Text Mining can be used to monitor social media

Measuring public opinion was always about extrapolating from surveys and hoping the small sample you selected was representative of the general public. Today, individual public opinion is ripe for the taking on Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Reddit, WhatsApp, and whatever new product review or augmented-reality platform pops up next.

With the advancement of Artificial Intelligence, we can now analyze texts using different types of software.

For one of my research projects, We have analyzed 40,000 Amazon Reviews of Smart Wearable Devices like Fit Bit, Samsung Gear 2, and 3. The Following output provides us an idea, what people are talking about your brands or products. It may be difficult to go through 40,000 reviews because of a large volume of unstructured data. With the help of Automatic Content Analysis, you can easily understand what is important to your customers.

Why “Long-tail Keywords” are important for your Website?

When it comes to Keywords, as a brand or e-commerce website, you should ask yourself the following questions:

WHAT type of keywords do customers type/use when they are searching for something ? How do they type them ? Where do they type them ?

We can use some free tools such as Google Trends and Google Ads Keyword Planner for more insights. There are also many others : Ubbersuggest, Keyword Tool, Soovle, SEMrush (Premium), Wordstream Keyword Tools (premium), MOZ Keyword Difficulty (Premium), etc. Each of them has its own advantages and/or disadvantages. However, choosing one over the other is down to personal preference and previous experience.

Usually, we can have two types of keyword: Short & Long-tail. Long-tail keywords usually represent 80% of all traffics of a Website. They help companies to attract qualified audience (people who are exactly looking for your product/service). In addition, the competition is often low for these keywords and companies will have a better ROI.

Deep Learning can be used to Investigate the Digital Behaviour of consumers

A picture can tell thousands of words. Can we analyze images posted on social media and review platforms? Yes, we can. With the advancement of the Artificial Intelligence area, researchers can use deep learning to understand images. We have used deep learning to Investigate the Digital Behaviour of consumers.

In this research, 4,000 photos of nine Chinese restaurants posted on Tripadvisor’s website were analyzed using image recognition via Inception V3 and Google’s deep learning network; this revealed 12 hierarchical image clusters. Two examples of these clusters are provided below-

Cluster Name: Atmospheric cluster
This cluster of images is generated through the help of deep learning.

Cluster Name: Decorations using lamps in Restaurants
This cluster of images is generated through the help of deep learning.

The above clusters provided us an idea of what type contents consumers are posting on social media. These will also help restaurants to formulate different strategies such as improving the atmospheric environment and decorating using lamps. Competitors can also learn about their competitors by analyzing the images posted by consumers on online platforms.
