Who’s Big in Big Data?

10th April 2013 6 Comments

Our talented data science team analyzed the amount of social interaction around big data in 2012.

A record number of Tweets were reported relating to big data within the technology sector in 2012 showing a continual growth of social interaction around ‘Big Data’. Using our sophisticated social data platform, we ran a DataSift Historics query against our hot list of Big Data products and conversations to identify which vendors were the most socially interactive, which domains were the most favorable in publicizing ’Big Data’ Tweets, the quarterly traffic progression for mentions of ‘Big Data’ and the most Tweeted stories.

We’re proud that a BBC News article on DataSift took 2nd place for the most shared Big Data stories of 2012.
