Socialbakers Launches Global CheerMeter for U.S. Presidential Elections -Tracks Real-Time Twitter Buzz for Obama and Romney

August 28, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — As the United States Presidential election approaches, Socialbakers, the leading social media analytics experts, has developed a custom CheerMeter tool, which provides a real-time view of Twitter buzz surrounding both President Barack Obama and presumptive Republican nominee, Mitt Romney. Not all tweets are positive, however, and a mention in the Twittersphere is as likely to be criticism as praise.

The U.S. election CheerMeter showcases multiple metrics including the number of Tweeted mentions per hour that both Obama and Romney receive. This information is reflected in Socialbakers’ own speedometers, which graphically present how mentions of each candidate are trending (both positive and negative). Additional data shows the number of mentions per day and the percentage change in this amount from the previous day’s tally. Trend information in an intertwined graph format is also shown from the previous several days.

The site also features integrated live feeds from both Twitter and Instagram, which dynamically pull in content related to either candidate every couple of seconds. Visitors to the site can therefore see both aggregated trend information and granular Tweets and photo posts.

“We’ve evolved our CheerMeter to shed some light onto the volumes of social media buzz about the two primary Presidential candidates and the upcoming election,” said Socialbakers CEO Jan Rezab. “The graphs of the CheerMeter page showcase our ability to illustrate trends in real-time, providing visitors and pundits with the latest information on how speeches, news items, or policy remarks are received by social media commenters. By also integrating Twitter and Instagram feeds, we give our visitors insights into the political views of the average person, which we hope encourages healthy and respectful debate between both sides.”
