Social Capital by PeerIndex
With all the buzzwords coming out of social media, social capital is one I have trouble picturing and quantifying.
PeerIndex is a neat social capital analysis tool. It aggregates tweets data from users and rate them against 8 benchmark topics:
- Arts, media and entertainment
- Technology and internet
- Science and environment
- Health and medical
- Leisure and lifestyle
- News, politics and society
- Finance, business and economics
Topics analysis is done using shared URLs from tweets.It’s still a work in progress.
PeerIndex also ranks users based on three components: Activity, Audience and Authority. These components are estimated using tweets volume, frequency and retweets.
And yes, for developers, they do provide an API. Sweet.
