Reuters has launched a new social media hub, providing a real-time sentiment guide to what news, companies and people are hot on the Web.
The Social Pulse hub provides a guide to the reading matter of people who Reuters' journalists and official accounts are following.
The company has also teamed up with data outfit WiseWindow on a real-time sentiment index that ranks the top publicly-traded companies across six sectors - technology, finance, healthcare, industrial, energy and cyclicals. The index combines the volume and sentiment of a company's mass online opinions to show how sentiment is shifting in relation to its stock price shifts.
Other Social Pulse features include a listing of the most social CEOs, developed by Reuters with Klout and a Twitter directory to help visitors find the musings of the firm's 3000 journalists.
