How to Do Sentiment Analysis in Content Hub

When planning your next great post, it's especially important to keep an eye on how your audiences are feeling about the content being shared. With automated sentiment analysis across all profiles, it's easier and quicker to spot patterns of engagement than having to slog through sentiment tagging manually. With sentiment insight available to you as it comes in, a bigger story about brand perception emerges.

  • Why are people responding to this particular piece of content in a certain way?

  • Is this a consistent reading across most of our content, or just an anomaly?

  • What are these sentiment patterns telling us about our overall strategy?

In Emplifi Content Hub, you can easily drill down into one post's sentiment specifically, or get a view of sentiment on content and messaging over time. Automated sentiment, in particular, allows you to manage this process at scale, saving tons of time and energy. From Afrikaans to Yoruba, automated sentiment is detected for more than 100 languages – check out the full list of supported languages in Languages Covered in Automated Sentiment Analysis.

In Content Hub, you can filter search results in the Unified Feed based on sentiment. This allows you to identify your most positive and most negative content in an instant. Without any manual effort from your side, Emplifi’ algorithm detects and evaluates the sentiment of all comments. Then, it automatically assigns an overall sentiment to that post. There are seven different nuances, reaching from Strongly Positive Sentiment over Neutral to Strongly Negative Sentiment. Posts with less than four comments have No Sentiment assigned to it. 

Simply use the search bar to make your selection, or open the advanced search panel to check out all your search options available to you.

So, what does each sentiment grouping mean? You can always click on the question mark in the advanced search panel to access the tooltip if you're unsure while you're working.
