With more people in Japan using services such as Facebook, Twitter, and LINE, the expressions “social media” and “SNS” are becoming more and more commonplace.
As the popularity of social media grows across the world, in addition to using it as a tool for communication and information dissemination, we also turn our attention to using it as a tool for “social listening.
Today, billions of people use social media for messaging and communicating, thereby generating huge amount of data, which is commonly known as “big data”. From big data, we can gain insights of for example, customers’ true feelings and frank opinions of a product; due to this, big data is sometimes referred to as “the mountain of treasure”.
Social listening is a research and analysis tool for discovering valuable information such as hidden customers’ insights and customers’ images of products and services. Today, more and more companies have adopted social listening. By conducting surveys and analyses based on such data, companies can find places for improvements in their products, monitor risks, forecast demands for products, in order to improve marketing and promotion measures in the future.
