Brandwatch Unveils Emoji Analysis with New Report

NEW YORK, January 9, 2018 — Brandwatch, the world’s leading social intelligence group, today revealed its new Emoji Analysis feature. The new capability, which will integrate with Brandwatch Analytics and the Vizia Platform, will be available to all current and future clients immediately.

To showcase the power and depth of Brandwatch’s emoji intelligence, a special report has been published that looks at more than six billion emojis over a two-year timeframe.

The report will reveal:

  • The most popular emojis
  • What time emojis are used the most
  • How emoji use changes around the world
  • How men and women use emojis
  • How you can use emojis to determine sentiment

“Emojis are a real part of the way we communicate today. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then an emoji is worth a hundred,” said Amy Barker, Social Insights Product Manager at Brandwatch. “They may not tell the whole story, but emojis add context to conversations in a way that transcends one language. Marketers have recognized the cultural relevance and contextual richness of emojis, and have started to include them in their messaging – much like they used to adapt popular slang to appeal to consumers. Our emoji tracking features will provide the metrics and filters to the conversations our clients find most interesting and insightful.”

Starting with Brandwatch’s flagship product, Analytics, users will use the same Boolean operators and Queries to search over 95 million sites for emojis. Users will also be able to search conversations at a dashboard level to see which emojis appear in their most important online discussions. In this instance each emoji acts as a filter to uncover insights that transcend individual languages and enhance sentiment analysis.
