The New York Times has an article today about sentiment analysis, a trend which has been accelerating on the back of the Real-time Web– and Twitter in particular. Sentiment analysis is no short-term hot trend. It will eventually become a key feature of search engines, which will integrate the aggregate sentiment of the crowd into search results.
The NY Times article looked at 3 sentiment analysis tools: Scout Labs, The Financial Times’ Newssift, and Jodange. It also mentioned 3 Twitter apps: Tweetfeel, Twendz and Twitrratr. In our post we take a look at five other examples of how sentiment analysis is starting to ramp up on the Web. We invite you to add more examples in the comments.
