NetBase Holiday Shopping Mood Meter Measures Consumer Sentiment About Retailers for Black Friday and Beyond

Embeddable Dashboard Available for Websites

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/21/12 -- NetBase, the Enterprise Social Intelligence (ESI) Company, created the Holiday Shopping Mood Meter to measure the feelings expressed on the social web by shoppers about ten popular U.S. retailers: Walmart, Target, Best Buy, Macy's, Amazon, Old Navy, The Home Depot, Sears, Toys R Us and Kohl's.

"Holiday shoppers love a great deal, but flying blind to the mall can lead to disaster," said Lisa Joy Rosner, CMO of NetBase. "We created the Holiday Shopping Mood Meter to help consumers get a glimpse of how retailers are stacking up before storming the crowd."

The Holiday Shopping Mood Meter is updated hourly and uses NetBase's natural language processing (NLP) technology to measure positive and negative sentiment expressed about the brands. The comment box will be updated with top reasons for the rankings. The meter widget is available now through 2013 for media to embed on their website. See instructions below.

What is the Mood Meter?
The Holiday Shopping Mood Meter includes a gauge, updated every hour, for 10 U.S. retailers that captures and measures the feelings expressed by consumers online. Watch the ranking change as the arrow for each brand moves between positive (100) and negative (-100).

How does it measure mood?
NetBase analyzes each online mention about the 10 retailers with technology that understands how humans speak -- profanity, slang and more! To learn more about the NetBase technology, click here.
