How Big Data Works

Discounts for your success (advertising)!

There are more than 4,2 billion websites on the World Wide Web. Each individual accumulates sometimes more, sometimes less information – and thus data. Big Data is therefore on everyone's lips. The Rede is from enormous amounts of data that are produced on the Internet or in other networks, accumulate in databases and are available there.

Above all, social media platforms, forums and blogs invite the user to exchange ideas, express opinions, rate products or companies, share photos or videos and thus generate data and let the social web grow further.

The Pandora's box is open

Social media are virtual. However, the influence and power that they can sometimes exert are very real. Shitstorms can seriously put established companies in economic danger. Bad product reviews can shatter the sales figures.

Unsatisfactory working conditions get around in no time and can fuel the “war for talent” clear make more difficult. Transparency is a double-edged sword, but Pandora's box is now open. It is important to arm yourself and not to underestimate the power and influence of social media, but to use it for yourself.

The era of social exchange ... online

Alone the possibility of the social Online-Exchange seems to inspire users to interact, share and exponentially increase the resulting data. Especially everyday topics such as shopping, travel, Education and Health feed the social web.

On average, every Internet user spends 2,5 hours a day on social media platforms. The data that he produces does not only make ever-larger data processing and storage servers necessary, but also reveals information about him.

This includes his preferences, fears, experiences and wishes. In this way, the platforms are better acquainted with it, as well as influencing the decisions of other users.

Let the data speak

uniebook, as the world's largest online community, collects more data through its API than any other social one Network. The “Like” button is pressed 2,7 billion times a day on the platform. 2,5 million pieces of content are created every minute.

With each click, post and comment, the information about the users increases, condense and reveal more.

What data are collected by HR platforms?

But also HR platforms such as LinkedIn collect large amounts of data about their users. For example, 22 percent of LinkedIn users between 500-999 have connections to others on the network.

A connection to 301-499 people shows 19 percent. This “professional data” helps LinkedIn, for example, with its “Economic Graph”. draw up.

Predicting the future with Big Data?

To Definition from LinkedIn, this is “Transformation mapping of the global economy to connect talent with opportunity at massive scale”. Here, too, the realization only succeeds thanks to the enormous amount of data - "massive scale".

Google can predict the development of unemployment based on the search queries. But Facebook knows beforehand who will fall in love.

But what language do they speak?

“The expansion of the Communication in digital space [...], calls for new analysis methods and tools, ”says Prof. Dr. Dr. Thomas Schildhauer from the Institute for Internet and Society the Humboldt University in Berlin.

Because, of course, there is an outstanding data density in the social web, but it is usually unstructured information. In order to actually generate the optimum from Social Big Data, the goal is to monitor and analyze.

Professional social media monitoring

Professional social media consultancies and monitoring providers have been around since the beginning of the millennium, with the tools and time to carry out a well-founded analysis invest.

It is encouraging that over time, companies have become more aware of the importance and potential of social data from the Internet.

The complexity of the analyzes has increased

However, the complexity of the analysis and monitoring has also increased enormously. The amount of data produced on forums, blogs and platforms is growing steadily. So also the specialization of the individual channels.

I would recommend any company to use a professional and coordinated social media listening system that combines automatic identification with an analytical interpretation. Google Alerts are no longer sufficient for the professional area.
