As of today, the Crimson Hexagon social media analysis library contains just over 400 billion posts and is currently growing at a rate of one billion new posts every two days. The company has been comprehensively archiving social media data since 2008 and provides customers with historical access to this entire set of content as part of a subscription to the Crimson Hexagon ForSight™ social media analytics platform.
Crimson Hexagon is one of a select few companies with access to the full historical public database of Tweets , which contains every public Tweet published in all languages worldwide. In addition to Twitter, Crimson Hexagon collects and archives many other global social media content sources.
Major sources of content in the Crimson Hexagon 400+ billion-post analysis library now include:
- Full Twitter firehose
- Brand wall and select public Facebook posts
- YouTube comments
- Millions of online news sites
- Millions of blogs
- Millions of forums
- Chinese micro-blogging site Sina Weibo
- More than one hundred consumer review sites, including TripAdvisor, Amazon and Epinions
This depth and breadth of content allows Crimson Hexagon’s global customer base to not only analyze a comprehensive set of current social media data, but also compare available data and results going back to 2008, providing powerful consumer insights to aid in strategic business decision making.
Because it’s not a semantic analysis based approach, the Crimson Hexagon ForSight platform is also language and character-set agnostic, and can perform analysis equally well in non-English languages. Today, the Crimson Hexagon ForSight platform is being used on a global basis by corporations and government agencies to accurately analyze social media posts in languages as varied as Japanese, French, Arabic, Spanish, Portuguese, Chinese, Russian, Bahasa Indonesia, Dari, Pashto, and Urdu.
