the response from Facebook and Twitter users, and while 77% of the conversation reflected feelings of excitement and anticipation, I have to say I sided [...]

Google – Don’t Be Evil: WSJ Sentiment Tracker by NetBase

When the new Google privacy policy was announced last week, I knew there was no chance I’d have time to read through it and take in all of the changes. Luckily, this was the subject of January 28th’s installment of the Wall Street Journal Sentiment Tracker, so I got to see what people chatting on social media, the world’s largest focus group, had to say about Google’s privacy policy.  Powered by NetBase, the Sentiment Tracker showed that while 55% of social media users on Facebook and Twitter are opposed to the changes, a close 43% support the changes and find [...]
