Identify emotions and depth of feeling
Emotions – big bold, volatile, passionate emotions – are the driving force behind everything social users share. If you don’t have a way to analyze all that shared sentiment, you can’t possibly know what matters most to the people you want to love your brand. To make the most of Social Media Sentiment Analysis, you’ve got to monitor conversations to learn two key things:
• Whether consumers’ emotions are positive or negative (Net Sentiment).
• How strong those emotions are (Passion Intensity).
When viewed through the lens of conversations about your brand, these combined metrics – measured on a scale from -100 to +100 – establish Brand Passion, a critical value in determining what actions you need to take next. To make that decision, you’ve got to look beyond your brand and get to know your audience intimately.
