FAQs

Q: How is Falcon’s Sentiment calculated?
A: We have partnered with Semantria, a leading sentiment analysis company, who use a logarithmic scale to determine the sentiment polarity of an interaction.

A Positive mention will contain more favourable words, “I love this product,” for example; while a Negative mention will contain more objectionable phrases, such as “I hate that product.” Neutral mentions could contain a balance of both Positive and Negative keywords.

Q: What languages are supported?
A: Eleven languages can be analyzed:English, Spanish, French, German, Dutch, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish, Portuguese, Italian and Chinese.

Q: Why aren’t all messages analyzed?
A: Where possible, we will provide sentiment analysis on an interaction/mention, however there may be certain times where the analysis is not possible. For example, if a language is not supported or the text is undecipherable.

Q: From when will sentiment analysis begin?
A: We provide sentiment analysis on data collected from 1st December 2014 onwards.

Q: Is this the same as Sentiment in Engage?
A: Yes. The same algorithms that are used to determine sentiment in your incoming messages (Engage) applies to your Listen mentions.
