Updated big data on the Israel-Hamas conflict

In preparation for my appearance on CTV News Channel this morning, I’ve updated and expanded my analysis of big data coming from the Israel-Hamas conflict. Expanding the scope means the numbers in this update will differ slightly from those I reported yesterday. It’s also important to note the data I’m providing here includes data collected for today (November 16) from 12am-6pm. So, the dip on the November 16 side is due to the fact we’re only into the first quarter of the day.

In addition to Twitter, Forums, News and Blogs, Marketwire/Sysomos MAP has helped me identify 1,200 Facebook updates over the last three days. I suspect the number of relevant updates in FB is likely higher than that number suggests. Facebook search abilities are limited, plus many users restrict access to their updates.

The two data sets that follow are for Twitter and Blogs, respectively.
