BOSTON - August 26, 2014

Somera, a social media analysis and research company in Turkey, today announced a new partnership with Crimson Hexagon, a leading provider of social media analytics software. Through the implementation of Crimson Hexagon’s ForSight™ platform, Somera will identify relevant social media conversations and provide customers with robust and actionable social media insights.

Crimson Hexagon’s ForSight social media analysis technology will assist Somera in meeting the strategic needs of its client roster, which includes companies in the banking, media and broadcast TV industries. Using Crimson Hexagon’s ForSight, Somera will incorporate in-depth conversation analysis and consumer research into their reports and advisory services to their clients.

Sercan Çelebi, chief operating officer of Somera said, “Social media is a crucial source of consumer insights, trends and opinions. Every social channel has its own leading crowd and character, and the theme of each can differ periodically. The ways consumers share through Facebook can differ from how they share through Twitter and blogs, for example. Bringing out relevant insights requires a broader perspective, a more in-depth dataset and the best technology. We selected Crimson Hexagon as our primary solution partner to do just that.”

Çelebi continues, “Through our partnership we are able to provide clients with accurate and actionable social media insight. The Crimson Hexagon ForSight platform’s unique opinion analysis algorithm brings the human perspective into the equation, as the data is trained by the human eye to produce data-driven insight and results. Crimson Hexagon’s technology does not simply count social media mentions or binary comments, but provides a view of the genuine sentiment and opinions around a brand or topic of interest. When looking for an ideal partner, we looked at features and benefits that would give us in-depth insight and nothing we’ve experienced comes close to providing us with the intelligence and user-friendliness provided by Crimson Hexagon.”

Along with access to the full Twitter Firehose, Crimson Hexagon collects and archives many additional global social media content sources. Crimson Hexagon’s ForSight platform currently leverages an in-house data library of more than 475 billion social media posts. Presently, Crimson Hexagon adds one billion posts to its database every two days. This depth and breadth of on-demand social data allows Crimson Hexagon’s global partners such as Somera to analyze a comprehensive set of social media conversations and to compare available data and results going back to 2008, providing powerful consumer insights to aid in strategic business decision-making.

Luke Moore, EMEA sales director, Crimson Hexagon said, “Through the partnership with Somera, we have the ability to power in-depth analysis and actionable insight into how consumers are engaging on social media to inform key business decisions for brands and help Somera continue to enhance its offerings to customers in the banking, media and TV industries.”

Ideal for global partnerships with companies like Somera, the patented analysis algorithm that powers the ForSight platform is language agnostic and can perform analysis in any language. Customers can easily leverage Crimson Hexagon’s global content sources and language-independent analysis capabilities without additional complex set-up processes.
