Appinions (formerly Jodange) has launched a new software platform that enables a view of the opinions key influencers are expressing across the Web, social media and blogs. The company says the software is a suite of easily configurable, opinion-based applications based on a sophisticated opinion extraction and aggregation platform.
Appinions currently targets two markets: publishers and media companies on the Web, as well as brand managers, advertisers, marketers and other research organizations. Appinions is also introducing a number of downloadable online opinion apps that demonstrate how to harness the power of opinions and experience the next generation of Web content presentation:
- Appinions Lens--automatically see opinions from across the Web relevant to topics found in any article;
- Appinions Cubes--surface opinions based on any pre-selected topic such as WikiLeaks, energy or healthcare;
- Appinions Heads--group opinions around popular themes such as Sports Appinions (players, teams and events) or Celebrity Appinions, which delivers the latest news and gossip about more than 1,600 celebrities; and
- Appinions W3 for Politics--search for political opinions by keyword, topic or opinion holder for a quick understanding of who's saying what in the political landscape. Appinions W3 Politics can be configured to cover any topic or sector.
