Q: Which method are we using for the sentiment analysis?

We've partnered with Semantria to provide comment-level sentiment analysis

Semantria extracts the sentiment of a document through the following steps:

  1. Semantria breaks the document into its basic parts of speech, called POS tags, which identify the structural elements of a sentence (e.g. nouns, adjectives, verbs, and adverbs).
  2. Algorithms identify sentiment-bearing phrases like "terrible service" or "cool atmosphere."
  3. Each sentiment-bearing phrase earns a score based on a logarithmic scale ranging between -10 and 10.
  4. Semantria combines the scores to determine the overall sentiment of the document or sentence. Document scores range between -2 and 2.

For example, to calculate the sentiment of a phrase such as “terrible service,” Semantria uses search engine queries similar to the following:

  • “(Terrible service) near (good, wonderful, spectacular)”
  • “(Terrible service) near (bad, horrible, awful)”

 

Each result is added to a hit count; these are then combined using a mathematic operation called “log odds ratio” to determine the final score of a given phrase.

 

Q: If you label a comment as spam, does it get marked as spam on the native network as well?

A comment will only be marked as spam within Falcon and not on the native network. After marking a comment as spam in Falcon, you can choose to delete the comment and still maintain a record of it's original content. Please find more information regarding spam filtering here.

 

Q: Do I get an alert when notes are added to a comment?

There is currently no option to get a notification when notes have been added to a comment. However, the "notes" button will be highlighted in blue to make users aware of the fact that there are notes attached to this thread.

 

 

Q: How do you calculate the number of new messages?

The number of messages in the left-hand menu reflects the number of conversations that contain unread comments or messages. So if one conversation thread has 100 unread comments - we will show that you have one new conversation to review.

 

Q: How is Influencer score calculated?

The Influencer Score is an indication of a fan's share of interactions compared to the total number of interactions on a page/profile. 

The score is calculated this way:

activityCount = (Total number of posts + comments for the chosen page / period pr. user).
totalMessageCount = (Total number of posts + comments for the chosen page / period).
influenceScore (pr. user) = (activityCount * 1 / totalMessageCount * 1) * 1000
