Hyderabad (India), 17th October, 2012: Veooz.com, a free online platform that searches and analyzes the user conversations from different social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Blogs has been launched today. The last decade saw a huge surge in the use of social media, generating massive amount of information, opinions, and reviews making it hard to track the social conversations, live trends and insights. Fortunately, now there is a solution.
Veooz, pronounced as views, is a new innovative platform that aggregates and analyzes the buzz around your favorite topics from popular social media networks and puts it all in one place.
The tool presents the pulse of social conversations in the form of Veooz Live Sentiment. It considers all the opinionated posts and offers a real-time measure of social sentiment on a given topic. A Veooz Live Sentiment of +70% means 70% of the opinions are positive. Similarly, if more than 50% of opinions are negative, then a negative rating will be displayed by Veooz.
“Veooz is a first-of-its-kind free online platform that gives a unified view of the live sentiments, current trends, world’s views, and influencers’ opinions on any topic of your interest. With veooz.com, you can track social conversations, see the Live Sentiment on any hot topic and even post your opinions to your social networks. We currently monitor Twitter, Facebook, news comments and blogs, with support for other social media platforms coming soon,’’ says Dr. Prasad Pingali, CEO of SETU Software Systems
The platform has been developed by SETU Software Systems, an Indian startup, following several years of research into semantic search and sentiment analysis. The tool has already analyzed user conversations on over 500 million topics and boasts a processing rate of 100 million views a day.
“With purpose-built powerful crawlers, robust sentiment analysis engine, and advanced NLP techniques, Veooz can process massive amounts of data in near real-time and provide the most accurate sentiments. Built on the back of proprietary state-of-the-art technologies, Veooz can rapidly understand and analyze human generated text,’’ says Srini Koppolu, Chairman of SETU Software Systems.
